Why Are Most Lawns Sodded?
Is a sod lawn less work?
Yes, a professional sod lawn needs no special care because it is a healthy mature lawn when installed, whereas a sprigged or seeded lawn requires years of nurturing to reach maturity. Sod is grown under expert supervision from either top quality seed blends or certified hybrid sprigs. After it’s been installed, just water, mow and fertilize your sod lawn as needed and it will remain a healthy, green carpet of grass, requiring very little maintenance.
Where can I use sod?
Sod can be installed practically anywhere, even where seeding is impossible or too costly. Sod is often used to stop soil erosion and water pollution on slopes where rain would wash away both seed and soil.
Sod is available in a variety of grass blends to suit various needs such as climate, amount of usage, sun and shade conditions.
Can sod withstand heavy usage?
Certainly! Sod establishes itself quickly. In a couple of weeks, it’s ready for full use. It creates the perfect surface for lawn games and family outdoor living. With today’s various blends of hardy grasses, sod is chosen for parks, golf courses, athletic fields, as well as residential homes and business parks.
When can I install a sod lawn?
Sod has revolutionized the lawn business! Now you can install a sod lawn anytime during the year when the ground can be tilled. There is no need to wait for the “right” season to put in your lawn.
Is sod a good investment?
Yes — it’s the only way to go — from bare soil to lush, green lawn in just hours. Yet, it’s relatively inexpensive to use. In the few hours it takes to install your sod lawn, your property value increases significantly and even more in aesthetic value.
How will sod affect our environment?
With today’s ecological concerns, many more people are considering sod for its environmental benefits.
Sod cools and cleans the atmosphere by reflecting the sun’s heat and absorbing noises, carbon dioxide and other harmful pollutants. It releases valuable oxygen and moisture into the air we breath. As it grows, sod silently contributes to a healthier environment.
