There’s nothing that quite adds to the pride of homeownership than having the best lawn in the neighborhood.

At the same time, maintaining a big beautiful patch of grass is nowhere near as simple or as straightforward as most people make it out to be. Weeds are always trying to invade, pests ruin the color, and disease – yes, grass can become diseased – will do everything it can to undermine all of your lawn care efforts.

On top of that, it can be a bit of a challenge trying to reinvigorate a lawn that has been left to deteriorate by the previous homeowner. If you are trying to rehabilitate a lawn that is anything but picture-perfect, you may want to think about abandoning that rehab project and instead choosing to replace your old lawn with new sod.

Pay close attention to the information below and you’ll understand exactly what it takes to replace your old lawn with new sod – and how much it will cost you!

Break down your soil composition

Before you even think about resodding your lawn you’re going to want to make sure that you really understand the kind of soil composition that you are working with.
