To seed or just sod off? That is the age old question that's plagued property owners for centuries. While both seeding and sodding can ultimately get you what you desire (lush, green grass), each method has its own pros and cons that could make one tactic more advantageous than another when it comes to your lawn. No two lawns are exactly alike, just as no two property owners are identical, so when it comes to deciding whether to seed or sod your lawn, you should take both factors into consideration.
Let us show you what we mean...
Seeding involves spreading and growing your grass from seed.
Sod involves transplanting mature turf that's been nurtured by professionals.
The sod is rolled out like a carpet over your lawn area.
No matter which option you choose, soil prep is critical. Get familiar with your soil by learning about its characteristics. The best soil for a healthy lawn is called loam soil and is made up of a balance of clay, sand and silt. Loam not only holds moisture and nutrients well, but it will also drain and allow for healthy air flow.
Soil pH is measured from 0 (very acidic) to 14 (very alkaline). Grass grows best when the soil is marginally acidic (6 or 7). It’s a good idea to get a soil test done so you know what you’re dealing with and can make a more informed decision about whether seeding or sodding is best for you.
