READY FOR A NEW LAWN?
Whether you’ve built a new home or have an existing lawn overtaken by weeds, a new lawn may be an important step in improving your property. We provide several lawn installation options and we’ll work with you to make the right choice based on your needs and budget.
Well prepared, rich soil is the key to success in continued lawn growth and health. We will evaluate your current conditions to assess if additional topsoil or amendments are needed. After the soil is prepared, the lawn will be installed using one of the methods described below.
Sod is the quickest option for lawn installation because it yields immediate results. Although this lawn installation option requires a lot of watering to help the roots connect with the soil laying underneath, it is by far the easiest option for a homeowner to take care of and is the most weed resistant of all lawn options.
Krintz prepares your soil before beginning sod installation. This includes tilling and grading to make sure that the soil is loose enough to allow the roots in the sod to deepen. We only use locally-grown sod to ensure that it is right for the environment it’s being installed in and to support local businesses.
Hydroseeding is a planting process that involves a wet mixture of seed and mulch that is transported in a tank and sprayed across the ground. This is a great option if you’re covering a large area as hydroseeding can quickly cover a big area in a short expanse of time.
Hydroseeding typically sees quick results with grass growth occurring in the first few weeks of planting. We will properly prepare the soil and will work to determine the right seed and mulch mix to be most effective with your lawn.
Broadcast seeding is the traditional method of scattering seed by hand or mechanically throughout the yard. Seeds are typically lightly covered with straw to provide sustained moisture and encourage growth.
Grasses respond well to broadcast seeding and this method is typically the most economical option.
Slit seeding is an option to rejuvenate a lawn that has thinning areas or dead patches from pets, shady areas or kids playing outside. This option is best for refreshing lawn grass that may be struggling in your current lawn but can also be used to establish a brand new lawn. Slit seeding involves using a machine with rotating blades to slice into the soil and deposit seeds. This exposes the soil and allows the seeds to take root in the soil.
Erosion Control Blankets (ECB) are recommended for slopes or different types of soils to help protect the land against erosion from rain, wind and other weather events. ECBs hold the soil in place and help control the flow of water. Typically, these blankets are made from natural or biodegradable materials.
This helps promote vegetation and ensure consistent, healthy growth along more difficult land obstacles (such as hills, slopes, or particularly vulnerable areas of land). We will assess and determine when and where ECBs are needed in your yard or construction site.
