Lawn Installation Vancouver - Sod & Grass

Vancouver has a great climate for growing new grass or installing sod. With a long growing season and mild temperatures most of the year you can start a seed lawn anywhere between March and September and install a sod lawn year round. The easiest way to install a lawn is to install a sod lawn. We do both but usually recommend using sod as it is a lot less maintenance when you are just starting out. They both have pros and cons but please Contact Landscaping Vancouver today to find out details and prices for new grass at your landscape.

Sod and Grass Maintenance & Chafer Beetle

Although grass grows extremely well in vancouver we do have some problems which include chafer beetle destruction. The European chafer beetle started to show up in the lower mainland around 2001. It has steadily spread all over the Vancouver area and is a huge nuisance for home owners. If you are having us install a new lawn for you due to chafer beetle infestation we suggest you treat your lawn using nematodes when the time is right and most of all we suggest that you follow a thorough maintenancee schedule. The chafer beetle is everywhere and there is no getting away from it. If you grass is healthy and you have been watering, fertilizing, and liming on a regular basis they are unable to cause as much damage and will have a harder time getting established. A yearly treatment of Nematodes should be able to take care of them if your grass is healthy. Take a look at this information from the City of Vancouver to see what they suggest.

Sod Vancouver

There are 2 different methods used for a new lawn installation around Vancouver.

Sod or Turf grass

People often call this one “instant lawn.” Our crew will come in and clear the area where the sod needs to go, amend the soil with lime and fertilizer, level and roll it flat, fertilize, and lay the lawn. The finished product is nice and level and gives a deep even green. There is no limit to the size or shape of yard we can do in this fashion. The grass can be walked on right away but 3 weeks are recommended before heavy use takes place. Sod can be installed any time of the year in Vancouver; however, if the sod is installed after the middle of November will not root and should not be used until spring when it will root and will grow fine.

Grass Seed Vancouver

Seed lawns are less costly initially but will result in more work than a sod lawn. They do have advantage however. They can adapt to the planting environment perfectly as the lawn seed types that thrive in this certain environment will grow the strongest. For instance if you have a really shady spot seed is recommended over sod installation. In addition to this the initial cost is a bit less. There is a place for seed but we recommend turf for most of our customers as it is only slightly more costly and provides instant satisfaction. Unlike sod, seeds can’t be planted after the middle of September or before spring. It takes anywhere from 3 months to 5 months to fully establish and the soil must be weed free before starting or weeds will come through. Once complete, it will give you a dense lush lawn that will be treated the same as a sod lawn.

Whether you live in Kitsilano, Dunbar, Kerrisdale or anywhere else in Vancouver, North Vancouver, West Vancouver, Richmond, or Burnaby a new sod lawn will increase your property value as well as give you a nice green space to enjoy. We are able to service all of these areas with quick turnaround time. Please contact us today for a free estimate.
