How do I choose a sod installation contractor?
 
When choosing a contractor, you should be wary of those who offer to charge you significantly less than others. Low bidders may not be licensed or insured and may often use cost-cutting techniques that can jeopardize your effort to have a  beautiful, healthy lawn.
 
How long will it take to install the new grass?
 
The new installation will take usually two days to complete.  The first day to prepare for the new sod and day two to complete the installation process.  This applies to a typical lot consisting of 5,000 to 10,000 square feet.
 
Do you warranty the grass after installation?
 
Lake Jem Farms will warranty the new turfgrass through the establishment period provided that environmental conditions are favorable, adequate irrigation systems are working properly and professional lawn maintenance programs are established.
 
What is considered the establishment period?
 
The establishment period is usually 4 to 6 weeks.  At this time the lawn should be seamless in appearance and growing at a natural rate between mowings.
 
What happens after I sign the agreement quote authorizing the sod installation?
 
Your sales representative will schedule the steps needed to prepare and complete the sod installation process.  Once the sod is delivered the install crews will arrive within hours to start the installation.
 
What should I do during the establishment process?
 
Make sure that your irrigation system is working properly and set to the recommended start times.  Have  your lawn maintenance professional start the post installation maintenance program for new turfgrass.
 
Is "after the sale" service provided?
 
Yes.  We work for long-term responsible partnership with our customers.  You will always be considered a valuable customer.  We maintain records of sales and look forward to helping you with all your future turfgrass needs.
