Sod Calgary



Kentucky bluegrass sod installation

Chinook landscaping Calgary provides sod installation in Calgary. We do everything from grading and leveling your property to spreading loam and installing beautiful kentucky blue grass. A mix of kentucky bluegrass and creeping red fescue, our sod has a rich dark blue-green color. Our golf course quality turf is the finest available. Not all sod is the same, and many are thinly cut and dry out easily when the grass is trying to get established. Before we install your turf we pressure roll your property to ensure the ground is level and to create a good base for the sod to get established. After we install your new turf we pressure roll the sod again to give you a perfectly level lawn.

Sod quality varies in Calgary

There are many sod companies in Calgary, and not all of them deliver the same grass. If you look at the root ball of some sod it will be very thin, that is because some turf farms choose to cut as little of the soil with the grass as possible. This saves them having to add more soil to their fields but it greatly reduces the quality of the sod you get. A thin root ball means the rolls of grass will dry out very quickly and it also contains fewer nutrients than a thick root ball. This means your sod will get a rough start, possibly dying out from drought or dying out from lack of nutrients. At Chinook Landscaping we guarantee our turf to be golf course quality and to have the thickest root ball available. This assures our customers that their sod will have a healthy start which will result in the finest lawns possible.

Soil/Loam installation

The value of proper site preparation and soil improvement, before any planting takes place, is that it will be easier for the grassroots to penetrate deeply and evenly. Deep roots will make the lawn more drought resistant, more efficient water and nutrient user, and denser as new grass plant shoots emerge. A dense lawn crowds out weeds and better resists insects and disease. A good lawn requires a good soil base to grow properly. It is very important to give your new sod a good start by laying a base of screened loam first. We grade and pressures roll the loam to create a smooth base for your new lawn. Before adding the loam we ensure that the sub base is free of large rocks and other material that may impede the sods ability to grow properly
