Installing sod is the quickest way to a healthy lawn.

The Top 3 Reasons for Installing Sod Instead of Planting Seed

Some homeowners might be considering sod installation over planting seed, and it’s a safe bet that this decision will save both time and money. But to make sure it’s the best tactic for your lawn and your budget, take a look at some of these quick facts.

1. It’s an easy weekend project. Sod can produce a beautiful lawn over a single weekend. Prepping the soil and clearing the lawn space will take some additional time, but when it comes to laying sod, the process is smooth and simple. For those of us who don’t have the time or patience that seeding requires, laying sod is a fast way to generate a healthy lawn. As long as you take precautions with the soil and give your sod a healthy start, the lawn you produce will be just as vibrant and long lasting as seeds that would eventually take root.

2. It only takes minimal preparation. While you do need to give your sod a good place to take root, the prep on soil is not time consuming or overly taxing. An influx of nutrients will be a simple diet boost for new roots to take advantage of and get off to a healthy start.

3. You’ll get immediate results. Especially in crowded neighborhoods, a bare lawn can be an eyesore. The advantage of sod is that it takes care of your lawn problems practically overnight. You can get on with your life, and start hosting friend or grilling out with family in the backyard as soon as possible.
