How Your Grand Rapids Yard May Benefit from New Sod

Our team offers professional sod installation services for homes in Cascade, Ada, Grand Rapids, and the surrounding communities.

If planning your outdoor living space in the wintertime doesn't seem beneficial, here are three reasons why it's actually the best time to start doing so.


1. Planning your outdoor living space takes time.

Even if you just want to focus on a small section of your outdoor living space, you should still allow for ample time to plan your design. This way, our team can help you work out all of the details.

You also need time to reflect on what did and didn't work well in the prior year. Was your outdoor space too small to properly host your gatherings? Could you benefit from an outdoor kitchen? Did certain plants grow poorly? Take some time in the winter to think about these questions and consider other factors that may affect your new outdoor living space design and installation.
