There are many reasons why sod grass may be a better option for your lawn than traditional grass seed.
Sod has an immediate visual impact which you are able to see immediately after laying it on your lawn. Grass seed however, can take a long time to grow. If you are looking for an immediate visual change in your lawn and landscaping then sod grass is for you!
Sod is able to cover 100% of your lawn. When growing grass, you are usually faced with some spotty areas where the grass did not grow due to seed moving around and other factors. Sod ensures that your lawn is even and green all over.
3. More cost-effective
Sod does have a higher up-front cost than grass seed alone, but when you add in the additional costs for grass seed such as fertilizers, chemical treatments, and watering, it comes up to be cheaper in the long run.
You can install sod year-round, even when the ground is frozen. Grass seed is best planted in late fall and possibly spring. Sod allows you to spruce up your lawn and landscaping whenever you feel is the best time for your family or business.
5. Best value
Sod has the highest seed quality available, ensuring you get what you pay for. Grass seeds can be variable due to germination rates, weed and foreign matter, and unknown or unspecified varieties.
6. Less watering
Sod only requires initial watering and then light watering for a shorter amount of time after that. Grass seed requires more watering. It also requires longer periods of watering which can be more costly.
7. Less weeds
Sod requires minimal if any chemical control for weeds. Grass seed required multiple treatment for weeds. No one wants to be out spraying chemicals and pulling weeds, this is one thing that makes sod grass so great!
8. Handles rain better
Sod can handle heavy rains and runoff, grass seed cannot. With heavy rain grass seed will run off with the water thus leaving you with spots of no grass.
9. Immediate use
Sod can handle light foot traffic immediately and heavy traffic within 2-3 weeks. You need to wait 2-4 months to have light traffic with grass seed and up to a year before any heavy traffic.
10. Increase property value
Immediately increases the market value of your property by 5% to 10%.
