• What is the best time of year to re-sod my home?
Answer – If you’re local to the Central Florida area, the optimal time of year to re-sod is October and March. Through mid June to mid September we don’t not recommend installing Seville St Augustine due to increased risk of fungus’s. During the Winter months it is not recommend to install Zoysia grasses as this is when the grass is dormant. Other than these periods for these varieties, we can re-sod year-round.
• Do you spray the weeds before removal?
Answer – Yes, whenever we start a sod project we spray first and that could take up to a week to die. During the summer, usually another week after before we can start the service project. Sod removal service is a bit tricky and we recommend you read up on grass removal processes before you attempt any projects on your own.
