A Solution for Instant Greenery and Erosion Control

Sod is a great way to improve your yard without the wait of the grass seed to take, and there are several different variations of green to choose. Sod also helps with erosion on hillsides and uses less water than grass seed in the long term making this an excellent economic choice. Let Alpine Landscaping take care of your sod care and maintenance today!

What is Sod?

Sod, or turf grass is grass and a small portion of soil beneath it. It is typically held together by the root system and comes in rolls from regional sod farms. Sod is the quickest option when it comes to new lawn services. Since it has already grown, you do not have to wait for the seeds to grow and in most cases you can walk on the sod once it has been laid. The sod installation process includes clearing out old debris and grass on your lawn and then rolling out the new sod on top.

Initial Sod Maintenance Steps

While Sod is already grown grass, it does take some extra steps to thrive on your lawn but you can follow a few simple steps to help it thrive.

Water Your Lawn

When watering new sod, it’s best to water two to three times per day with a watering time of 20-40 minutes for up to 3-4 weeks, or until it takes hold to your soil. After the first 2 weeks of watering you may be able to cut back to 1-2 watering times a day and the time to 15-20 minutes.

How Long Should I Wait Before Walking On New Sod?

While you can walk on new sod, we recommend you avoid it as much as possible until you mow it for the first time. This means that you should keep yourself, pets, children and other animals off it as much as possible. If you need to go across the lawn to get something then that should be fine but ultimately, you want to limit the amount of daily traffic.

When Should I Add Fertilizer To Sod?

This should follow the same rule of thumb as foot traffic on the turf, if not, maybe just a bit longer. As long as your sod is not turning brown or appears to be healthy, fertilizer may not be necessary right away. If, and when you do apply fertilizer you should use a liquid fertilizer as it will get absorbed into the soil quicker. Once you apply fertilizer we recommend you keep up with an application regiment for the first year.

Let’s Make Things Happen

We are a family-owned, family-run landscaping business here in Colorado Springs. We truly love all of the gorgeous landscapes that Colorado has to offer, and it is one of the many reasons why my wife and I moved here from the Mid-West. We help provide homeowners, whether grown locals or new to town, with inviting backyards that are a little slice of heaven in their vision.

“From the very beginning Sam was very professional and communicative. We had him install turf, burms, trees/shrubs and a huge gorgeous gas fire pit seating area. We couldn’t be more happy for how the project turned out. He transformed our backyard into an entertainers dream. I highly recommend using Sam. Very competitive pricing, high quality work and excellent communication.“ Shane Anderson

Our Landscaping Testimonials

Alpine Landscaping literally gave us our dream backyard! Every part of this process was a breeze when we worked with Sam, the owner of Alpine Landscaping. His prices were not only fair, he hit the mark on his estimates, making financial planning for this project easy. We had an extremely sloped backyard, but the retaining wall has now given us a large area where we can sit under our gazebo and enjoy the night, while our dog runs around on the artificial turf. We worked with Sam to plant 6 trees, tons of plants and shrubs, and he ran drip irrigation through the entire yard to keep everything healthy and alive. We have zero complaints about Alpine Landscaping and we plan to use their services to redo parts of our front yard in the near future!

Sharon Harter

First off, anyone who is looking to work with a professional landscaping company, Alpine Landscaping is amazing!! From the start and all the way till the jobs were done, the owner and his crew exceeded what my wife and I expected to be done. Our retaining walls and stone steps look amazing! We plan on using Alpine for all of our future landscaping needs!

David Willhite

My husband, friends, and my three month old daughter were left stranded in an Airbnb here in Woodland Park after a huge snowstorm. We gave Sam a call on a Sunday afternoon (his day off) and he was there to help us within 20 minutes. Both he and his wife brought shovels ready to help us dig our way out. We cannot thank him enough for saving us! They’re good people!

Taylor Larsen

Easily, the best landscaping company we’ve ever worked with! Like many who live in Colorado, we enjoy the outdoors, so we asked for a landscape design that helped us replicate a mountain-like setting at our home. From the beginning, Sam instinctively knew how to bring this vision to fruition, creating a digital rendering for our approval (we made no changes as it perfectly captured what we were trying to achieve). Overall, we’re blown away by our great experience with Alpine Landscaping and the tremendous product they delivered.
