Why Sod Installation?
When to Install Sod:
Spring, Summer, or Fall?
Sod is by far better than seeding for three major reasons. 1) immediate full grown, mature, green grass lawn; 2) sod reduces lead chemical exposure; and 3) helps to prevent weeds and soil erosion problems. Sod can be installed from spring to fall. The only difference is in the application frequency of water; in the spring and fall water application will be less than in the summer. Contact Make-A-Garden for your particular lawn, garden, and yard needs.

This Kentucky Blue sod installed front yard lawn is only one day old and was installed in the early spring season and still has the brown look from the winter effects. However, within two weeks the entire lawn will be lush green and ready to be cut. For your lawn needs, contact Make-A-Garden.

Common Grass Varieties
In New York City Area:
Kentucky Blue Grass
Kentucky Blue, however, tends not to do so well
in shaded conditions. It requires at least 4 to 5 hours
direct sun light in order to build a healthy thick tuff grass lawn.
Tall Fescue Grass
Blue and Tall Fescue often does much better than Kentucky Blue in relatively shaded, damp and or water logged areas. However, all grass varieties do best in well graded, tilled, and aerated soil with the right pH level. For more information, contact Make-A-Garden at 718-309-8715
