Arifzona Sod Landscape

Are you starting this year with a handful of New Year’s Resolutions that are focused on home improvement? With a new year in full effect, now’s as good a time as ever to start tackling new projects and making those much needed (yet often neglected) improvements to your home. Whether you’re planning on finally decluttering your garage, reorganizing your master closet or re-sodding your lawn don’t wait until the spring to get started!

If this new year has you looking at your yard and saying, “out with the old, in with the new” then the sod experts here at West Coast Turf have a complete home improvement project for you. Perfect for either the front or back yard, sod is an eco-friendly solution that will help you save water while also achieving a fresh new landscape that will make you stand out among the neighbors. So, what are you waiting for?

Bring your yard to life this year with these 5 sod lawn landscaping ideas:

  1. Accentuate with a Geometric Pattern – Add some design aesthetic to your yard by using pavers or tiles to create the appearance of stepping stones, winding paths or checkered patterns. This is a fun and interesting way to break up the traditional all-grass backyard while also giving the appearance of more space.
  2. Create an Interesting Shape –The placement possibilities with sod are truly only as limited as the imagination. By plotting out a new shape for your sod lawn that leaves room for other plants and landscaping decorations, you can create a unique backyard oasis that is anything but ordinary.
  3. Complement with Decorative Stones – Perfect for accentuating the desert look and feel of your yard without the complete loss of vibrancy and color. Lining the border of your sod lawn with decorative rocks, stones or bricks will accentuate the grass and make it pop.
  4. Layer for a 3-Dimensional Effect – Some yards offer space for a multi-tiered approach where you could create grass covered stairs or some small rolling hills that will make your backyard literally stand out among the rest. This layered approach also works to create the illusion of more space and balance to craft a lawn that is instantly more aesthetically appealing.
  5. Design Around an Existing Landmark – If you’re looking to do something new but don’t want to do a complete overhaul of your current yard, use the area that you already love as the focal point for the remodel. This focal point could be in the form of a backyard fire pit, barbeque, existing garden or walkway. Either way, designing around this landmark will give you something new to enjoy without losing the current accents that you’ve grown to love.

Make this the year of multi-tasking! While you begin working on your other home improvement projects to get ahead of spring cleaning, use these ideas to start visualizing the sod lawn that you want, and be sure to contact an Arizona sod professional at West Coast Turf to help you decide which type of sod is best for your lawn and when will be the best time to start.
