Does anyone have any recommendations for a good company that will prepare the soil and put in sod in the Fort Mill area? Also, if anyone can clue me in on sod prices, that would be a great help, also.

A few of the people across from me used J and K Irrigation, they have a company that they work with that will prep the soil and lay the sod. I do not know the cost, Call Bobby they are in Rock Hill.

As for prices??? I put 20 or so bags of top soil and lime in my yard before the sod... the sod was purchased from Supersod in pineville and cost around $150 a pallet delivered. I put it down...

Default Sod

I used Loving Lawn Care for my sod and for some landscaping. They did a great job for a very reasonable price, and they were much more "professional" than your typical landscaping company. They left everything very clean, even powerwashed my front porch before they left - and they had done the work in the back, so it was just something they did to leave the place looking nice.

I would second the recommendation for Loving. Top notch work, very professional, very nice people.

We had a large retaining wall built by them as well as an irrigation system. They have also put in large trees for us on several occasions.

They have also done great work for several of our neighbors. Once people got wind of them as a great company, they almost went from project to project here in the neighborhood.

We are in Tega Cay.

Forgot to mention - Loving's work is also very reasonably priced.

I will definitely give Loving a call. Any advice on what type of sod might best survive this drought? We had fescue in Greenville (SC) but with the water restrictions, I don't know what would be best. Any recommendations, anyone? Someone suggested that we wait until fall to have it put in.

Zoysia. It is a warm weather grass, as opposed to fescue, which is a cool weather grass. Zoysia lawns were green here most of the summer, while the fescue withered and became weed-choked when we could no longer water.

The downside to zoysia is that sod is pretty expensive, and if it is put in as plugs it will take several years to spread to fill in. The underlying dirt also needs to be pretty smooth and even since zoysia needs to be mowed fairly short. Uneven spots will show.

Zoysia also spreads by runners, so you will have to put in hard edging on the planting beds.

If I had it to do over again, I would go with zoysia, but am not in the mood to spend the bucks to have the existing sod installed by the builder taken up and replaced.
