GRADING AND SOD WINNIPEG

What is Grading?

Grading is a part of landscaping that involves shaping and levelling the ground to achieve specific contours and slopes. This process is essential for proper drainage, soil stabilization, and a stable foundation for various landscape features.

Overview of the Grading Process

When it's time to grade your Winnipeg property, we take it very seriously. The grading process involves the following steps:

  • Site Evaluation: Firstly, our contractors assess the existing topography, soil conditions, drainage patterns, and potential grading challenges or constraints.

  • Design Planning: Then, we develop a grading plan to outline the desired elevations, slopes, and landscape contours.

  • Earthwork: We use earthmoving equipment to cut and fill soil as needed to achieve the desired grades and contours outlined in the grading plan.

  • Compaction: Our team uses compaction equipment to compact the soil to the desired density, ensuring stability and resistance to settling over time.

  • Finish Grading: Lastly, we perform final grading to fine-tune the contours and slopes of the landscape, creating a smooth and uniform surface ready for landscaping installation.

What is Sod?

Sod, also known as turfgrass, is pre-grown grass that is cultivated on a farm and harvested in sections for transplanting onto prepared soil. Sod provides instant coverage and transforms bare soil into a vibrant, green lawn with minimal time and effort.

Steps Involved in Sod Installation

Our sodding service is precise and has a thorough process. Sod installation typically involves the following steps:

1

​Site Preparation

First, our team clears debris, weeds, and rocks and ensures the soil is loose, level, and well-drained.

2

Soil Amendment

If necessary, soil amendments such as compost, topsoil, or fertilizer may be added to improve soil fertility, structure, and drainage.

3

Sod Delivery

Next, freshly harvested sod rolls are delivered to the site and laid out in a staggered pattern, starting from one edge and working across the area to ensure seamless coverage.

4

Installation

We unroll sod rolls onto the prepared soil and press it firmly into place to ensure good soil contact and root establishment.

5

Watering

Immediately after installation, sod should be thoroughly watered to settle the soil and promote root growth. Regular watering is essential to keep the sod moist during the establishment period.

6

Maintenance

After we provide our service, we practice maintenance, including regular watering, mowing, fertilizing, and weed control, which is crucial to ensure the long-term health and vitality of the sodded lawn.
