Less Irrigation


Once installed, sod requires less maintenance than grass seed. Sod needs regular irrigation to keep it moist until it becomes firmly established, but the sod typically won’t dry out as fast as a grass-seeded area. A seeded lawn sometimes needs four or more watering sessions per day to keep the ground moist, depending on the weather conditions. Sod usually only needs to be watered twice daily. The less frequent irrigation saves on water and reduces your workload in caring for the new grass.


Faster Use


Because the grass is already grown, a sodded yard is ready for use faster than a seeded lawn. The young grass blades that emerge from seeds are delicate and susceptible to damage. Walking on the lawn and using it for regular activities like playing or entertaining may result in trampled or dead grass. Sod has a head start in growth. The roots usually become established in the lawn in two to four weeks. While light activity is still best in the first four to six weeks, sod is generally ready for use sooner than a seeded lawn.


Soil Protection


Grass seeds rest on top of the soil, leaving them susceptible to the wind. Until the seeds germinate and widespread grass growth is established, the soil is also more likely to blow away. Because sod is a thick mat of established grass, it covers the soil completely, keeping it in place. The covered soil also means you’ll carry less dirt and mud into the house when walking across the lawn.

The installation of sod is a popular way to establish a new lawn. When installed correctly on properly amended soil, in the appropriate sunlight conditions and where correct maintenance is provided, a sod lawn can be a valuable part of your landscape.

Instant Lawn


Sod turns a bare patch of ground into a grass-covered lawn as soon as you finish installing it. You get the instant satisfaction of having a green yard. A seeded lawn requires several weeks before the grass grows in. The area looks patchy as the grass first starts to grow. A seed-planted lawn is often covered with straw or similar materials to protect the seeds, leaving the yard looking unattractive. If you don’t have the patience to wait for a dense lawn grown from seed, sod is a faster alternative.
