Does Your Happy Valley Lawn Need Some Help?
So, how good is your front yard looking these days?
It could be that you’ve got a newly built home and haven’t gotten to the lawn yet, or you recently completed a substantial exterior improvement project that messed up your lawn.
It could be you just bought a house where the previous homeowner didn’t care a lot about what their yard looked like.
Whatever situation you find yourself in, it is easy to get new sod installed at your home. And it will make your house look better right away.

A local Happy Valley lawn crew can probably get all your new sod grass installed in just a day or so.
You head off to your job in the morning with a somewhat rough yard, but you get home from work to notice a green carpeted lawn laying in front of your house.
Let Someone Manage the Entire Project
When your new grass is in, you just have to keep it moist for some time. And, in our area of the Northwest, keeping your lawn damp isn’t much of a problem. Mother Nature typically helps with that, but you will most likely still need to do some watering in the first two or three weeks of getting your new lawn.
If someone installs a new grass lawn for you during one of our typically dry Summers, you may have to lightly water as much as several times each day.
Can I Order the Grass and Lay it Down Myself?
Sure, you can complete the turf installation by yourself if you’d like.
There is fresh grass sod for sale and they will quickly bring your order to your house and you and your friends take it from there.
If you have put turf down before, or if your friends who will be helping you have done it before, you might be a good candidate for doing the work yourself. If you have not done it before, just realize that it looks a little easier than it really is.
One point to remember is cut turf is perishable. Once it’s dropped off at your home, you should get working on it right away. It’s not good to have it sit in your driveway for several days before you get working to laying it down.
Sod Prices in the Happy Valley Area – What Will it Cost Me?
The main reason most homeowners purchase sod is it makes their house look nice.
A nice front yard really boosts your home’s curb appeal. And greater curb appeal contributes to a bigger real estate value when you sell. All real estate professionals and property sellers know this. That’s why lawn makeovers are among the most popular exterior improvements on the properties they are working on.
Hardy, thick, locally harvested grass rolls are not cheap, but they are not that expensive either. Plus, you get the benefit of having a nice lawn for years to come.
Not surprisingly, the two key factors in determining your actual cost is how much turf you’re getting and whether or not you will be doing the installation process.
Big lawns cost more than small yards. So if you’re planning on placing the new turf down by yourself, that will reduce the cost too.
And, if you happen to live way out in the sticks (and you know who you are), a transport fee to get to your place might be included. But that occurring is rather rare.
Your next step is to figure out what the size of your yard really is. If you can measure the sections of your yard and put together a decent approximation of how much space you want to include, you can talk with a Happy Valley sod company and they will tell you how much turf you should get.
There is delivery and installation from the Portland area over to the edge of Clackamas County, including Sunnyside and properties in the 97086 zip code.
How Do I Get Started?
1. Draw out a rough sketch of your property and split it up into smaller sized sections.
2. Make all your approximate measurements. Do the math.
3. Pick up the phone and call.
They can answer any question you have.
Even if you are unable to figure out what your exact yard area is, they will try their best to give you an estimate.
You will like having a super nice front lawn. It is going to greatly improve how your house appears from the street.
And everyone in the family will welcome having a healthy grass lawn. It might even help get the kids to spend a little more time outside.
So get a notebook, a tape measure, do a little math and then make a short call.
