A strong foundation for your grass is the key to establishing a healthy lawn from the start. We make sure that site preparation is done correctly with loam so the root system of your sod in Calgary can infiltrate deep into the ground and establish itself as a resilient lawn should, transforming your front or backyard landscaping. From there, you can grow trees and perennials in Calgary easily.
The most important factor in any landscaping project is drainage: where is the water going. We shoot elevation grades to confirm proper positive drainage patterns away from the house, thus grading the topsoil accordingly. This will avoid not only drainage issues after sod installation but also rid the sod of any bumps or dips that are often created when site grading is not done properly.
