Sod Installation Services in Eagan, Minnesota & the Twin Cities Area

The Key to an Instantly Beautiful Yard

Whether you have a new, yet-to-be-landscaped home or a slowly withering yard with bare patches and unhealthy grass, sod installation may be the quick, cost-effective solution you're looking for. It's the simplest way to get a lush, beautiful lawn, practically overnight.
Your turf is grown by professional farmers, and when we install it in your yard, the grass is already dense and mature. It takes about three weeks for the sod to get fully established, but in the meantime, it's protecting your soil to help with drainage and prevent erosion. After those short weeks, your new lawn is fully usable.

At 3 Bears Landscaping, our sod installation services are backed by Papa's Guarantee. If you're not thrilled with your results, we'll make it right. It's one of the many steps we take to ensure our clients are happy with our work. As a family-owned local business, we take pride in this community, and we love the opportunity to get to know our neighbors through beautiful landscaping.

Because we use a hand tiller to install turf, we work on small to medium-sized yards that require two or three pallets. If your space is too big for our sod capabilities, we'll let you know.

It's easy to schedule your first consultation, and we're always here to answer your questions.

The Benefits of Sod Installation Over Seeding

Seeding your yard is also an option, but it takes time and comes with some hassles. Though sod is more expensive than seeding up front, it could save you money in the long run. There are a lot of benefits to sod installation, especially when compared to seeding:

  • After seeding, it could be one or two years before the lawn looks the way you want it to look. Sod is fresh and green the day you install it, and after a month you'll forget you didn't grow it yourself.
  • Because you could damage the fragile seeds, you can't walk on or otherwise use your seeded yard for two or three months. With sod, your yard is fully usable after about three weeks.
  • Seeds take up to three weeks to germinate, during which time they require water numerous times per day. Sod doesn't require as much water to get established, which saves you money on your water bill.
  • Wind or heavy rain could displace some seeds, leaving you with bare patches in your yard you won't notice until the rest of the grass starts to come up. At that point, you'll have to reseed those areas.
  • Some seeds may not grow, leaving you with less dense grass in certain areas.

If you're ready to replace your dusty yard with the lush grass that increases curb appeal, controls erosion, increases your home value, and gives you more opportunities to actually enjoy the outdoor space you have, fill out our contact form and learn more about sod installation.

  • Let’s Talk

    Fill out the form here on the website! It only takes a couple of minutes. You'll receive an email with instructions on how to schedule your phone call at a time that works for you. This is a 15-minute conversation to discuss your vision for your landscaping, and it's an opportunity for us both to decide if we're the right fit for your project.

  • Landscape Vision Consultation

    Within 48 hours of your introductory call, we'll reach out to schedule your full consultation. Maintenance plans are customizable according to your property and your needs, and we can often come to an agreement before the call is over. For installation projects, we'll discuss your preferences and budget and set up a time for an in-person consultation ($60).

  • Design Phase

    After the consultation, you'll complete a Customer Questionnaire to give us even more guidance and insight into planning your project. The design fee is $895 (minus your consultation fee), plus $500 if you'd like a 3-D design. You'll be able to review your design presentation on Zoom, and our fee includes two revisions, so you can further customize it to your preferences. Together, we'll decide on materials and set up your installation in phases, if required. From there, we'll prepare an estimate.

  • Sign the Agreement

    When you love your design, you'll sign the work agreement and pay 50 percent of the project cost upfront. For installations we'll prepare your materials and crew, and we can usually start work within eight to twelve weeks. For maintenance service, we’ll get you right on the schedule.

  • We'll Go to Work

    Your dedicated manager will be with you from start to finish. Reach out to him any time you have questions or concerns.

  • Take Your Final Walkthrough

    We want you to be thrilled with your landscaping, which is why we offer a 100 percent satisfaction guarantee. If something's wrong, we'll make it right. If you're not happy, we'll make it right. The remaining 50 percent of the project cost is due upon completion.

  • Keeping Your Landscape Happy

    So you can enjoy your landscaping for years, we'll teach you how to take care of it. You can do this yourself, or we're happy to discuss our maintenance plans with you and set up a schedule that keeps your yard looking its best.
