2. Debris Removal and Rough Grading
We remove the debris that was cut out, and haul it away to be disposed of. A rough grade is put on the property by an equipment operator.
4. Installing The Sod
Residentially, sod typically comes on pallets. Each piece of grass is put down individually in a running bond pattern. This helps the sod grow together faster and help prevent erosion on slopes. In large open areas, the sod can be installed on large rolls to save on labor expenses.
