While laying sod can provide you with a beautiful lawn in no time, it’s important to make some preparations for your new turf grass to thrive. To get ready for your upcoming sod installation in Sunnyvale, TX, watch this video to learn how to evaluate your yard and prepare your soil.

Start by considering how much sun your yard gets, and then check your topsoil using a soil probe to see if it may need any amendments. Next, remove your current lawn, using a sod cutter if possible. Once your old turf grass is removed, till the soil to loosen it, which will make it easier for the sod’s roots to grow deep, and then till in a mix of sand and compost. Finally, after adding lime and starter fertilizer, level the soil before you begin the sod installation.
