HYDROSEEDING?

A new homes value increases  significantly immediately after installation of sod. 

Should I Sod or Seed?

That really depends on how much time and effort you want to put into your lawn.  Our sod is the result of up to 2 years of mowing, fertilizing, and watering whenever needed to get the sod as lush and green as it is when delivered.  Plus sod is a much better investment– increasing the value of your new home by 15-20% almost overnight, not to mention the instant gratification that comes from sod.

 

Isn’t Sod a lot of work?

It is true that sod requires an initial investment of a little work to install, but most people put together a few friends and family and make a party out of the project and in a matter of only a few hours they’re enjoying BBQ’s and a favorite beverage on their new lawn.  You can’t do that on a seeded lawn that is going to be a lot of mud and mess for the best part of the growing season!

 

Do I need to be careful where I put Sod?

Sod can be put anywhere seed can and a lot of times where seed can not be used.  Sod is  routinely used to prevent erosion of steep slopes, banks, and roadways where seed would surely wash away before being able to germinate.  Sod establishes itself in only a couple of weeks and then it is able withstand a lot of use. That is why so many athletic fields, golf courses, municipalities, business parks as well as private residences chose to use our sod.

 

When can Sod be installed?

 

Sod can be installed anytime during the year that the soil can be prepared.   Sod is installed in our area generally from mid-April through the first of December with equal success.  Seed,  however, needs time to become established enough to give the young plant energy to survive the winter.  September 15th is the deadline date that we use for seeding.

 

How long can we harvest sod before we run out of top soil?

 

Most of what appears to be soil in the roll of sod is really is a very dense mat of roots mixed with some topsoil. Because of the massive root structure of the bluegrass plant, most of which is left after the sod is harvested, as it decomposes creates humus which in turns creates more topsoil.  The result is that sod farms loose less soil than conventional farms because the soil is almost continuously under cover of grass, protecting it from wind and water erosion.

Text Box: Sod does take a little effort to install, but the instant gratification of a beautiful lawn makes it well worth the effort.

To contact us:

While it does appear that sod requires a lot of water, the truth is that sod uses about 1/2 the water to establish than seed.

Text Box: While hydro-seeding is much easier for the landscaper to install, the finished product is, by far, much less superior  in both quality and appearance.  Not to mention all the time and effort required on your part after the landscaper is finished!
