For many of us there is something beautiful—and comforting—about a natural thick green lawn. The smell of freshly mowed grass, lying in the grass under a shade tree on a hot summer day, sitting bundled up on the lawn on a cool, crisp evening; all of these bring pleasure into our lives. Aside from providing an instant green, lush, beautiful lawn you can sink your bare toes into, there are a number of reasons to lay sod. Some compelling reasons to consider laying natural sod include the following:
Some evidence suggests lawns were
present more than 5,000 years ago in China. History tells us that the Aztecs and Mayans also had some type of lawn. Of course, you can always plant grass seeds, water and wait, water and wait…and you will likely be looking at a big patch of brown dirt for
weeks. But for those who crave instant gratification, nothing beats sod.
Sod can be installed from spring through fall, and in mild climates, even in the winter. When sod is placed on properly prepared soil, with a well-aerated, slightly acidic base, it is almost guaranteed to thrive. Most people will spend one weekend preparing their soil, and a second laying the sod. Think of it—two weekends and you will be reveling in your beautiful sod lawn!
