During the spring, summer, and even fall months, Cataldo Landscape and Masonry gets questions about sod installation in Wellesley, Newton, and Needham, MA. During the end of the fall season, we receive fewer inquiries, and we believe it’s because many do not realize that sod installation can go well into November and even December! You might have heard rumors in the past that installing dormant sod doesn’t work, but we’re here to tell you that’s simply not the case.
Though sod takes and roots more slowly during the colder parts of the year, by installing early, you are preparing your yard for those first few warmer weeks in the spring. Not to mention, you will be saving yourself loads of water from the snow and spring rain. You will worry less about finding a weekend where the weather permits in our unpredictable March, April, and May weather and spend more time tending to your already placed sod.
If there is one thing we have learned about winter in New England, it is that we can have relatively warm temperatures all the way up to the new year. Now, we’re not talking about beach weather, but land can be warm enough to make ground soft. That said, you can easily install sod in your yard without the fear of it not making it to the spring and summer seasons. As long as the ground is not yet frozen, you can prepare your lawn to your heart’s content.
If you’ve decided that the time is now, then don’t hesitate to contact Cataldo! We’d love to improve your yard before the ground freezes. Our experts can teach you all the ways we can prepare you for the spring before it’s even begun!
