SOD INSTALLATION IN MEMPHIS 

Mid South Irrigation and Landscape does sod installation the right way — our employees are trained, experienced, and have the proper equipment to make your yard dreams come to life. Our sod experts can help you determine what type of sod is best for your unique outdoor space. 

TYPES OF SOD

If you’re not sure what kind of sod is best for your Memphis landscape, let’s take a quick look at the three types we offer: 

Bermuda Grass

Bermuda grass is a quick and aggressive grower. It’s also strong, and can handle weeds and drought-like conditions. If you’re looking to get grass growing fast, Bermuda is a perfect fit for your Memphis lawn. 

Fescue Grass

Fescue grass performs well in both hot and cold conditions. In Memphis, we have both hot summers and cold winter days, making Fescue a good fit for those transitions in climate. This grass is also known to be drought and shade tolerant! 

Zoysia Grass

Zoysia grass is a stunning option that requires a lot of care. This grass performs best in sunny, warm, and well-drained landscapes — if cared for properly, it yields a very lush lawn. If you’re heading north, Memphis is one of the last stops where you’ll see Zoysia grass because it doesn't thrive in harsh winter conditions. 

WHAT TO CONSIDER BEFORE SOD INSTALLATION

We all enjoy pristine lawns — we admire the beautiful grass and foliage as we drive or walk around town. The way sod is installed is crucial to the visual impact of a lawn. When it comes to selecting and installing sod, There are several factors you need to take into consideration: 

Amount of Sunlight

It’s important that we survey the amount of sunlight your lawn actually receives. This helps our team determine the type and variety of grass that best fits your outdoor space. If we don’t survey the amount of sunlight, you could end up with beautiful grass that quickly withers away because it wasn’t the right fit for your conditions.

Current Drainage Conditions

Surveying drainage conditions on your current yard is also crucial to sod installation. If your yard has drainage problems, we need to know in order to correct the issue. Eventually, if not addressed, pooling water will damage your lawn and other vegetation, making it over-saturated. A beautiful lawn can’t remain beautiful if it has drainage problems!

Amount of Soil Preparation

It’s important to consider the amount of prep work you’ll need to do before installing new sod. Getting rid of old grass is crucial to maintain a healthy root system. This isn’t glamorous by any means, but this prepares your lawn for beautiful new sod. Don’t underestimate the amount of work you’ll need to do before you start your new project. 

Current Soil Conditions

A soil test needs to be conducted in order to understand the current conditions of your yard. In some cases, the pH may need to be higher or lower in order to be able to maintain your new sod. Testing allows our team to determine what needs to be added to the soil to make it healthier and to be prepared for new growth.
