Advantages of Sod Installation
Proper ground preparation is highly necessary when you choose to plant sod. A bare patch of ground is turned into a grass-covered lawn when you plant sod. Sod can cover your lawn immediately after you plant it. This means you will get a green yard instantly. Grass seeds take weeks to grow once you plant them in your lawn. Planting seeds can be very unattractive. This is because it is often covered with straw and other materials to protect the seeds. Sod installation will make your lawn look very attractive. It is also convenient for people who don’t have patience to wait for the growth of seeds. Unlike grass seeds sod grows very fast.
Another advantage of sod installation is that it only requires less irrigation. Maintaining a lawn with sod is very easy. Grass seed actually requires more maintenance than sod grass. Once you install sod you need to do irrigation from time to time. The good thing about sod is that it does not dry as fast a grass-seeded area. A seeded lawn needs to be watered five or more times in a single day. This can become a challenge when the weather is dry. Sod installation only requires watering twice in a day. Sod installation helps you save a lot of water. You can work less with a sod lawn because it only requires less maintenance.
You can use your sod lawn as soon as it has been installed. Sod grass grows very fast. Once you plant a seeded lawn you will have to wait for it to grow for weeks. Seed lawns have young delicate grass blades that emerge from the seeds. These grass blades are very delicate which means they can be easily damaged. Frequent walking and playing on your grass lawn will easily destroy it. Sod has roots that become established in the lawn very fast. Playing and entertaining yourself in your lawn will be quick because your sod lawn grows very fast.
Soil protection is greatly aided by sod installation. Grass seeds can be blown away by the wind because they just rest on top of the soil. This happens until the point at which the seeds germinate and become widespread. Until then the soil may also be blown away. Sod is a thick establishment of grass. All the soil is covered which means it will be kept in place. Maintaining the hygiene of your house in this case becomes very easy. Your house will not be made dirty by mud or dirt from your lawn in this case. You should hire a professional farmer to grow your sod. This gives your lawn a unique foundation and beauty.
