New Sod Installation

Installing sod in your yard provides an instantly beautiful lawn that enhances your home and landscaping.  Russell Landscape Services is well suited for any size new sod installation, commercial or residential.  Our step by step installation process has been perfected and includes no short-cuts to ensure you have the healthy, luscious lawn your home has been missing.

Sod installation must be done correctly to insure there are no bumps in your lawn, healthy soil and well rooted sod.  Let us tell you a bit about our installation process:

All of your utility lines will be marked prior to the start of the job, ensuring the safety of your family and our crews.

We will remove any existing sod and all rocks or weeds to prep the site.

The area will be tilled and any top soil or soil additives, i.e. lime & starter fertilizer particular to your job, will be installed here. Soil preparation and grading are the most important steps and we have perfected them.

Now that your site is ready, our crews will get to work laying the sod.  We always place our sod tight up against each piece and in the standard “checker board” pattern.  Once the sod is down every yard is rolled with our weighted sod roller to ensure all air pockets are pushed out and the sod adheres to the soil.

A crew leader will do a final walk through with you and remind you of the steps to care for you new lawn.

Backed by a 30 day warranty our sod installation services will give your newly built home the lawn it’s missing or your current home the sod renovation it needs.  Please call Russell Landscape Services today to schedule your free estimate of our sod installation services, available to Westerville and Columbus, Ohio and surrounding areas.
