Frequently Asked Questions
The cost of sod installation varies widely with the size of the job (larger jobs are less expensive per square foot) and the complexity of the installation (grading, weed control, excavation, etc.).
In general, our sod installation services cost about $3 per square foot, including the cost of labour, materials and disposal.
We use locally grown Kentucky Bluegrass. Because bluegrass grows best in full-sun conditions, we blend in a shade seed mix with installation in shadier locations, to improve the health of the turf over the long term.
All of our quotes come with the option to request raccoon proofing for your sod installation. You can have it done at the same time we do your sod installation (if you know raccoons are active in your neighbourhood), or you can request it following installation if raccoons become a nuisance.
To stop raccoons from turning over your sod, we install chicken wire over the entire surface, pegging it down with large landscape staples. This has proven highly effective against raccoons. We typically remove the chicken wire four to six weeks after the sod installation, but in rare cases raccoons are so aggressive that we opt to leave it in place permanently.
Most quotes start with a quick phone or video call with our head gardener. We'll review your work, and determine the next best steps, which include
- a quote - for simple jobs, we can submit a quote following the video chat
- a site visit - either our head gardener or one of our team will drop by your property during the week to price out the work we discussed
- a design meeting on-site (this is a paid service)
We only require deposits on jobs with a pre-hst total of more than $5000. For smaller jobs, we invoice when the work is complete. Deposits are typically for 50% of the cost of the job, with the balance owing on completion.
