Did your lawn suffer last year after a hot summer? Or did you move into a new home where the previous owners did not take care of their lawn? Many lawns across Fairfield County are dead, patchy or full of weeds. Let our teams correct your lawn problems with a sod installation. Sod will give you instant lawn success and here is why:
1.A sod lawn produces an “instant lawn.” The most popular benefit to sodding is the fact that there is no lingering wait to be able to enjoy a gorgeous green yard. When you sod, you are getting a huge head-start to be able to use your lawn for regular activities like playing or entertaining. A seeded yard takes a significant amount of time to grow in (typically 18 months), leaving your yard looking bare and unattractive. Sodding is usually ready for activity after three weeks, allowing it to be a fast lawn-planting option that adds immediate beauty to your home’s outdoor space.
2.Once installed, sod requires less irrigation. Newly planted sod should typically be watered twice a day for the first couple of weeks. Seeding a lawn can require up to four or more waterings per day to maintain the ground with the necessary moisture required for proper seed germination. This can be costly and time consuming.
3.Sod makes for a denser lawn. When sodding, pieces are fit tightly together to get a lush, even lawn. There are no bare spots in a sodded yard that would require extra work, like reseeding for example.
4.Sod prevents soil erosion. Upon sod installation, sod controls dust, mud and erosion because it is already fully mature. Sodded turfgrass is a quick and excellent filter of dirt and dust from your home.
5.Sod is grown by professional turfgrass farms, giving your lawn a strong foundation. Our sod is grown on the best soils using superior growing and maintenance techniques.
In the long run, a sod installation can save you money over time if you are re-seeding each season.
