We Specialize In New Lawn Installation Using Seed Or Sod

Searching for new lawn installation near me?

Have you just built a new home and now want the property graded and a front and back lawn installed?  Do you have an existing lawn that has been neglected and you’re tired of looking at the patchy, brown eyesore on your property?

Are you hosting an important event at your property and you want your lawn to look great?  There is a lot to know about getting grass to properly take root and grow into a healthy, vibrant, lush green lawn.  It’s not as simple as just laying down sod or throwing out some grass seed.  There is a specific process that must be followed if you want the lawn to look amazing.

Why Do You Need A New Lawn Installed?

  • Do you need a new lawn for a new construction project?
  • Are you trying to renovate an existing lawn that is in poor shape?
  • Do you want to improve your properties appearance and curb appeal?
  • Are you embarrassed about your lawn compared to your neighbors?
  • Do you have an important event coming up and you want a beautiful lawn?

GroundSmith is a landscaping contractor based out of Lewis Center, Ohio and serving Delaware County and the surrounding area.  We specialize in new lawn installation for our residential and commercial clients using grass seed or installing new sod.  From grading your property and lawn area for proper drainage, and preparing your lawn area with proper loam soil, organizing the installation of irrigation or sprinkler systems, and spreading the grass seed or rolling out the sod we can provide you with a beautiful looking new lawn.

For our clients that care about their lawn and always want it too look it’s best we also offer regular weekly lawn care services including mowing, seasonal fertilizing, and lawn weed control.

Should You Use Seed Or Sod For Your New Lawn?

This is a question our customers who want a new lawn area often ask us!  The answer really depends on three things:

  1.  How will the new lawn area be used?
  2.  What is your overall budget?
  3.  Are you under a time constraint?

If you have kids or pets that frequently use and enjoy your lawn area then keeping them off the newly seeded area could be a problem.  If that’s the case, sod is usually a better option but installing sod is more expensive than traditional grass seed.  With a new sod lawn you’re going to have a green lawn within a day or two and an even more beautiful lawn within a week or two of the installation.

It will look like beautiful grass from day one but you’ll still see the visible lines from the sod being rolled out.  It takes a week or two for the grass to blend sufficiently so you won’t notice it.

With grass seed you’re looking at several weeks until you have a beautiful lawn and in many cases it's still not really any cheaper as you need to spend more time final grading a property for grass seed as it's a lot less forgiving than sod!

If you’re on a time constraint, let’s say you’re hosting a big party or a special event like a wedding on your property and you need it to look amazing for the big day, then sod is a much better, more predictable option.

How Our New Lawn Installation Process Works

We’ve installed dozens and dozens of new lawns for new homes and property development in Lewis Center, Ohio and we are happy to get your new lawn installed properly.

  1. We start with our initial consultation and taking accurate measurements of your property.
  2. We assess the existing soil conditions and take note of any grading or drainage issues.
  3. We can install any required drainage and handle final grading.
  4. We will bring in proper loam soil and spread as needed to ensure a uniform and level surface.
  5. We can arrange to have irrigation and sprinklers installed at the same time if you like.
  6. We then spread out your grass seed or roll out sod.
  7. The end result is a beautiful, lush green lawn!

For most average sized lawns this entire process can be completed in just 1-3 days.  For much larger residential lawns on estate properties or acreages or commercial properties the process can take longer but the end result is exactly the same.  You’re going to end up with a beautiful, lush green lawn.

If you’d like to schedule a consultation with us to discuss your new lawn installation with seed or sod we’d be happy to meet with you.  Please call 614-504-0565 or fill out our online form and we’ll get right back to you.

There is more to new lawn installation than simply throwing out some grass seed or rolling out some sod.  If you want beautiful, uniform, lush green grass, this must be done right!

Property Grading

Grading your lawn will include grading for drainage, and bringing in the necessary amount of loam soil (usually 3" to 6") and spreading it.

Irrigation

We can organize the installation of a lawn sprinkler system for your new lawn should you want to have your lawn irrigated.

Seed Or Sod Installation

Depending on which method you'd like us to do we will either spread out grass seed or roll out your sod for an instant lawn.

These prices are only ball park figures to give you a rough idea as to what you should expect for the cost of your new lawn installation.  Your particular lawn installation project may vary depending on the site, the specific materials chosen, and the overall scope of work.  If you need a firm price please request a consultation so we can view your potential project, listen to your ideas, and determine the actual scope of work required to install your lawn.  After our on-site consultation we'll be able to provide you with a firm estimate to get your new lawn installed the right way.

Groundsmith is the BEST landscaping maintenance company I have used for 6 years now. When we first moved to Westerville, I was very disappointed in every company I used. They did not show up when they promised, and then made up excuses not to return for a few weeks due to weather. But, Groundsmith arrives each time they promised or scheduled, even if it sprinkles....as long as its not a down power. They mow perfectly, and when asked, they trim the shrubs perfectly. I am very, very pleased with Groundsmith, and so glad I found them. Carol Harris, Highland Lakes, Westerville, Ohio

I had a fairly large design build landscape/hardscape project that Groundsmith did for me. It included patio and landscaping around our house, pool, and barn. We also did some fertilizing and grass "rebooting". It was amazing how much I got done with one phone call. The suggestions and pricing were sensible and easy to understand. The leadership of Groundsmith has excellent values and it shows in how they treat their customers and employees. The crew was professional, responsive, on time, and addressed any questions or concerns promptly. I consider these guys my friends and look forward to having them take care of my landscape needs for years to come. Great Work Groundsmith!

After many months of planning with my husband, I saw a landscaping truck at my neighbors house and decided to call and see if GroundSmith could help with what my husband and I were thinking about. GroundSmith is an incredible company and I am so pleased to recommend them to anyone who is in need of landscape help. They built a beautiful retainer wall for us. It was an absolute pleasure working with them from the planning stage to the completion. Their employees are VERY customer focused and professional! Thank you GroundSmith!!

We researched several landscaping companies and decided on Groundsmith. They did not disappoint! Todd is always very responsive, and the crew spent 8 hours in the hot sun doing summer cleanup after we moved in. Because of their hard work and reasonable pricing, we will be making Groundsmith our go-to for all landscaping maintenance and seasonal cleanup.
