Grapevine Sod Installation

What Exactly is Sod?

Sod is a roll of living turfgrass that has been grown from seed on a professional farm. These farms use only the highest-quality seeds. Seeds are usually blended or hybrid sprigs.

The seeds are planted in the best soils, which produces very strong roots. A rigid regimen of mowing, watering, and fertilizing is maintained.

After about 10-18 months, the sod will be ready to harvest. Once the sod is harvested, it goes straight to you.

In cold, winter months sod will keep for about a week. During the summer, sod needs to be put down immediately because it starts to decompose after 24 hours.

JC’s Landscaping promises to lay down your sod on the same day it’s cut.

We offer different varieties of bermuda, St. Augustine, and zoysia turfgrasses.

Bermuda

Bermuda is a warm-season grass grown often in North Texas cities because it is very drought-resistant. Which means it is able to withstand the brutally hot Texas summers.

Bermuda grass can handle heavy foot traffic and will recover rapidly from it. It’s so durable in fact, that it’s often used on farms. Animals can walk and graze on it and the turf swiftly grows back.

This turfgrass is a perennial and that makes yearly maintenance simple and worry-free. Bermuda is a fast-growing grass that will quickly fill in any holes or gaps in your lawn.

One drawback is that bermuda is not shade-tolerant. So keep this in mind when choosing sod.

Bermuda is tolerant of salt and humidity. Bermuda originated in Africa and is seen as a weed there because of how aggressively it spreads. For this reason, you will have to put in time and effort in order to maintain a healthy, vibrant bermuda lawn. Check out our lawn maintenance page for options. 

Here at JC’s Landscaping we pride ourselves on offering grass blends. If your yard does have some shady areas, we can suggest a blend that will grow well in sun and shade.

St. Augustine

St. Augustine or buffalo grass is a warm-season turf that originated in Africa. Similarly to bermuda, St. Augustine is also tolerant of salt and humidity, which bodes well for homeowners with pools.

This turfgrass is able to withstand extreme heat and actually thrives in hot temperatures. St. Augustine has deep-rooting capabilities, which makes it a great choice for sod because it will establish itself quickly.

Different varieties of St. Augustine will have different features. One St. Augustine cultivar, Floratam (created by the University of Florida and Texas A&M) is one of the most drought-resistant varieties. The Palmetto variety is soft, dark-colored and does well in sun and shade.

St. Augustine is one of the most popular turfgrasses grown in Texas. Call JC’s Landscaping today to discuss which specific variety will work best for your lawn.

zoysia

Zoysia

Zoysia grass is the third type of turfgrass most commonly grown in North Texas. This incredibly versatile grass is native to southeastern Asia and New Zealand.

The grass spreads through underground stems called rhizomes or stolons. This turfgrass is fine-textured and very soft.

There are many strengths associated with zoysia turfgrass. One of them is that zoysia is shade and drought resistant.

Some varieties of zoysia have been bred to withstand colder temperatures. Zoysia can handle moderate foot traffic and is normal-high maintenance.

Zoysia is a slow-growing grass, which means less mowing. For this reason, zoysia is typically established through plugging or sodding.

It’s important to note though, that Zoysia turf does have a history of thatch problems. With that being said, zoysia grass should be dethatched and aerated annually.

Grapevine Texas

Grapevine is a growing suburb of the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex. The name grapevine comes from wild grapes found growing as far back as 1843.

Cotton used to be the city’s primary crop, until it was surpassed by cantaloupe farms in the 20th century. In 1974, when the DFW airport opened, the city further evolved into a regional center of commerce because of its proximity to the airport.

JC’s Landscaping is pleased to extend our services to the fabulous city of Grapevine.
