Fort Worth Sod Installation

Get the Lush, Green Lawn You’ve Always Wanted for Your North Texas home

If not installed correctly, sod can result in inefficient water use, pools that attract mosquito larvae, drainage problems, and water waste. We won’t put down sod without premium organic soil to enrich and ensure your sod is properly fed.

At Purple Care, we use three primary types of sod that fare well in the North Texas sun:

  • Bermuda
  • St. Augustine
  • Zoysia

What you choose is a matter of personal preference, but we’ll make sure we go over pluses and minuses and what your best option might be.


How do you select the perfect turf grass for your North Texas lawn?

Location, location, location! Sunlight and Drainage play a large role in how you grass will perform long term. Sunlight is required to grow grass. Even the “shade” grasses need at least four hours of dappled sunlight to live.

The first step is to determine how much sunlight does your yard receive. Observe the area during a summer day. Estimate how many hours of sunlight does the area receive. Click on the amount of sunlight your yard receives.
