Everyone wants a beautiful, green lawn. But growing grass can be a challenge in the hot summers we typically have here in the Rock Hill, SC area. That’s why many homeowners decide to install sod in their yards.
While some people try to install sod themselves, most choose to hire a landscaper like Lee’s Nursery & Landscaping. However, as with any other type of contractor, you should always make sure that you’re dealing with a reputable, qualified company. Here are some tips for hiring a landscaping company to install sod on your property.
First, the landscaper you’re working should be properly certified and licensed by your state and local authorities. They should also have insurance on their equipment and employees. Additionally, they should have liability insurance to cover any damage to your property. These measures are in place to protect you when you hire a landscape contractor, and any honest company will be happy to show you proof of these credentials.
Next, get a proposal and estimate in writing from the landscaping company. This proposal should outline exactly what work is to be done. It should also specify how much sod is to be installed and give an estimated deadline for the work to be completed. The estimate should include a breakdown of charges for materials, labor, and any fees.
Finally, any landscaper should be able to give you a plan for maintaining your sod. If you’ll be taking care of your own yard, make sure the landscaping company leaves instructions for you. They should be able to advise you on cutting, fertilizing, and irrigating your new lawn.
