Sodding is the fastest and easiest way to establish a lawn. We spend years growing seed into beautiful sod so when it comes to your home, it has reached lush, dense maturity. With proper care, your newly sodded yard will be ready for use in 2-3 weeks. The average yard can be installed in a few hours at a modest cost. Although seeding initially costs less, many costs recur due to erosion, reseeding, over-seeding, and watering. Seed can take 2 to 3 weeks to germinate and years to establish. Sod is instant and ready for enjoyment.
Sod verses Seed:
- Sod is easy to work with and can be used in 2 to 4 weeks
- Sod can be installed ANYTIME the ground is not frozen
- Sod uses LESS water to establish vs. seed
- Seed can take 2 to 3 weeks to germinate, years to establish
Sod has less weeds and needs less chemicals
1.) Reduces Heat
On a hot summer day, a lawn will be 30 degrees cooler than asphalt or rock, and 15 degrees colder than bare soil. In the heat of the summer, the front lawn of a house has the same cooling effect of 70 tons of air conditioning. 2,500 square feet of grass absorbs carbon dioxide and releases enough oxygen for a family of four to breathe.
- Reduces greenhouse gases, absorbs carbon dioxide
- Much cooler than rock, concrete, asphalt and artificial turf
- Releases oxygen and cools the air
2.) Improves Value to Your Home
A nicely landscaped house will add 10% to 20% to the value of your home. Clean & soft, grass is a safe playing surface for children, kids and pets. Relax or romp, nothing beats grass for an outdoor surface.
3.) Erosion & Filtration
Because sod is fully mature the day it is installed, it immediately controls erosion. Sod can be installed on steep hills and used on slopes for stabilization. Turf-grass lawns filter dirt and dust from your environment and eliminate mud. A lawn absorbs carbon dioxide & releases oxygen keeping the air clean & fresh around your home. A lawn also filters & muffles noise.
