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

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!

After contracting with Mansfield Landscaping, they were hard at work the next day. Within three days we went from boring to beautiful. We are the first on our block to have the landscaping changed from the original to something unique. To say it stands out is an understatement. We couldn't be more pleased.

I wanted to take a minute to personally thank you for the great job you and your staff did on my back yard at my house. Everything turned out so beautiful. Every time I call you, I receive great, on time service at a fair price. You cannot ask for anything more than that.

Thanks again for having your staff stop by and put out the colorful annuals, just in time for Stephanies wedding. It really added that finishing touch to my already beautiful yard. Thanks for everything.

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.

Patty & Rick Nowicki

We discovered Mansfield Landscaping through our friends in the Village of Hadley. They gave us a good review of Steve's work, so we decided to visit his showroom/nursery. We are from Minnesota and know NOTHING about palm trees! We were looking for an education and lots of information about Florida landscaping.

Steve was so great with us! He showed us many different varieties of palm trees, along with plants that do well in this area. He also has an excellent display of both stone walls and rock--you can really see the different colors so you know what you are getting.

Later that same day, Steve came to our villa, came up with a plan and gave us an estimate. Three business days later, his crew showed up with a truckload of between 70 and 80 plants and the palm trees we wanted. Steve brings many, many plants to the job so you can select the ones you want--which is a real advantage, in my opinion.

The crew finished the job on time, and did an outstanding job! We had both our front and back yards done, so there was a lot of dirt on our concrete. They cleaned up everything and did a great job at that also!

Our job was completed a week ago, and since then, Steve has been back at least 3 times to check on what we think, how everything looks, and to make sure we are watering like we should be. His follow-up service is excellent.

We highly recommend Mansfield Landscaping if you expect 100+% satisfaction in a timely manner with no hassles. We recently engaged them to make additions and improvements to our current landscaping. We were able to quickly schedule a meeting and have the project completed in a very short time frame. They understood exactly what we were looking for - in fact the results more than met our expectations at which time we requested additional work which was also completed within a few days! They are very professional and an absolute delight with which to do business.

Steve from Mansfield Landscaping did a great job in helping us design our landscaping. Ron and John did an excellent job in seeing that the design was carried out and the final result was way beyond our expectations. They should be very proud of the work that they have completed for us. The entire crew was very hard working, friendly, dependable and polite. They did a great job with the clean up after the project was completed and the job was completed exactly when Steve said it would be done. Excellent and well run company.
