Sod Installation Process
- Starting with a Blank Canvas
Lawn Bros will completely remove and dispose of your existing lawn. This is the first step in the sod installation process.
- Ensuring Proper Grade and Top-Soil Installation
Once your existing lawn has been removed our team of sodding experts will identify any areas where grade needs to be adjusted (ground raised up or lowered). Our team will then install the required amount of top-soil and prep the area for laying the new sod.
- Laying the New Sod
Once the area has been well prepped, our team will lay the new sod that was cut from the sod farm earlier that same day and your new lawn will instantly come to life.
Once your sod installation is complete, a member of our team will discuss a good watering schedule with you to ensure the long-term success and health of your new lawn.

Frequently Asked Questions
Often referred to as turf, sod is grass that comes in a sod roll and is held together by roots in about a 2’’ thick layer of topsoil that is rolled up. Each sod roll measures 2’ x 5’ totaling 10 square feet of new lawn per roll. It is a much more immediate and efficient option than seeding and can help prevent erosion and improve air quality and draining issues while immediately improving the appearance of your lawn. Sod is essentially a new lawn that is healthy and free of weeds and grubs (invasive insect to lawns). Sod is installed by rolling out sod rolls that were grown and then cut at a sod farm.
Not only is sod affordable, but it also provides homeowners and business owners immediate results. Though it requires regular watering (which can be achieved with an irrigation system for simplicity), it still requires a lot less maintenance than seeding. It can easily be placed on hills or slopes and drastically improve air quality, flooding, and drainage issues. Our sodding experts here at Lawn Bros will ensure your sod is laid in a timely manner and that it remains healthy and roots properly. We have the experience and knowledge necessary to make your lawn in Oakville, Burlington, Milton, and Mississauga greener, healthier, and stronger.

Typically, it takes 2-3 weeks for new sod to fully root itself. However, you will be able to mow the new sod approximately 10-12 days after installation.
New sod needs to be watered x2 per day for the first week (morning and evening), then x1 per day for the second week after installation. Each watering there should be 1’’ of water applied, enough to penetrate through the sod roll and into the soil below. After this 14-day period resume normal watering practices.
Sod can be installed at any point May-November with the hotter summer months requiring more maintenance (watering). Because of this most property owners prefer Spring /Fall as the ideal seasons to have sod installed, but if you have an irrigation system then you can achieve good results at any point in the year without any extra sod maintenance.
Automated sprinkler systems make everything easier. One of the great features of irrigation systems and automatic sprinklers is that you can set up a weekly schedule and you don’t have to worry about over or under watering. Your system will be programmed to use water efficiently, which saves on water and money. These systems work whither you are home or not. Never come back from a summer vacation again to find your lawn yellow or brown, and plants wilted or dead.
