Newly seeded grasses must receive adequate moisture to assure germination and early seedling survival. Our team will return to the property to make sure that your new grass gets the right amount of moisture and has the best chance to root properly and thrive in your yard.

What to Consider When Installing a New Lawn

When choosing whether to sod or seed your new lawn, what type of grass to choose and the exact location where you want the lawn takes some consideration. There are several important factors to take into account when making these decisions. The following are the most important things you need to consider:

  • Time – How soon you want your perfect lawn. Sodding is clearly the quickest way to reach your ideal landscape.
  • Climate – The northern Illinois climate and seasonal weather conditions will affect when you want to plant your grass and dictate how to maintain it.
  • Use – Whether you are going to set up tables to entertain guests or your children and pets are going to be running across the yard will help determine what type of grass would be best and how you will maintain it.
  • Water – Your water resources are critical to starting your lawn and maintaining it. Access to water is a key factor in deciding the type of grasses (maybe native) that will best thrive in the amount of water available.
  • Light – The types of grass you choose may depend, in part, on how much light and shade are in certain areas of your yard. You may need more than one type of grass to adequately cover each location.
  • Maintenance – How much watering, mowing, weeding and other lawn maintenance that you want to do or have us do, will greatly influence the type of grass and other decisions for your lawn.
