SEEDING & SOD INSTALL:
At MSG Lawn Care, when considering your Lake Grove NY lawn care and turf restoration project, we are here to advise our clients of the best options for their yards and situations, but ultimately we give all our clients what they want. So if your lawn is calling for a lawn renovation or a lawn restoration we will complete that task. Once again we assure everything we do is done with the highest level of integrity.
When seeding a lawn, the process does take some patience and time. Whether doing over seeding (Lawn restoration) or complete new lawn (lawn renovation) our trained crew will surely exceed all expectations.
The best times to do any seeding projects are September and October being that the weather is optimal, the right air temperature and the proper soil temperature. This is important because it’s a must that we prevent grass seed from drying out in the hot days of summer. Under certain circumstances we will do seeding projects in the spring but ideally prefer the fall.
We go over and beyond to pick the best grass seed for quality, performance, disease resistance, color and drought tolerance. It is important to choose the best seed to have the best results and give that deep green color we all love. Often seed excels over sod in that seeding is more BUDGET FRIENDLY and doesn’t have to endure the stress of being cut up and moved. The seed is grown in one place, the roots are established and turf is never transplanted. Meaning its birth place is its home. Unlike sod which is grown in one place, cut on, bought to a new site and laid. This puts a lot of stress on the turf so it’s important to get the sod laid down quickly and allow the root system to establish.
When it comes to sod, the cost is higher than seed and you’re not given the options of different varieties. But on the other hand you are provided with an instant lawn. When we do our lawn renovations or lawn restoration some of our clients request sod because of timing, upcoming events, less weeds, recent pool install etc.
We properly prep the site for the new lawn which includes removing existing turf with a sod cutter, adding a layer of fine screened top soil, spreading granular and/or liquid fertilizer and laying the sod in the proper way for quick root establishment.
No lawn project is complete until we educate our clients on proper care to ensure optimal results. This includes the perfect watering schedule, when next application of fertilizer needs to be done and when its safe to walk on new lawn. If client requests we will set your irrigation clock to be sure new lawn doesn’t dry out.
