What is sod?

Sod is a ready-made grass, that is brought over from a sod farm in a rolled shape. Growing sod on a farm allows for perfectly controlled environment, where thick, strong, and healthy sod can be created.

What is sodding?

Sodding in progress

  • Sodding is a very fast and effective way to create a nice lawn.
  • The sod is rolled over like a carpet, and from day one it looks like a rich and colorful lawn.
  • The thickness of the sod also prevents weeds from growing through.It is much better then seeding, because you don’t leave any room for weeds to grow – and with the (very good) ban on pesticide use, weeds are abundant, and grow much faster and stronger than grass seeds!
  • For each sodding job, we use same-day, freshly cut Sod – to assure quality from day one.

What can we do for you?

Over the years, Niko’s Gardening Services have laid thousands of square feet of grass. Our biggest job so far measures over 10,000 square feet! We are experienced and knowledgeable in everything to do with Sod installation in Richmond Hill, and we offer an unparalleled level of communication and customer service:

  • Free advice and sodding estimates
  • Highest quality soil (Grow-Max), and freshly cut sod

  • Online estimating and billing 

Sod Cost per Square Foot

Cost of Sodding in Richmond Hill – our prices are highly competitive,  and includes sod, 1 inch layer of Grow Max soil and labor. Why should you pay more?
Moreover, since we get our Sod delivered from Angelo’s Garden Center (located on highway 7 and Center) – delivery costs are very reasonable.

There are several factors affecting the cost of installing a new lawn:

  • Project size – The larger the area to be sodded is, the lower will be the cost per square foot. 
  • Quality of existing soil – depleted, clay soil requires more than just one inch of soil to be worked in. We carefully evaluate each project, and advise on soil requirements – our goal is that you install a new lawn only once, for many years to come.
  • Grading issues – uneven areas, or significant changes to the terrain, may affect the cost of installing a new lawn.

 

The process of sodding is simple, and very straightforward:

 

  • We prepare the land, and make sure it is clean, which is the key for successful lawn. In order for the sod to remain green over time, the soil must be rich with minerals, so the roots would take and have enough nutrients to continue their growth. For that reason, we use triple mix (part soil, part compost, part manure), or Grow max– a wonderful substance to use for sodding, planting etc’. Grow-Max is the best and the highest quality of soil for new sod installation available in Richmond Hill.
  • Next, the land is leveled using a heavy roller. The grading is done according to plan designs or customer specifications.
  • Before the sod is installed, the freshly leveled soil is enriched by a natural, phosphorus reach fertilizer, to encourage healthy and rapid growth. Our fertilizers are natural, and most certainly pesticide-free.
  • Finally, we lay down the sod, and immediately , you have a brand new lawn!

 

Can sod be laid over triple mix?

Yes. In general, sod can be laid over any type of growth medium. However, the more rich that medium is with nutrients, the better it will grow – short and especially long term. We’ve wrote a blog post about it.

 

Grow max soil - best for sodding

Triple Mix is a good choice. However we recommend grow-max whenever available – that’s what we use in providing our services.

Grow max is a higher grade type of soil, with higher level of nutrients, and much better moisture and air holding properties – very important factors for the success of a new lawn. We have experimented a lot with the various types of soils, and we have proven time after time, that when sod is installed on a bed of Grow-Max soil, it is easier to keep it strong, deep green, and healthy over time.
