Frequently Asked Questions

Aeration helps remove excess thatch, which is a buildup of dead grass that can harbor insects and disease. Aeration also helps roots to grow more deeply and allows water and nutrients a direct path to the root zone.

When you water by hand you usually do it a random and not on a regular schedule. So a timed sprinkler system will generally use less water and allow you to customize your watering program based on factors like sun exposure. Plus, it lets you live your life freely, without worrying about getting home from vacation early to water the lawn.

While new sod can be installed almost anytime of year, it is best to avoid the hottest part of the Summer. The cooler temperatures of the Spring and Fall will enable the new roots to take hold in the soil and the grass to grow during the initial weeks after install.
