Santa Cruz Landscapers has been installing sod lawns for clients for many years. A beautiful sod lawn begins with the proper soil preparation. This includes rototilling of the soil twice, once to open up the soil, and second to add the soil amendments and incorporate them into the soil. This gives air space in the soil, which is very important for good root development in establishing your new lawn. The soil is then graded and rolled. Now that the soil has been properly prepared, the sod is then installed. We use primarily a Dwarf Fescue Blend because it requires less water than some other sods. It also is very durable, holding up well under foot traffic and children’s play.
