Sod Improves Gloucester Lawn Quality!
Placing down fresh sod is an excellent way to get the green grass you’ve been searching for. In a sense, you’re giving yourself a whole new lawn, without the waiting that usually comes with lawn care!
Sodding or re-sodding your lawn can also help with erosion, as the sod will attach itself to the soil and create a firm surface. We recommend Gloucester residents reach out to Shore Landscaping LLC following large storms or heavy rainfall, as this is typically when your lawn is in its most vulnerable state. Replacing your sod at the right time could be the difference between a lawn that struggles to keep its color, and one that is lush, green and healthy.
Shore Landscaping LLC Has Your Lawn Care Needs Covered
We provide a variety of services, so if your lawn needs a bit of love we have you covered. See below for a sample of what we have to offer:
Sodding and re-sodding. Sodding is an excellent option for those seeking quick results. If your lawn is looking brown and damaged after a winter, putting down a new layer of sod both saves you time, because you don’t have to wait for your grass to grow, and convenience, because sod can be laid whenever, depending on the type.
Aeration. By aerating your lawn you expose the grass to a higher concentration of water, oxygen and minerals—all the components grass requires to grow stronger and healthier! This is best done in the early or late spring or fall, depending on the climate, so make sure to get in touch with Shore Landscaping LLC before it’s too late!
Fertilization. Sometimes your Gloucester lawn needs a bit of a boost, and Shore Landscaping LLC’s fertilization services can help. Fertilizer is more than just food for hungry plants, it gives them the necessary nutrients they need to flourish. Think about your own body—if you fill your stomach with unhealthy foods, you won’t feel very good at the end of the day. Fertilizers provide plants with the right combination of nutrients they require to stay strong.
Irrigation. It can be frustrating to stand in your yard with a hose, laboring over every nook and cranny of your property, making sure it’s sufficiently watered. Thankfully, Shore Landscaping LLC can help!

Sodding and Seeding
There are a few obstacles when dealing with a sodding project, namely irrigation systems, utility lines and pipes. These can disrupt the rooting process, so Shore Landscaping LLC is meticulous when we examine your lawn. Shore Landscaping LLC won’t waste your time – if we find any of these present we’ll work hard to find a solution. We want your lawn to flourish as much as you do, so we won’t cut any corners.
After we remove the existing lawn, the work really begins. We’ll carefully till the earth and remove any rocks, stones or other debris that may prevent the sod from fully taking. Next, we’ll assess the soil and, if necessary, give it a boost by adding in some compost. After that, we make sure that the lawn is level and even, so the finished product will be uniform. If your lawn is sloped or you live on a hill however, don’t worry. Sod is still an excellent and viable choice, and can still flourish when laid on an angle.
Before Shore Landscaping LLC lays down the layer of sod, we always make sure to put down a layer of fertilizer, which will give the sod a boost as it gets going. By using slow release fertilizer, the sod will receive extra nutrients over a sustained period of time, rather than in one short burst that will see accelerated growth and then stagnation.
The final step in the process is to lay down your new sod, and to wait for the fruits of your labor to pay off!
Sod Isn’t One-Size-Fits-All
Before we lay down your new sod, Shore Landscaping LLC will analyze the climate and conditions and find the type of sod best suited to your area. After all, what’s the point of going through all the steps to rejuvenate your lawn if in a few months you’ll be seeing the same problems as before?
Even within Gloucester we recommend different types of sod depending on where you live and how much time you’re able to dedicate to maintaining it. There’s no one-size-fits-all solution when it comes to lawn care, so Shore Landscaping LLC takes your needs and schedule into account when recommending sod.
Installing or repairing a lawn all starts with good preparation. High quality loam graded to prevent puddling, or the appropriate soil amendments added to an existing lawn so the seed or sod will thrive. After all, the seed or sod is only as good as the soil it’s placed on. Seeding typically will take 10-14 days to germinate but is more cost effective compared to sod, which gives you that instant effect but comes at a higher price tag. If you’re thinking about installing a new lawn or repairing an existing lawn let’s talk about the benefits of each option!
