SOD Installation

What is SOD?

“In Agriculture, specifically Horticulture, sod is a patch of grass with soil beneath it, held together by its grassroots or another piece of thin material.”

Another name used for sod is “Turf”.

Sods are used by Landscapers for:

  • Lawns
  • Golf Courses
  • Sports Stadiums



Benefits of Installing SOD

The Following are some of the benefits of installing SOD.

Types of Recommended SOD Grass in North-Texas:

Following are some of the SOD Grass Types recommended in North-Texas:

  • Bermuda Grass
  • St. Augustine Grass
  • Zoysia Grass


Bermuda Grass:

Bermuda Grass is one of the most sun loving warm season lawn and pasture grasses. The most widespread types of Bermuda Grass planted in North Texas Lawns are:

  • Common Bermuda Grass
  • Tifway 419 Bermuda Grass

The 419 is a finer blade grass than the Common Bermuda Grass.

Benefits: Both grasses are tolerant of drought and traffic. They both require full sunlight for their growth and provide with a very good grass cover.

Drawbacks: The major disadvantage is its poor shade tolerance, growing only a few feet in a heavily shaded area. In slight shade, it will produce only a thin turf at best.


St. Augustine Grass:

In North Texas, the most widely grown variety of St. Augustine is “Raleigh St. Augustine.”

Raleigh St. Augustine is Medium Green in color, and is best grown in Heavier clay soils.

The grass, known for its lovely Blue-Green Hue, turns Brown in winters in areas that have a cold climate.

Benefits: St. Augustine Grass is very tolerant of salt and is grown along the coast for that reason. It is SAD Virus resistant. It competes well with weeds.

Drawbacks: Fungal diseases, including “Large Brown Patch” and “Gray Leaf Spot” can cause patches of St. Augustine Grass to die. MoreoverSt. Augustine Grass holds up only to normal lawn traffic. It has relatively poor wear tolerance and won’t thrive in an area with repeated foot traffic.


Zoysia Grass:

 Zoysia Grass is best established from sod. It is a good grass for full sun and lightly shaded areas. It has similar maintenance requirements as St. Augustine Grass and is Slow Growing. It doesn’t need to be mowed or edged as often as other turf grasses.

Benefits: Zoysia Grass will maintain a better color in cool weather, if fertilized during the fall. It is also very water efficient, needing only about a half-inch of weekly rain to thrive.

Drawbacks: Vertical Growth of Zoysia Grass is really slow. Zoysia grass forms heavy thatch, which is a thick, brown or black layer of plant debris between the soil and the grass. If thatch is more than 3/4 inch thick, water, fertilizer and pesticides never reach the soil because they cannot penetrate the tough, dry layer. If Zoysia Grass grows roots in the dry thatch layer, the roots cannot receive water. Although Zoysia Grass tolerates drought, it turns brown and goes dormant without frequent watering during prolonged dry spells.

After trying in vain for 4 months to hire a company to install a small area of sod I was fortunate to find Plano Landscaping. Blake was fantastic with prompt communication throughout the whole process from quote to install. Blake and his crew were professional, efficient and did a great job with the install. I highly recommend them!

Writing a review for NOT!! I was speechlessly happy with Steven and Blake's team! They were so responsive, responsible, trustworthy, and awesome! I've had other companies come out for assessments, but Steve and Blake's team offered so much better service, better quality, better price! Looking forward to working with them for another project in near future! Thank you soooooo much!!! Spreading words!!! =D

My yard was a message from the recent rains and my tiny electric lawn mower couldn't handle it anymore. Plano Landscaping came and knocked it out with no fuss. Great job!

I can't say enough about Blake and the team at Plano Landscaping!! They are beyond fantastic and exactly what we were looking for. Our front yard was completely dead after realizing our sprinkler system broke while we were out of town so it needed all new sod. After getting several different quotes that were outrageous, or even just no response from several different companies, I found Plano Landscaping and I am so thankful!!! Blake was so responsive, and I didn't have to wait several weeks to get the job done which was awesome. They are VERY affordable and don't try to oversell you or change any extra fees or anything. Blake truly cares about your lawn and makes sure they deliver exactly what you are looking for! He recommended what grass he thought was best for our lawn, but presented all options. He even followed up a couple weeks after to make sure all was going well with our new sod. If you're looking for sod installation, THESE ARE YOUR GUYS!!!! Thank you, Blake & Plano Landscaping team!!! Y'all are awesome!
