Sod Installation Services for Santa Rosa County, FL

If you are looking for the best grass for a lawn in Florida, we recommend sod. The top four species of sod for homes and businesses in Pace and the surrounding area are Bermuda sod, Centipede sod, St. Augustine sod and Zoysia sod. We can expertly install the sod of your choice. Our full-service sod installation process ensures your new grass has the healthy foundation it needs to flourish. 

Our Sod Installation Services Include:


The first step in successful sod installation is carefully leveling and sculpting the land to create the best foundation for root establishment and growth. In this business, this is called grading. We handle every step of the process, including removing and hauling away the debris we cut out of the property and ensuring the land where you want to place the sod has proper drainage.

Topsoil application

The right soil mix is critical when installing new sod. We inspect what is already there and add just the right type and amount of topsoil before laying the sod, ensuring your new pad of grass has the nutrients it needs to thrive.

Sod Installation

We place each piece of sod down individually in a running bond pattern. This technique helps the sod grow together faster and helps prevent erosion on slopes. If you have a property with a large lawn, we will install rolls of sod to cut down on your labor expenses.

When is the Best Time to Plant Sod in Pace, FL?

We can install sod any time of year for you, but spring or early fall is the best time for a sod installation project in Pace, FL. With our location right near the Gulf of Mexico, we have sweltering hot summers and short, cold winters. By installing sod in spring or early autumn, your new grass will have time to establish healthy roots and growth before the harsh summer heat or coldest month of winter.

July and August are typically the worst times to install sod in Santa Rosa County since they are usually the hottest months of the year. Sod can literally cook and die if exposed to extreme heat soon after being rolled out. So, it’s wise to choose a time of year with milder temperatures.
