 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.

Those are not evergreen; they lose their
leaves in the fall, but do well in the New York City area, and the leaves retain color throughout the season. For a tree planting project, call 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.
 
Kentucky grass sod is great for lawns in high sun lit areas. Make-A-Garden supply and install Kentucky grass sod
Blue Grass
___________________________

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
 
Tall Fescue is best for lawn areas with minimum sun light of less that 4 hours per day. Make-A-Garden supplies and installs Tall Fescue sod

Soil Fertility
