Re-sodding is our most common request and we will be happy to provide a free quote for your re-sod job today. When we perform a sod installation , we make sure it is cut from the field the same day. Installing fresh cut sod helps ensure the best possible transition for your new sod. All of the sod we install is locally grown in Melbourne FL. Installing local sod helps the new sod transition much better as the soil types are usually similar.
For sod removal and replacement we make sure to take out 2″ of dirt using a sod cutter to help remove any seeds for unwanted weeds and insects. Removing enough dirt will allow the new sod to blend in with the older existing sod. This process ensures a more level finished product. Most of the time the yard ends up more level and with better drainage than before.
Many companies will simply rake away the dead areas and throw the new sod on top of the raked areas. Simply raking and not removing dirt will leave an eyesore guaranteed. If certain types of grassy weeds exist application of a special blend of herbicide (not Roundup!) may be necessary before removal of 2″. Ideally we kill the lawn, cut out 2″ using a sod cutter then lay the new sod. A lot of guys simply brown out the lawn using the wrong chemicals then trim it down with a weed eater and throw the poor new sod on top. At Brevard Lawns we ensure the prep area is completely level and also recessed 2″ from all driveways and sidewalks to give a nice clean look.
