Sod vs Seed: Which One Should You Choose?
Sod Installation: To get great grass fast, sod is your best choice. Sod can yield a beautiful lawn quickly with very few weeds, pests, and diseases. Because sod is already completely grown, all that needs to happen is growth in the root system, which will bond your grass to your existing soil.
Lawn Seed: Before sod, there was grass seed. It’s worked for hundreds of years and is one of the most affordable options for redoing your lawn. However–it takes far longer to establish a healthy lawn, and complete success isn’t guaranteed. Grass seeds need to be planted at a very specific time, they’re very vulnerable to overwatering and heat, and they can quickly be overtaken by weeds.
Consulting with a professional lawn service is the best way to make a smart decision about your lawn’s future. If all of these factors are overwhelming, consider this major decider: what state is your lawn in right now? Is it more than 50% weeds? Is the grass quality poor? If your lawn has seen much better days, sod installation is the easiest and fastest way to recover your grass.
Sod Installation Process
Sod installation is an extensive reworking of your entire lawn. The process, however, is relatively simple!
- The prep work is the most important part prior to installing sod or seeding a lawn, which frequently gets skipped or not done properly by others. We’ll prepare your yard for sod, by removing the existing lawn/sod, rototill the ground, add topsoil, grade, and level the yard and fertilize the soil.
- We’ll then lay the sod. Though this process is faster than waiting for grass to grow from seed, it takes intense labor and planning to get the sod laid correctly.
- Sod care after installation is also a very important part. We’ll walk you through tips and tricks to care for your new lawn.
- Your new lawn isn’t quite ready yet! It will take a few weeks for roots to grow deep enough to support regular lawn traffic.
