Chosen once again by the readers of Honolulu Star-Advertiser as Hawaii’s Best Lawn Installation Company for 2021, Hawaiian Turfgrass has made it easier and quicker than ever to purchase a beautiful new lawn.

With its state-of-the-art website at hawaiianturfgrass.com, the Mililani company provides comprehensive information about each of its grass varieties, with data-packed videos, charts and articles. “Our website has all the tools you need to make a properly informed decision about the best grass for your lawn,” says Sean Aukanaii Fong, founder and president of Hawaiian Turfgrass. “We’ve also included a useful area calculator that uses satellite mapping to help determine your lawn’s square footage. It takes guesswork out of the calculation, and you don’t have to go outside with a tape measure.”

It’s that simple. On their friendly, easy-to-navigate website, you’ll find everything you need to research and select your turfgrass from the comfort of your own home.

TURNKEY SERVICES OR DIY?

For homeowners who prefer to let professionals handle the job, Hawaiian Turfgrass offers complete turnkey lawn services — site prep, irrigation, delivery and installation — that can be arranged with a quick phone call.

The company is even offering a sweet $500 installation discount for customers who order a new lawn (minimum 400 square feet) by Nov. 30.

But homeowners who want to do their own installation can arrange pickup or delivery on the website. Then, they’ll want to set the stage for a healthy, beautiful lawn. Here are a few tips:

PREPARING FOR INSTALLATION

First, remove the old lawn and all weeds, either organically or with herbicides. Rake and remove roots and plant material, loosen and till the soil, and rake until the surface is level.

Next, spread an inch of high-quality compost across the area, to create a healthy surface with lots of nutrients. Use a drum roller to remove divots.

After installing the new sod, go over it with the drum roller to help the sod make contact with the compost beneath it.

“Water it two or three times a day for three weeks, then go to the appropriate schedule for the new grass,” says Fong. “These steps can help ensure a lawn that thrives!”

Hawaiian Turfgrass proudly offers a variety of gorgeous grasses, including Captiva St. Augustine, Seastar Seashore Paspalum, Zeon Zoysia and popular El Toro Zoysia.
