Sodding and Seeding

Sodding

Sod is grass that has already been planted. Also referred to as turf grass, sod is sold in sections that are grass and soil held together by roots or other materials.

Pros:

  • You will have a lawn much quicker than you would using grass seed.
  • You will be able to start mowing your lawn much sooner as the grass will be growing nice and quickly.
  • You don't have to wait for certain times of the year to install sod like you would grass seed.
  • Sod takes the root better than seed, therefore, it is much more reliable.
  • Requires much less care and maintenance on your part; you won't be spending as much time pulling weeds or watering. Sod requires much less water than seed and significantly less weeds.

Cons:

  • Using sod is more expensive than seed.
  • Some sections may not take root and you will have to replace them with new sod sections.
  • Sod is harder to install than it is to spread grass seed.

Seeding

Pros:

  • Seed is easy to spread, and only takes a few minutes to do so. 
  • Seed is the cheapest way to get a nice looking lawn.
  • Seed is better to use on yards that contain hills, are sloped, or have shaded areas.

Cons:

  • You will have to wait a lot longer to have a nice lawn. 
  • Sometimes, not all seeds germinate. Therefore, you may need to spread new seeds on multiple areas of your lawn. 
  • When you use seed, you are more likely to get weeds.
  • You may not be able to use your yard for up to two to three months after seeding.
  • You will need to water and remove weeds daily to ensure the seeds germinate and sprout.
