Growing a nice lawn in Austin’s climate is not always easy. But you don’t need to take on this challenge alone. Austex Sprinklers is here to help you with all your sod installation needs.
The most crucial step to take before laying sod is preparing the soil. Without soil preparation, new sod is more likely to fail. Different regions need different prep, including drainage, grass type, and nutrient content. The time of year is also crucial, with many Texas areas having slightly different times where sod installation is optimal.
When installed, sod must lay correctly, no seams or gaps for weed growth to develop. Openings between sod strips can also lead to dead patches that will affect your entire lawn, requiring the lawn to be stripped and restarted from scratch.
Our sod installation services are performed by trained professionals, leaving you with the peace of mind that your new lawn is in good hands. We remove old grass and weeds, prepare the soil, install fresh-cut sod, and even set-up an irrigation system schedule to keep your sod adequately watered using industry best practices.
