Signs You Need Sod Replacement

Is It Time to Plant New Grass for Your Lawn?

Grass can withstand a lot of abuse, and as long as you keep it clean and dry, it can last for decades. However, grass can also begin to die off. Like any living thing, it is susceptible to disease, invasion, and destruction. Knowing why you need to sod replacement and acting swiftly when the time comes is essential to achieve the lush green lawn you’ve always dreamed of.

Brown Spots

The absence of grass in certain lawn areas indicates that it’s time to plant new sod. The grass can be reseeded easily and might even recover to normal. However, if there are many bare patches in your lawn, it may be time to consider switching to a different type of turf.

Lawn Disease

Lawn disease is never good news, but it’s especially concerning when it’s severe. Unfortunately, some diseases that affect lawns cannot be treated. Property-related diseases can be avoided, but the more they are, the more difficult they are to treat.

Abundance of Weeds

Weeds indicate that there are too many weak spots in lawns and some vulnerable areas simply due to lack of maintenance. However, your grass will weaken as weeds continue to take over (and the softer it already is). The weeds can be eliminated and prevented from returning by replacing the existing turf with denser turf.

Poor Drainage

If your lawn has poor drainage, you might not need to replace the grass entirely, but you will need to aerate the yard and plant new grass after the old grass has died. When you aerate your property, you poke holes in the ground, which loosens the soil and allows water to drain more effectively and your grass roots to spread more deeply.
