  • Sod Restoration Postponement - City Wide

    Description

    Due to the hot and dry weather conditions the City of Niagara Falls is postponing all sod restoration sites until approximately mid-August (weather depending).  The lack of rain and consistent hot temperatures is expected to continue and this makes it difficult for new sod to live without constant watering.

    Any asphalt and concrete work needed in the repair area will continue (curb, sidewalk and/or driveway).  If a City tree was taken down and the stump is coming out this removal work will also continue.  Sod work is always completed last after all other needed repairs (so not to disturb the newly laid sod).  In the meantime crews will visit each site to fill in the area to make it safe.

    Once the weather cools and there is more frequent rainfall the sod restoration will continue. Each repair site will be measured.   When the sod is laid down you will receive a door hanger with tips on how to care for the sod and how to claim your $10 water rebate.  Please read these tips and remember to water the sod as often as possible or the new sod will not thrive.  Staff will take photos of the newly laid sod and record for reference.  Sod that dies due to lack of watering will not be replaced.

    Should you wish to repair the sod yourself the City will reimburse the material costs only (not labour costs).  Material includes top soil, grass seed or sod.  City staff will measure the area prior to your work. Upon completion, a receipt for the materials used or the equivalent of the City’s material costs will be used to process your reimbursement.  You will still be eligible for the water rebate which will be applied to your next water bill after you submit your receipt.

    If you have any concerns please contact the Municipal Service Centre at 905-356-1355.
