For many homeowners a lush, green lawn is something to strive for. Unfortunately, achieving that goal isn’t always so easy. Every year, a variety of environmental conditions conspire to undo your hard work and turn your lawn into a patchwork of gray and brown. If you want to replace all or part of your lawn, you have two options: seed and sod. Each have their virtues, but we’re firm believers that here in Southern California, sod is the way to go.
To ensure that it germinates and takes root in the soil, planting seed takes precise timing and care. If you miss that window of opportunity, you can wind up with an unfinished-looking lawn that becomes crowded with weeds. Sod, on the other hand, can be planted anytime during the growing season as long as you keep it watered. It’s also far less prone to weed growth, and can be planted in somewhat more unfavorable conditions than seed.
Until seed begins to sprout and spread, your yard can look like a brown, muddy mess. During this period your yard may also suffer from increased erosion due to rainfall. Sod provides you with an instant lawn that holds the soil in place and minimizes the amount of dust and dirt that gets scattered around your property.
