OUR Process

Sodding your lawn with Independence Landscape involves the following steps:

Your dedicated Account Manager visits your property to understand your needs and develop a game plan. Soon, you will receive a proposal for your sod project, which could incorporate landscape, hardscape and/or drainage work if desired.
A skilled landscape crew will be assigned to tackle your project. First we remove existing turf and debris from the area to be sodded. We then regrade the area with premium topsoil to allow for proper drainage and water flow.
Finally, we lay rolls of mature, fresh-cut turf in your yard. We install the finest sod you can possibly purchase, all harvested directly from the farm to ensure maximum freshness and vigor.
Proper watering of your new sod is critical. We provide clients with detailed watering instructions to help the sod take root and thrive over the first several weeks.
If you ever have questions about your sod or concerns about its health, your Account Manager is always available and happy to assist.

Our Commitment

At Independence Landscape, we show up on time and follow through on our commitments. You can expect your Account Manager to communicate clearly and responsively, and to be available when needed for advice. Our crews are dependable, friendly and attentive to detail. We are here for the long haul, and pledge to get the job done right.

Frequently Asked Questions

We install premium tall fescue sod that has been delivered and installed within 24 hours of harvesting–in its full freshness and vigor, free of weeds, disease and insect infestation. But like any living plant that has been cut out of the ground, loaded on a truck and replanted, it must now reestablish itself with new root growth.

It varies by season. Spring and Fall allow for normal watering because of cooler temperatures and more rainfall. Summer installation requires more attention be paid to watering and keeping the new sod wet for the first 2-4 weeks to avoid burning, excessive drying and/or shrinkage. Rest assured, we provide you with detailed watering instructions after your sod is installed.

Yes. This is a great time to install sod as it requires very little watering, and it will have the most time to fully root moving into Spring.

We recommend you avoid excessive foot traffic on your new lawn to allow roots to firmly “knit” with the soil.

Our signature Lawn Care Program is the best possible way to keep your new lawn healthy and green for years to come. Proper mowing is also crucial.
