Top 3 benefits of installing turf rather than seeding

Using pre-grown sod rather than seeding grass from scratch can be the cheat code you need to get a beautiful yard with minimum fuss. Let's take a look at some of its most important benefits over seeding!

  1. The hard work has already been done
  2. Young plants are fragile and prone to wilting and disease. Well-established, older plants have a better chance of survival. When you purchase from a reputable lawn and garden care company, the grass plants in your sod may already be up to a year old. They will have received all of the proper nutrients to become strong and healthy plants. This means that there is a good chance your lawn will stay bright and attractive for years to come.

  3. The payoff is instantaneous
  4. It's incredible the way that a dull, lack-luster lawn can transform suddenly by laying down sod. Even the worst-looking lawn can be prepped and transformed swiftly, and the new sod takes just a few weeks to establish.

  5. It's a "sure thing"

Seeding your lawn is a gamble. Seedlings need to be watered consistently, but the seeds can float away so that they collect and only sprout in certain places. Birds and other animals also love the taste of them! Sometimes the bag of seed will be old, or you might have purchased a type of grass that does not grow well in your area. Laying down established plants in the form of sod is almost always with the aid of a lawn and garden care company, who will know the best grass for the area.
