Sod for DIY – Skip the Seed and Sod Instead!

Don’t waste your summer waiting for poor results – nothing is more satisfying than turning a rough, spotty yard into a thick green carpet in a day. Sod for DIY is the ideal solution to brighten up a dull yard before a summer or fall event such as a graduation party, wedding or reception, retirement party, family reunion, or baby shower. Install sod yourself using our handy installation guides or let us install sod for you. We have over 50 years of experience in the turf grass industry and we are happy to help you with your next project.

Sod Types

New England Pro Greens and Turf offers two varieties of traditional grass sod: Bluegrass Blend and Tall Fescue. Bluegrass Blend sod is 60% Bluegrass and 40% Fescue. This type of sod offers better drought and shade tolerance than Bluegrass alone and is recommended for higher traffic areas. Tall Fescue sod is slightly more drought tolerant and shade tolerant than Bluegrass but has a coarser texture. It adapts well to low traffic areas and partial shade. Both types of sod are ideal for installation in New England.

Before you place a sod order for DIY installation, take advantage of our Square Footage Calculator and Installation Guides. Written instructions are available to help you prepare and measure your site, choose your grass, complete the installation, and maintain your new natural sod lawn for optimal results. If you find that you still have unanswered questions, or get stuck during any step in the sod installation process, we are only a phone call away.

Proper care and maintenance is essential for healthy growth of your new sod lawn. Download our care and maintenance guide for advice on watering, mowing, and fertilization.
