This Is How Houston Grass Would Install Grass Sod at Your Home
How to Install Grass Sod
Any old grass must be removed from the project area before installing the new grass. One way to do this is to use a sod cutter. You can rent one yourself or our installation crew can do the sod removal for you. Some people will apply Roundup, wait for ten to fourteen days and then use a weedeater to remove the dead vegetation. Whether you use a sod cutter or use Roundup and a weedeater, you have to ensure that you kill and remove the old grass before you install the new grass.
Once you have the old grass removed it’s still a good idea to treat the entire project area with Roundup or a similar product to ensure that weeds don’t emerge at the seams between the sections of your grass sod. You’ll also want to till the soil to a depth of at least four inches and work organic matter into the soil when you do. After you’ve tilled the soil, you’ll rake out any debris or clods of dirt and you’ll fill any depressions to ensure that your project area drains well.

Our grass comes from our family farm in Bay City where we’ve been in the grass business since 1981. Most of our grass is harvested to your order and either delivered directly to your project site or delivered to our office to wait for your pickup. We usually have some Raleigh St. Augustine grass available to sell by the piece at our office. Please call 281-431-7441 to order your grass or confirm the availability of Raleigh St. Augustine grass at our office.
