Sod vs Seed

Congratulations you have decided on Turf grass for your new landscaping projects. So now what- do you sod or seed? This question is synonymous with the make vs the buy question.

Sod(Buying the Finished Product) To evaluate this choice you need to ask yourself what is sod? How is Sod grown? High quality sod is grass grown from seed by professional growers with proper skills and knowledge in insect, weed, and disease management. The sod is grown in the producers field and harvested when needed. It takes a professional grower 16-18 months to produce high quality sod for sale. Unfortunately not all sod is grown by professional growers with a insect, weed, and disease management program. Any professional grower will be able to provide you with their state sod inspection certificate.

Seed(Make the Finished Product) To evaluate this choice you need to ask yourself what is seed? Do I have the time/ knowledge to grow seed. Seed is a good way to put down turf grass for those on a budget. There are hundreds of different seed verities and their cultivars so it is important to find the seed for your area. Grass seed found at your local big box store is not necessary the best seed for your area. So contact a independent seed dealer for help is choosing the right seed and for help in growing it successfully.
