Sodding Markham

It is a better choice as opposed to natural grass seeds. It allows you to get your lawn to be completely functional within just a few days. Natural grass, however, requires months of growth.

You can select one of the following options available:

  • Bermuda grass
  • Buffalo grass
  • Kentucky bluegrass
  • Augustine grass
  • Zoysia grass
  • Centipede grass
  • Fescue grass

It's a different matter to choose the correct kind of grass that will thrive in your area's climate. Here are some helpful tips to guide you in choosing the right Sodding in Markham:

Consider Local Climate

The best way to pick the correct type of lawn is to look at the climate in the area. If it is cold all the year, you must select transitional grass, such as Kentucky bluegrass, Ryegrass, and tall fescue.

In humid and hot climates, however, it is recommended to go with St. Augustine, Bermuda, Centipede, or Carpet grass. The reason is that grass blades can turn brown from the summer heat. However, the above types of turf are more resistant to drought and heat and remain in good condition all through summer.

Don't Ignore Soil Condition

Sodding your garden, do not forget the condition of your soil. Examine its pH and then choose the right sod. Other than centipede grass, none of the other grass types can stand up to acidic soil. You can either select the soil that grows well in acidic soils or do something to lessen the acidity.

Consider Sunlight Exposure

Many people do not think about the sunlight exposure they receive every day when they think of landscaping. It can, however, assist you in choosing the ideal kind of grass for your lawn.

Bermuda turf may not last long if your yard doesn't get ample sunshine. It is recommended to plant the Centipede grass and St. Augustine on your lawn because they don't require exposure to sunlight that is bright for development.

Consider Foot Traffic

Do your pets and children often play in your backyard? You need to get sod that isn't damaged because of the high foot activity.
Zoysia grass and Bermuda grass are suitable for lawns that experience large amounts of foot traffic. They can withstand the pressure as well as bounce back.

If your pet is found to urinate in your yard, it is likely damaged by nitrogen. Choose a sod that is resistant to urine which will quickly repair the harm. Ryegrass and Fescue grass is the best choice should your pet is present.

Watering Requirements

Determine ahead of time the amount of time you'll spend on maintaining your lawn. Certain types of grass require constant attention and watering, while other types are more manageable to keep.
