Does Your West Seattle Lawn Need a Little TLC?
So, has your lawn seen better days?
It can happen to the best of us.
Some people may have a new home and they haven’t gotten to the point of putting in a new yard yet. Other homeowners may have just finished an exterior remodeling project that tore up their front yard.
Still others may have just purchased a home where the previous homeowner was not too interested in what his yard looked like.
Whatever the situation is, you can get your yard looking good again. And it can happen very quickly.
You Can Be One of Those Guys That Has a Great Yard
An experienced West Seattle lawn contractor can usually get all your new turf installed in a single day. The transformation is fast. One day you have a nasty-looking yard and the next day you have a brilliant green lawn.
They Deliver and Install in West Seattle
Once they get your new grass down on your lot, all you have to do is keep it watered until your new turf is established.
And, in our city, that usually isn’t a big problem. Our weather typically helps out with the moisture, but you will still need to do some watering in the first two or three weeks.
If it is July or August when you put your new grass down, you will need to be more attentive to it. Most Summers, we don’t get much rain, if any, so you will probably have to get your hose out a few times every day and water a little bit.
Can I Just Order the Grass and Put it Down Myself?
Yes, you can do the entire sod installation part yourself if you really want to.
Your local farm offers new sod for sale and you can have them truck your order to your place and you can do the rest.
Laying it down across your yard isn’t the hardest home improvement job there is, but, like a lot of things in life, it is harder than it looks.
If you are planning on finishing the sodding by yourself, your priority should be to get to it as soon as your order is dropped off.
Most people don’t realize it, but grass from a sod farm has a shelf life. It is perishable. You will need to get it laid down on the ground and watered as soon as possible.
What is the Cost? Sod Prices in West Seattle
We don’t need to sell you on the benefits of having a nice-looking front yard.
A nice lawn increases your home’s curb appeal. It adds to your home’s potential sales value as well (in case you are thinking about selling it). Improvements to the front yard is a common sales tool of the professional home seller and house-flipper.
Hardy, weed-free, locally grown grass sod rolls are not cheap, but they are not too expensive either.
Obviously, the two big factors in determining your final cost is how much product you are ordering and whether or not you will be doing the installation for you.
Big yards cost more than small yards. And if you are going to be putting the new turf down, that will reduce the cost too.
Now, if you happen to live way out in the sticks (and you know who you are), the transportation cost to deliver to you might be a little higher. But that is pretty rare.
If you can walk around your place, measure your yard and come up with an estimate of how big your coverage area is, you can talk with a West Seattle sod company and get an idea of how much you need to order and the cost for them to bring it to your house and lay it down. If it works out, someone might be able to actually come by your property and do the measuring for you.

Four Steps to Do Now

Have some questions? They will try to answer them.
If they can, they will give you an estimate on price and an estimate on when they can do your project.
Having a uniform, green front lawn can greatly improve the appearance of your entire house.
And a nice thick lawn might also encourage you and your entire family to spend more time outdoors. Think about it. Your kids actually spending some time outdoors.
So get a notebook, a tape measure, do a little math and then make a short call.
