Benefits of Sod

Classical looking homeSodding is a highly popular way to cover a space of land, but it’s not the only way. Alternatives include seeding grass, artificial turf, or alternative ground covers. So why do we think that sod is undoubtedly the best choice? Here are just a few hints:

  • It’s fast. We have already spent a year growing the grass, so when it gets into your hands, it’s already fully grown. With sod, your lawn can be ready for use in as little as three weeks. Seeds, on the other hand, can take two weeks just to germinate, and they cannot be used for months. They need a large investment of time and effort to nurture the lawn to health and maturity.

  • It is cost efficient. Although seeding sometimes can initially hold a lower price tag, sod is ultimately more cost efficient. Compared to sod, seeding requires much more care and resources, including water, reseeding, erosion control, etc. Over time, these costs build up to be much more maintenance expensive than sod.

  • It’s just more efficient. Cost aside, sod is simply easier to work with. Sod requires much less watering, since it’s already grown, and it automatically controls erosion as soon as it’s set down. Newly seeded grass needs lots and lots of water and erosion is commonly a problem until the grass roots are established and mature.

  • Sod can be installed any time of the year when the ground isn’t frozen. We manage the growing schedule of the seasons and etcetera so that once the grass gets to you, it’s already ready to be put in place. With seeding, you need to make sure you seed during the right growing seasons.
