Create a Gorgeous Backyard or Lawn with Seeding or Sod!
If you want to a beautiful lawn or backyard, maintaining the grass is usually a great first step towards achieving that goal. Lush, green grass is not only appealing to the eye, but it also can cover up imperfections in your yard and maintain its appearance. Unfortunately, there are many factors that can inhibit your grass from properly growing. These factors include a lack of sunlight, poor soil, or a limited amount of water. If one of these problems is present, you may not be able to experience the grassy landscape you have been dreaming about. However, there are some solutions available to combat these obstacles and transform your yard from grassless to grassy. These solutions are seeding or sod installation.
What Are the Differences Between Seeding and Sod Installation?
Seeding is the process of planting grass seed, especially in the areas without grass. Sod, also known as turf grass, is basically grass that has already been planted. It comes in sections, which are rolled out and placed on top of existing dirt.
Both of these techniques are excellent methods for turning brown, patchy areas of your yard into dense spaces of green grass. Not only will the grass improve the look of the outside of your home, increasing its value, but it can also positively impact the environment. Grass helps capture pollutants that would otherwise affect our air quality. It can even assist animals with survival by providing them with a food source. So, between grass’s positive, environmental contributions and its influences on your property’s appearance, there is no reason not to consider sod installation or seeding.
How Can Walker’s Outdoor Landscape Help Me with My Seeding or Sod Installation?
While you may think that getting grass to grow in your yard simply boils down to which method you would prefer to use, in reality, there are many reasons to consult a professional landscaper. Every landscape is unique and has different requirements to encourage the growth of grass. If you are not aware of the differences between sod and grass seeding, you may accidentally waste money on something that is ineffective.
As each method of adding grass has its own pros and cons, our landscaping experts will be able to decide which one will fit the needs of your backyard or lawn based on the amount of sunlight, moisture availability, the layout of your lot, the amount of maintenance required, and even your budget. That way, you are not having to waste time or money on something that is not effective at growing grass.
Secondly, while laying sod or planting grass seed sounds relatively easy, that is not always the case. For example, sod can be difficult to install as the ground has to be properly prepared first. Also, if you wait too long to lay down the sod, it will not be able to thrive. In a similar manner, planting grass seed takes both time and effort to make sure the ground is adequately seeded.
With Walker’s Outdoor Landscape, we can take care of the project for you. We have plenty of experience working with both sod and grass seed, so we can do the job correctly the first time, and in less time than it would take for you to do it yourself.
