Is a sod lawn less work?
Yes. A professional sod lawn needs no special care because it is already a healthy, mature lawn when installed, whereas a sprigged or seeded lawn requires years of nurturing to reach maturity. After installation, just water, mow and fertilize as needed for a healthy, green carpet of grass.
Where can I use sod?
Sod can be installed practically anywhere. It's often used to stop soil erosion and water pollution on slopes where rain would wash away both seed and sprigs.
Can sod withstand heavy usage?
Certainly! Sod establishes itself quickly. In a couple of weeks, it's ready for full use.
When can I install a sod lawn?

Is sod a good investment?
Yes. It's the only way to go from bare dirt to lush, green lawn in just hours. It's relatively inexpensive to use, increases the value of your property significantly, and even more so aesthetically.
How will sod affect our environment?
Sod cools and cleans the atmosphere by reflecting the sun's heat and absorbing noises, carbon dioxide and other harmful pollutants. An average front lawn has the cooling effect of 70 tons of air conditioning.
How much fertilizer should I use?
Fertilizer will depend on climate, sod type and soil. For fertilizer and maintenance requirements, consult your sod dealer.
How often do I have to mow?
Mow often, generally removing no more than 1/3 of the grass height at a mowing. Keep your mower blade sharp. Consult your dealer for mowing recommendations for your type of lawn.
