“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

These two young men were thorough, professional, courteous, and prompt. In addition, their fees are very reasonable! I’m looking forward to using their service again.
Communication and scheduling was easy and efficient, the young men showed up on time, were polite and completed everything I asked for
The Team did a great job raking leaves and removing weeds. They are very professional and made sure that they understood the job before starting it. They work very hard and are very gracious. I have used them numerous times and always had an excellent experience and outcome.
We cannot say enough good things about My Workmanship. Communication with Eric was clear and fantastic start to finish. The workers, Nate and Evan were prompt, courteous, hardworking and did a fantastic job. We are just thrilled and will definitely recommend this service to others. Thank you.Elizabeth and Alan FletcherMahtomedi, MN
The crew, Nick and Marco, arrived on time. They were courteous and did a really good job. Price was as advertised. Would use them again.
I would definitely hire again. The two young men worked hard to accomplish what I asked them to do.
The crew showed up early and were very kind. They worked very hard and did amazing work!! I will definitely reach out to them again. Enjoy the before and after photos!
I am pleased to relay that my experience with His Workmanship was beyond expectations. With Father's Day this coming weekend, and a couple of cookouts planned, all the planting beds on our property were in desperate need of weeding. Eric's response to my initial inquiry was within minutes and the crew showed up in under 48 hours. Matt, Scott and Rory did a fantastic job and were extremely polite and courteous. Couldn't have asked for a better result in any aspect!
A friend highly recommended His Workmanship and they didn’t disappoint. I hired two workers from 8-1 to lay edging, landscape fabric and rock. Josiah arrived at 8 but his partner didn’t make it until after 9. When I emailed Eric that only Josiah was there, Eric immediately contacted another worker to come out. By 9:30 I had three young men working on my project. They finished up early and when I went to approve it, it was beautifully done. I have more landscaping to do and will hire them again for my next project.
They came early and got to work right away. Before them I made an appointment with another landscaping company our schedule appointment was between 10-12. They called 5hr and 21min latter. No need to say anything else. I placed them on my DNR list. Where one won't do His Workmanship will! Their on my Angie's list.
The two man crew came exactly at the appointed time. They were courteous and completed my job exactly as I asked them to. Great experience!
Exceptional work! Did all that i asked and in a timely manner. Communication was spot on! Highly recommend
These two men helped clean out a lower level office and garage and did a super good job with all the heavy stuff in awkward stuff. they were able to get it all in the dumpster and also helped with smaller items as well.
The work done was excellent; the garden bed was dug up so the weeds were removed, weed control fabric was laid and then mulch. The workers were efficient and worked hard.
His Workmanship went above and beyond to meet our needs. Would recommend, and would select their service in the future!
Thank you, Emilio and Cesar! You were a pleasure to be with and you went above and beyond with kindness and hard work! You both were simply amazing.
I needed quick help to fix a Landscaping issue. I was scheduled quickly. Communication was top notch. Team arrived early and completed what I requested. Highly recommend!
The crew that came was punctual, diligent, and polite. Both were hard workers who asked me for clarification when necessary. They did a good job, and the areas being worked on look great! They went above and beyond with the task. I would welcome them back in the future.
His Workmanship did an excellent job for us. Arrived on time and finished on time! Will definitely use them for our future landscaping needs!
Very helpful staff and responded immediately to my email request. Damion and Sebastian were so wonderful and checked in to ask questions when needed. I really appreciate all the work they accommplished!

Ready to inquire about sod installation in Chicago?

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.
