So you have decided to sod your yard with new turf. Making that decision is just the first step. You have to plan ahead to make sure that you are prepared when your new sod arrives. Here are some tips for making a sodding plan that you can follow through on in a timely manner.
Determine Type of Sod
There are a lot of different types of sod that are suitable for Florida lawns. The most common sod in Florida is St. Augustine, but you can also choose from Scotts Provista, Celebration, Bahia, or Empire Zoysia.

If your sod is not drought resistant, you’re going to need a way to keep it irrigated. Before planting the sod, you should have an irrigation or sprinkler system installed and ready to go. This way you can be certain that the new sod grows roots deep into the soil and remains healthy as it grows.
Don’t forget to plan ahead how you are going to pay for your new sod installation. You may need to dip into savings, save up for a few months, or get a home improvement loan. All of these things can take time, so make sure you start making these arrangements well before you actually purchase the sod.
Make a plan as to when you want your new sod to be installed and how long you feel it should take. Most of the time sod can be installed in just one day, although sometimes it might take longer. We can give you a clear idea of what to expect for a timeline, and we will stick to your timeline as closely as possible.
