Tall Fescue
Tall Fescue sod is a cool-season grass. It grows the best in fall and spring. It slows down when the weather warms up in the summer. Because it is a cool-season grass, it thrives in shade! It grows well in moist soil. If you’re looking for the best year-round attractive lawn, go with Tall Fescue.

This grass is truly a “bare-foot grass.” It’s texture is lush and fine, with tender blades. Because it is more tender, it needs more fertization and water. Bluegrass is fast growing which enables it to develop a good root system. It’s roots help keep it healthy during drought. This is a very popular type of sod in Edmonton.

Rough Grading by the Contractor
Rough Grading is the responsibility of the contractor. Once the grading is completed, the rough grade certificate is prepared and certified then submitted to the county for approval. If there are any deficiencies, a re-inspection must be scheduled. The homeowner does not need to worry about the first stage of rough grading. When it comes time to landscape the lot, however, the homeowner then takes full responsibility.

Final Grading by the Homeowner
Once the topsoil is placed and the grading is completed, the homeowner needs to contact an accredited Alberta Land Surveyor to provide an as-built survey (or final lot grading certificate). Once the grading passes inspection, the grading certificate is sent to the homeowner and then the homeowner is able to proceed with landscaping the property.
