“This is the third time I have used His Workmanship. What made His Workmanship catch my eye is the Christian mission. I’ve had the crew out here to do a fairly large project for a new rosebed and they’ve been very hard workers and made the job a breeze. I would definitely recommend His Workmanship for landscaping projects.” – Mark

Very prompt on time and completed work to satisfaction
The crew arrived on time, very friendly and professional, and understood what I wanted. I have more work remaining and I will hire them again to complete. I highly recommend.
Gavin and Owen were right on time and very friendly. They did all the work asked in the time requested. They did this all in the pouring rain, and never stopped. They asked questions as they went and made all adjustments requested. Great work and highly recommend.
Friendly and efficient. Did a great job from start to finish.
I would recommend this service to anyone for sure! The college students were wonderful in every way, got what I needed done in quite expediently, and when left with more time, they went on to a few other jobs I had around the yard. Superior experience all around. 🙂
Highly recommend Workmanship to help clean up your garden and flower beds! Excellent service, attitude and care for meeting your needs. Eric is extremely prompt with response and Matt along with his partner worked hard to complete an overwhelming project I couldn’t personally accomplish. The best compliment I can give is, I’ll be hiring them for return visit.
Adrian and Tanner worked hard and got everything done that I asked.
Very polite. Very professional.
His Workmanship crew was very prompt, thorough, and cooperative. Very happy with the work they did - will hire them again!
We were so pleased with the quality of the work , we have asked them back to do more work !
This is the 2nd time I have had His Workmanship crew out, and the 2nd time they did a wonderful job weeding and cutting - very happy! Very polite and very thorough. I have a larger yard than I thought! Thanks again!
The guys pulled weeds and totally cleaned out my flower bed on my patio. Very good job, and fast.
Arrived on time, communication with the crew was clear, and they accomplished everything contracted in the time expected. Will use again for next project.
This is a great little company to work with! From scheduling to the completion, all His Workmanship employees are kind, courteous and the utmost professional. I will definitely be calling on them to help with more projects. They arrived on the scheduled day and time and worked like they were working on their own homes.GREAT experience! I highly recommend His Workmanship!
We were so pleased with this company and the workers that came to our house!!! All around 5 stars!!!
Amazing team, amazing communication, and a stellar job done by all. I can’t say enough good things about working with His Workmanship. Communication with Eric was exceptional. He promptly responded to our request for quote, followed up by scheduling our job within a week, and never left us hanging or wondering about our job status. We had a team of 4 guys for 8 hours to clean up a completely overgrown and out-of-control property. The team arrived promptly, listened carefully, and did everything that was asked of them. They worked well together as a group and individually. It was hot, and we had so many bushes, trees, and shrubs that needed to be removed as well as lots of weeding and mulching. They worked steadily from 9am until 5pm, and cleaned up nicely before they left. Highly recommend this company!
This company is professional and very prompt to respond and super nice guys as well. They did a great job with weeding and edging our beds. Will be doing business with them again!
The workers arrived promptly & immediately began what I had hired them to do. They worked efficiently & cleaned up after they were done.
The guys did an excellent job and finished weeding and mulching faster than expected! Would 100% hire again. 🙂
Cleanup of last year’s garden and completion of all the new planting accomplished in one visit by two very nice people. I strongly recommend this service.

Ready to inquire about sod installation in Detroit?

Frequently Asked Questions

In general, for sod installation labor only, it costs $1.00 to $1.50 per square foot. So, for example, if you need 1,000 square feet installed, then the sod installation cost will range from $1,000 to $1,500. It should be noted that removing and disposing of the old grass, purchasing and delivering new sod, regrading the lawn and installing sprinkler heads are usually considered extras that will add on to the overall price.
When you call a local sod delivery company, you should ask them if they can provide you with freshly cut sod that very day. Some shady sod delivery services try to sell you the old sod that’s been sitting there for 5-7 days. While it’s possible sod that old can survive, if you’re paying top dollar, you’ll want freshly farmed sod that has been cut within 24 hours.
Clear the lawn of all the current grass so it’s just bare dirt. Make sure the dirt slightly slopes away from the building structure. If necessary, add a 1-2 inch layer of new dirt such as pulverized screened topsoil with peat moss mixture. Condition the soil by cultivating and tilling the new soil into your existing grade. Use a metal rake to flatten out and level the soil. A lawn roller or power roller can be used to smooth out, settle, and firm the grade before the sod is installed.
When you lay sod, make sure the rolls are lined up so that there are no gaps in-between. The sod rolls should be flush, meaning they butt right up against each other. You should stagger the rolls of sod in a brickwork pattern. This makes it much harder to see the seams and makes the installation look more professional. If the sod roll happens to be too long, then just use a utility knife to cut off the extra part.
If the sodded area is on a steep hill, you will want to use galvanized landscape staples to secure the sod rolls in the ground. Lay the sod horizontally with the long edge of the sod strip parallel to the slope. These two steps will prevent the sod from detaching from the soil and sliding down the hill, which can happen on a very rainy day.
Yes, you should use a handheld steel tamper or a lawn roller to compact and flatten the rolls of sod with the soil. If you use a sod roller, you should roll it across your lawn in a grid-like pattern. This is best practice because it pushes the grass roots into the dirt on the ground. This serves as an adhesive to help the root come into contact with the soil and remove any air pockets.
You should water the sod within 1 hour of installation and then 1-2 times per day for the first week. Aim for the morning and afternoon if possible. Water until the soil is deeply saturated but not puddling. After 2 weeks of watering, feel free to walk on and enjoy your new lawn. By that time, the roots will be securely established in the dirt.
Some advantages to sodding are: immediate results, fast root establishment, immediate erosion control, and limited weeds. The advantages to seeding are: less expensive, long term quality, and more grass options. If you’re on a tight budget, you can try seed but the better choice is sod.
You should try to get a ballpark estimate on the total cost for your sodding project. Be prepared to answer questions about the dimensions of the areas that need sod as well as the condition of the soil. Ask the sod company how long they’ve been doing it and what their process is like. Google their company name to make sure they have good reviews online.

My name is Daniel and this is my first summer helping residential homeowners through His Workmanship. I used to attend the same church as the owner so that is how I learned about this amazing opportunity. To be honest, I really enjoy finding customers through a referral company that so clearly reflects the Christian faith in their business model. The cherry on top is that a $20 discount is offered to everyone who reads a certain passage in the Bible.

Fun facts about Lincoln Park

Long before Lincoln Park was incorporated as a city, an area along the Ecorse River was the site of a pivotal meeting during Pontiac’s Rebellion. On April 27, 1763, a council of several American Indian tribes from the Detroit region listened to a speech from the Ottawa leader Pontiac. Hispanics/Latinos make up about 15% of Lincoln Park residents. The city hosted its first Cinco de Mayo celebration in 2015. Many Hispanic businesses have opened along Dix Highway and Fort Street.
