Put That Lawn Mower Away!

Winnipeg is full of big lawns and beautiful green spaces—and a lot of that is thanks to sod.

We are a professional sod installer in Winnipeg and the surrounding area (sod is a combination of grass seed and soil sold in rolls). Beautify your lawn, increase the value of your property, and live a greener life with our healthy, durable Kentucky Bluegrass sod—grown to withstand Winnipeg’s harsh climate!

Kentucky Bluegrass is by far the most popular type of sod in Winnipeg. With incredible winter hardiness and good drought tolerance, it grows well in almost any type of well-drained soil. Our sod is made up of 100% Kentucky Bluegrass in rich mineral soil.

Once your sod is installed, feel free to over seed with other types of grass. Some grasses that are complementary to Kentucky Bluegrass include Creeping Red Fescue and Perennial Ryeseed—they both grow wonderfully in Winnipeg, and seeding multiple grasses will make your lawn more resilient (and beautiful).

All Winnipeg Lawn Care Plans Include:

Site evaluation and measurement

Before ordering and installing the sod, we evaluate your property.
This process includes:

  • Finding obstacles such as tree roots
  • Identifying potential drainage issues
  • Measuring the total footage of the project

Accuracy is essential here—we use the total square footage to determine how much sod we need to order.

Soil testing and preparation

As part of our site evaluation services, we’ll test your soil to ensure that it’s ready for the sod. We’ll test your soil’s:

  • pH levels
  • Nutrient contents
  • Moisture

We’ll also prepare your soil, adding lime if it’s too acidic and sulphur if it’s too alkaline. When the soil is too dry, we recommend watering it for a day or two before the sod is installed.

Removing existing grass and debris

In order to install the sod, we first remove any existing grass on the property, as well as any weeds, debris, and other obstacles that might impede laying the sod. Depending on the project, we may do this a day or two before the sod is laid to give us a chance to grade and prepare the soil.

Installing sod

Once the soil is prepared, we install the sod. The process involves laying out rolls of Kentucky Bluegrass sod in a special pattern that minimizes the appearance of gaps of dirt between rolls. Our Winnipeg sod installation pros will carefully lay out the sod so that trees and other elements of your landscape are incorporated seamlessly.

Rolling and watering

With the sod laid out, we use a sod roller in order to improve the contact between the grass’ roots and the soil. After rolling, we’ll thoroughly water your new lawn in order to promote growth.

Sod care after installation

We want your new lawn to thrive, so we’ll give you all the information you need to care for your new grass. Typically, we’ll lay sod late in the springtime; we recommend watering it twice a day, but here in Winnipeg, Mother Nature will often do the job for you in mid-to-late May.

You’ll want to mow your lawn about one week after it’s been installed. We’ll also give you recommendations for when to use fertilizer.

Cost of Sod Installation in Winnipeg

Factors that influence the cost of sod installation

The cost of installing sod in Winnipeg varies depending on a number of factors. These factors include:

  • The size of the project
  • The quality of the soil
  • Obstacles that might impede work (leading to more labour hours)
  • The amount of grading required
  • Whether or not existing lawn must be removed
  • Whether or not weeding is needed
  • The installation of additional features (sprinkler systems, etc.)

The size of the project plays an interesting role—larger commercial projects are typically more expensive in total (there’s more sod to be laid), but less expensive by square foot. Contact us for commercial rates in Winnipeg.

Average cost of sod installation in Winnipeg

For residential customers, the average cost of installing sod ranges from $3 to $6 per square foot. The variance is higher for commercial customers, but the costs tend to be lower (as commercial properties tend to be much larger).

Tips to reduce the cost of sod installation

Homeowners can reduce the costs of installation by doing some prep work yourself—weeding, removing rocks and debris, and ensuring that the installers can easily access your yard.

Another way to reduce the cost of installation is to choose a trusted property maintenance company like Cleanr to install your sod for you. You’ll always get a great price and value from doing business with us.

Frequently Asked Questions

Generally, sod takes about two weeks to root. During this time, you should water it frequently and take care not to step on it.
You can mow your new lawn once it grows out enough to be mowed—usually about a week—but if possible, we recommend waiting about two weeks until the sod is fully rooted.
