What time of year is best to install sod?
One of the many advantages of sod is that you can successfully install it throughout the growing season as long as the ground is not frozen and you have sufficient water to get it well rooted. Sod especially loves cool temperatures and frequent rain during Spring and Fall. Summer can be hot and dry; be sure to water your new lawn deeply and thoroughly in the morning and afternoon.
