A GREAT-LOOKING LAWN DOES NOT ONLY ADD A NICE TOUCH TO YOUR HOUSE BUT ALSO VALUE TO YOUR PROPERTY
However, if your lawn looks patchy and uneven even after regular maintenance, it is time for new sod installation.
What Is Lawn Sodding?
Lawn sodding is a procedure that replaces topsoil with sod. Sod is essentially a layer of fertilised topsoil with uprooted grass. It is applied in areas where the grass is damaged beyond repair.
A great-looking lawn does not only add a nice touch to your house but also value to your property. However, if your lawn looks patchy and uneven even after regular maintenance, it is time for new sod installation.

Factors that Damage Your Lawn
Lawn damage occurs when your lawn lacks essential nutrients that keep it looking fresh and healthy. This type of damage happens due to the following reasons:
- Post-construction debris. When residential and commercial buildings are built, rubble and debris from excavation remain at the construction site. This obviously damages your lawn and reduces its quality.
- Improper lighting. Your lawn is not getting enough light causing the grass to grow unevenly.
- Not enough water. If your lawn is uneven, it is hard for water to soak in. This causes your lawn to become dry and lose its colour.
- Areas of commotion. Grass near pathways and garage entrances lose their appeal over time because of the constant traffic.
- Weeds.Weeds on your lawn will grow when the grass becomes thinner. Unwanted weeds will continue to destroy your grass if you do not remove them immediately.
