Stage One Sod End of Warranty Letter

As a follow-up to the letter dated June 26, 2023, please be advised the City’s hired contractor has met their contractual obligations as it relates to the care and rectification of the newly sodded areas with the project limits noted above. With the contractor now excused from the watering and maintenance of the newly sodded areas, it is now the property owner’s responsibility to continue the watering, maintenance and care of these newly sodded areas, as required.

After construction, depression settlement may occur, meaning the soil over the area that was dug up had settled. Should depression occur, rectification of the depression will happen during the project two-year maintenance period.

Please note new sod can may take up to two years to fully root and establish itself. The weather sun exposure and such can impact the establishment and health of young sod. We encourage property owners to continue periodic watering, care and maintenance of the sod going forward.

The construction is now complete, and the project has entered the maintenance phase. This means we will inspect all aspects of the work done to ensure that it meets our standards. We will also address any deficiencies. Once this phase is complete, we will add a final layer of surface asphalt. This is usually about two years from the start of maintenance.
