Make Your Lawn the Envy of the Neighborhood

You have dreams of a lush, green carpet of grass, but your reality is a sparse, struggling and uneven lawn. If you want the kind of lawn to make your neighbors jealous, installing sod may just be the answer to your prayers. 

Understanding Sod

While laying sod will give you the lawn you’ve always wanted without the torturous wait that comes with sowing grass seed, there are still some key factors you’ll need to understand in order to make the best choice. Different types of sod, just like different types of grass seed, will perform differently depending on the climate and conditions where your property is located. Also, each type of sod will come with its own set of care instructions. Fescue sod, for instance, will remain green throughout the year and, as a result, will require year-round maintenance. The drainage and sunlight conditions on your property will determine how well a given variety performs, so choosing the right variety is crucial to lawn success. 

Sod Planting

Unlike grass seeds which must be sown and given time to sprout, sod comes to your property in an already healthy condition. The success of planting, however, is largely dependent on proper techniques being used throughout the process. This is why it’s almost always advised for homeowners to work with an experienced landscape supply company who can help you to choose the right variety while giving you planting advice relevant to your unique needs. If you’re interested in laying sod for a lawn to make your neighbors green with envy, consult with a reputable landscape supply company to learn more about the variety and planting methods which are best suited to your needs.
