Once clients decide that they want a lawn, one of the most common questions we’re asked is whether they should seed or sod? While both methods have their advantages and drawbacks, the primary difference between seeding and sodding is the amount of time it takes to develop a mature grass strand.

Clients that pick sod are usually looking for continued accessibility to the area as well as instant gratification because sodded lawn can be laid at any time during the growing season.

If you’re interested in sodding but are unsure about how to go about getting a perfect looking lawn, we have formulated a Beginner’s Guide to sodding to help you do just that.

How to Achieve a Perfect Lawn with Sod:

  1. Get it right the first time: Sodding is usually expensive and labor intensive. If sodding is the best option for you, hire experts to ensure you get it right the first time as they will ensure that a quality job is done, and done correctly.
  2. Don’t cut corners: A perfect looking lawn doesn’t come cheap and requires the investment of time and money. You also need to ensure that you’re using the right materials. If you try to reduce cost and use poor quality materials, you will be left with an outcome that far less desirable and miles away from satisfactory.
  3. Be prepared: Preparation plays a crucial role in the success of a sodding project. Base preparation is key. Ensure that you have good soil, proper leveling, and quality sod.
