The Sod Advantage

Sodding is the most cost effective way to a quality lawn.

Yes, sod is initially more expensive than seed. But with sod, you have a nearly instant lawn, while it takes two years to fully establish a traditional seeded lawn. Sod is much less labor-intensive in the long run: lay it down, water, and you're done. By contrast, seeding requires up to two years of labor, fertilizer, weed control, watering, etc. In just a few hours, turf can transform a barren area of dirt into a lush, attractive setting.

For homeowners, sod is the final important detail that turns a house under construction into an inviting home. For residential developers, a beautiful vibrant green lawn offers instant curb appeal. For business owners and commercial developers, sod says you’re open and ready for business. And, there’s no time out for your important athletic programs when you choose mature turf products.

Beyond appearance, there are many practical advantages to sod. Within a few weeks, sod takes root and is ready for full use. You won’t have to worry about roping off fragile, seeded areas to avoid damage or tracking dirt. And, unlike seeding, sod can be installed any time of the year.

Sod immediately protects against soil erosion, a major concern in some Northeast Ohio areas. It is a cost-effective way to control water runoff and erosion because it can absorb far more water than a seeded lawn. It is the product of choice in hilly, sloping areas.
