Resodding Your Lawn

resodding your lawnAre you considering resodding your lawn? Fortunately, Central Florida has a mild climate, so resodding can be done almost any time! The recommended and best times however, are October, February, and March. Here at Mansfield, we suggest resodding in the fall time. Avoiding extreme high and low temperatures will help you resod more successfully. During fall, there are less threats from insects and disease, and sod is generally beginning its dormancy period. This means less watering, and less mowing for you. By spring time, it will be more established, and be able to withstand the pressure from weeds and pests.

The first step to ressoding is to have a soil sample done. This will allow you to adjust your nutrition levels prior to laying new sod. When you choose Mansfield for your sod needs, we take care of this for you. You’ll also want to kill weeds at least a month prior to laying sod. There are quite a few different methods. You can also choose to lay sod on top of the old yard that has been cut extremely low, but this can make establishment take longer. Since weeds are a consistent problem in Florida due to the lack of cold winters, they will always grow back. The best prevention is regularly mowing your lawn and maintaining its health.

If you do not already have a sprinkler system installed, doing so before sodding your lawn is the perfect timing. Once the sod is laid, you’ll want to water it immediately, and continue to water every day for about two weeks, depending on the sod type. At Mansfield, we know sod is an investment in your home, and we always leave you with proper care instructions. Be careful when you mow new sod. If it is not rooted yet, the mower could suck up the edges, and ruin your beautiful new yard! We recommend waiting a few weeks before mowing. Once it is well established, you can mow it to the length you’d like.

Consult Mansfield Landscaping with all of your sod questions! We’re here to keep your lawn looking beautiful for years to come.

What Your Neighbors Are Saying About Mansfield Landscaping

Steve is an incredibly talented landscaper... definitely not a run of the mill type. He selects plantings with care and thought for locations and overall design. An added bonus is his conscientiousness towards his customers and the pride he takes in his work... all with good reason. His workers are polite and efficient about cleanup after installing plants. I do not hesitate to give him my highest recommendation.

Julie Moretti (The Villages)

We had a great experience with Mansfield Landscaping. We visited the nursery and saw how healthy the plants were and then sat down with Steve and developed our own concept of palm and shrub borders on the side and front of our house The workmen did an excellent job and you cold tell they cared about how the plants were going in. We now get a lot of very positive comments from neighbors and strangers alike People are calling it "The Botanical Garden"! Mansfield Landscaping is a professional landscaper. They did a great job.

Thank you Steve and your crew.

I first used Mansfield Landscaping a year ago after seeing the unique design work Steve Mansfield did at a neighbor's house. The tree specimens used were more impressive than those typically found in our village and this was the result of Mansfield having a massive inventory and variety of trees, shrubs, and other landscaping materials at his huge nursery in Yalaha-about 30 minutes from The Villages and right next door to the famous Yalaha Bakery. After getting over my initial reservations about Steve's quirky personality, I was thrilled to discover the genuine Steve-a truly unusual individual; a caring and considerate character who gives personal service and attention to his clients! My first job turned out so well that I recently used him and his hard-working crew again to re-landscape an entire house, including the fabrication of a magnificent water fall and stream. While there are many companies doing business in The Villages, Steve's knowledge of the landscaping profession combined with competitive pricing and his emphasis on making his clients happy and satisfied is proven by accepting no money until the job is completely finished. Steve "cranks" out the best landscape design and implementation in The Villages.

Just completed our landscaping design by Mansfield Landscaping and they have exceeded our expectations by far!!! Steve and Ron and the whole crew are very professional and accommodating. They showed us patience in selecting a design, palm trees & plants. Their expertise and talent was proven to us by giving us the 'Wow' factor we were hoping for. We could not be more pleased. Our home is complete now, we can sit back and enjoy the beautiful view! Thank you Mansfield Landscaping.

My husband and I had been driving around for weeks looking at various landscape jobs in the villages and found just one place that we both really loved. We happened to be looking through Nursery web-sites and in looking at the photo gallery we happened to see pictures of the house that we loved under Mansfield's Web site. So we decided to go to the nursery to see what trees they had and how their prices were...(after going to a couple of other local nurseries we were shell shocked at the price of palms!) What we found was a great relief! The tree and plant prices were very reasonable and looked much healthier than many we had seen at other places. Being complete novices to Florida plants we sat down with the owner, Steve, and he gave us a very thorough education on palm trees - so we felt confident in the decisions we were making. We had decided that we did not want to do the "FULL" landscaping job all at once and wanted to start with just the trees so we could then fill-in later as we decided on what we wanted to plant...Steve and his son Ron, then walked us throughout the selection and helped us decide on 9 beautiful 18 ft Palms which they gave us an excellent price on. We set up an installation date for later that week - and Steve called and said they could come a day earlier if that worked for us - which was great as we had company coming in the next day! Ron and a crew came out to do the install, finished the planting in one day, removed some bushes etc that we knew we didn't want and the end result is beautiful - it has changed the whole look of the house....we LOVE it! Even though this is only step one of our landscaping - we are certain that we are going to be using Mansfield for our future expansions!

Job completed Nov 2013. Outstanding quality plant materials,selection, and excellent workers! Steve and Ron were very helpful in the initially designed, listened to our wants, and came over to our new home to discuss the design. We picked and tagged our palm trees and other plants we liked by walking through his vast nursery. When the work began, he brought over may more plants for us to choose from. Amazing! His work team (we had 5 workers) worked well together, cooperative in moving plants round so we found the perfect mix and placement. Steve came in under budget and on time even though, he had two additional deliveries of pebbles for our beds because he wanted to do the job right! Highly recommended!
