Construction is substantially complete.

 

The landscaping subcontractor began cutting and prepping the ground for the installation of the sod on Wednesday, September 5.  The landscape contractor will start on the on the streets located on the south side of town and work north over the next several weeks.  Due to the high temperatures in early September, the Village requested that the landscaper not place any sod. Sod installation began on September 24.

The sod restoration is completed in the following steps:

  1. Areas marked by the Village are removed with a sod cutter.
  2. The old sod is removed.
  3. Topsoil is placed.
  4. Sod is placed.

Please note that crews are working on several areas at one time, and all steps will be completed over the course of several days.

As a reminder, please mark the location of or move all sprinkler systems.  Sprinkler heads are especially vulnerable and may be impacted during the cutting of the existing sod.  The contractor will not be held responsible for any damage to property located within the Village right-of-way.

Watering the sod and establishing the root system is included in the cost of the contract.  However, we do ask for resident cooperation so the sod will flourish.  Please do not cut your new sod until the root system has been established, approximately 14 days.  Please cut new sod at a high height of three inches for the season.  This will help your new sod grow and stay healthy.
