The benefits of sodding are many when it comes to having an instant thick, luxurious yard. Planting a seeded or sprigged yard can take up to 18 months before it’s ready for use, meaning your lawn could look dull and neglected. On the other hand, sodding is much faster – typically only two weeks! You’ll be able to fully use your outdoor space while also adding an attractive aesthetic touch to your property in no time.
Sod requires less water.
Installing sod requires less irrigation than other alternatives, making it an ideal choice for any landscaping project. Planting new sod can be a lot of work, especially if you’re watering twice a day for the first couple weeks. Seeding your lawn may require up to four or more waterings each day to keep it moist and promote seed germination — an effort that’s both stressful and expensive.
Sod makes your yard fuller and denser.
Sodding creates a luxuriously thick and even lawn, with pieces of sod woven together seamlessly. Unlike reseeding bare spots in your yard, sodding requires no additional labor to obtain an immaculate-looking green space.
Sod prevents soil erosion.
Sod helps control dust, mud, and erosion upon installation. It’s also an excellent dirt filter from your home – far more effective than any other method! With sodded grass, you can substitute tedious maintenance tasks with superb comfort, knowing it will take care of itself.
On a scorching summer day, grass can be up to 30 degrees cooler than asphalt or rock and 15 degrees cooler than barren soil. In the height of summertime heat, eight houses with front lawns have an equivalent cooling effect to 70 tons of air conditioning! Additionally, 2,500 square feet of green grass has enough oxygen for four people to inhale – that’s not all, though; it also absorbs carbon dioxide!
- We can create a healthier environment by decreasing the amount of greenhouse gases released into our atmosphere and absorbing carbon dioxide.
- Much cooler than rock, concrete, asphalt, and artificial turf
- Releases oxygen and cools the air
Sodding is the quickest and most straightforward way to build a lawn from scratch. Your newly sodded space will be usable within three weeks, while the average-sized garden can be installed in merely a few hours – at a reasonable price! While seeding costs less money upfront, it comes with additional expenses due to erosion control treatments, reseeds, overseeds, and excessive watering needed over time – which can take up to two or three weeks before germination occurs. And newly seeded lawns take a great deal of time and nurturing to establish into mature, healthy yards and cannot be used for months.
- Working with sod is a breeze and can be used in as little as two weeks – sometimes even less!
- Whenever the soil isn’t icy, somebody can lay down sod.
- Sod requires less water for successful establishment than seed, making it an economical and eco-friendly choice for landscaping.
- Cultivating a lawn with seed can take anywhere from 6 months to an entire year.
- Depending on the type of seed, it can take anywhere from two to three weeks before they finally sprout and start growing.
