At A Greener Tomorrow, our landscaping company in Los Angeles understands that a great lawn is a hard thing to achieve. That’s why we’re here to help you with our excellent turf, sod, and grass services. If your lawn is beyond repair we’ll be there to install a lovely new layer of turfgrass and restore your yard to its former glory.
A Greener Tomorrow uses a wide array of techniques to ensure that you end up with the best looking lawn on the block. Our skilled team of sod and turf installers are experts at laying down new sod or grass in Los Angeles and the surrounding areas. We specialize in tilling and herbicide and can even lay new sod over your existing lawn.
A well-manicured lawn can make all the difference in the appearance of your yard and home. Great lawns are the envy of neighbors, the sites of the best barbecues and a soft, comfortable surface for the kids to play on. Plus, a beautiful lush carpet of grass isn’t just pleasing to the eye; a terrific lawn will actually raise the property value of your Los Angeles home.
A Greener Tomorrow uses only the finest quality drought tolerant sod from specialty grass farmers. Our high-quality turf is a mixture of Kentucky bluegrass or fescue and we use only the finest top soils, to ensure that your new lawn is rich and healthy.
Once the sod has been laid, A Greener Tomorrow will take all precautions to ensure that your new lawn stays perfect. We’ll fertilize and arrange watering to assure a strong growth start and if necessary apply lime and grub killer. If you’re near greater LA or Culver City, contact us today to schedule a meeting with our landscaping design experts to find out more about our sod & installation services.
At A Greener Tomorrow, our sod is a special mixture of Kentucky bluegrass or fescue, which has been specifically cultivated to be drought-tolerant, perfect for the climate in Los Angeles and other surrounding areas in Southern California. This grass is well-suited for long-term periods of unrelenting sunshine, and it holds up well to activity, so you don’t have to be afraid to let your kids or dogs run around on it. It is resistant to fungal disease and it’s also adaptable for shady areas. We’ve done our best to ensure we provide the best sod and grass products available. With the fine topsoils in our sod products, your lawn will be happy, healthy, green.
Because we’re blessed with a fairly consistent and pleasant climate here in Southern California, you can carry out lawn installation at pretty much any point in the year. However, certain seasons are better than others if you’re looking for optimal results. Fall is generally the best time for sod installation, with Spring close behind. These seasons are a bit more forgiving in terms of heat and sunlight, but they’re also not as chilly as winter. If you install your sod lawn in summer, it will promote great growth, but it will also require much more water. If you want a new lawn as soon as possible but you’re concerned about doing it in an “off season,” don’t be afraid to contact us and get a professional opinion. We provide our services year-round, and we’ve seen countless lawns flourish, despite being laid out in winter or summer.
As a veteran landscaping company in the LA area, we’re no strangers to seeding, and there are, in fact, certain circumstances where one might want to seed their yard. But while seeding is definitely cheaper than sod, it’s also a lot more work. A seeded lawn requires a long-term commitment of time, attention, fertilizer, water, weeding, pesticides, and more. Not only that, it could take years to reach full maturity. For most average California homeowners, it’s enough work just setting up auto-watering irrigation and keeping their grass trimmed. Unless you’re a natural-born green thumb, sod is going to be the best option for your yard. Sod can provide you with a green, grassy yard within the course of one day. It’s aesthetically pleasing, easy to maintain, and it holds up well to punishment. In just about every sense, it has been manufactured to be the ideal solution for suburban homes.
With the majority of professional services, sod and lawn installation included, it’s not impossible to do the job by yourself. If you do enough research, get all the stuff yourself, and commit a lot of time and hard effort to the job, you could ostensibly install your own lawn. But, also similar to other professional services, it’s easier, faster, and more effective to call a professional. A Greener Tomorrow has been in business for nearly 15 years, and in that time, we’ve learned all that there is to know about installing sod grass in a way that leaves your yard looking absolutely beautiful. There are many mistakes that can result from a DIY approach. Here are some of the most common errors that happen, which can all easily be avoided by calling A Greener Tomorrow:
Not preparing the soil correctly
Ordering too much or too little sod
Not understanding the ideal order in which sod should be laid
Ripping or tearing the sod
Bad connections and/or bumps
Bad watering habits
When you call our landscaping company, you’ll not only have a guarantee that the job will be done to perfection, but we’ll also fill you in with everything you need to know to keep your grass healthy. We’ll advise you on how much you need to water, how to proceed, and so on. DIY efforts may save money, but in every other regard, you benefit greatly from calling landscaping professionals.
The good thing about our Kentucky bluegrass-based sod is that it doesn’t require a whole lot of effort to keep your yard green and healthy. But, that doesn’t mean you can just neglect it and expect everything to be gravy. Here are some things you should keep in mind after your fresh sod/lawn installation:
Make Sure You’re Providing the Right Amount of Water: On average, most sod lawns need about an inch of water a week. However, you should consult with us to get an exact figure for your yard. It may need more or less water depending on your location, amount of sun, and so on. Too much water can drown plants, and too little can starve them.
Keep Your Grass Trimmed: Many people assume that lawnmowing is only done for aesthetic purposes. Not true — it’s actually healthier for your grass to keep it relatively short (but not too short). Mowing also leaves grass clippings, which can act as a natural fertilizer. If you’re not a fan of mowing your lawn, be sure to contact us for lawn services!
Fertilize Annually: Sod grass lawns in Los Angeles benefit from fertilizing treatment at least once a year. If you have any questions about the ideal fertilizers to use, or you want us to just take care of it for you, our lawn services will come in handy!
We wouldn’t call ourselves landscaping experts if the answer to this question was “no.” Indeed, we’ve carried out thousands of landscaping designs for folks all over Southern California, and as far as we’re concerned, nothing is impossible. However, if you want a unique design for your yard, you definitely shouldn’t try to do the job on your own. Measurements have to be exact and precise, and it’s also tricky knowing exactly how much sod you need to order. But ultimately, if you have grand ambitions for your yard, we aren’t going to be the ones to stop you.
Though we briefly mentioned it in one of the questions above, A Greener Tomorrow was founded in 2006, though our combined experience goes way further back than that! Our founders and owners, Carmen and Luis, have been in the landscaping game since the 70s, both born into gardening families. They’ve been doing landscaping work their entire life — it’s even how they originally met! And in all the time that’s passed, Carmen and Luis have not only applied their own expertise to the work, they’ve also been prudent in their hiring choices, only bringing on team members who could rise to the impeccable standards of quality that A Greener Tomorrow represents. When you’re calling professionals, experience is always a good thing to look for, and we’re happy to say that we have it in spades.
We’ve been Southern California natives our whole lives, and we’re proud to serve Los Angeles with our lawn care services. Of course, just saying “LA” is a little vague. The truth is that we do our best to provide our services to anyone who needs them, which is why we don’t like to get too specific with our areas of service. Greater Los Angeles is a big place, but in most cases, we’re happy to make the drive if you have a need for our high-quality landscaping and lawn installation services. Whether you’re in LA proper, Huntington Park, Montebello, Glendale, Inglewood, or any of the other surrounding areas, we encourage you to give us a call. When in doubt, we’ll let you know whether or not you fall into our service area.
