Farm Fresh Sod

What Is Sod?

Delivering Farm Fresh Sod Since 2007

Sod is rolls of grass that is established and readily available for planting. For easy transport and installation, sod is sectioned into strips. This type of grass is held together through roots and other materials to maintain integrity during installation and create a ready-made lawn in a few easy steps. 

Some homeowners may opt for sod instead of planting new seed because of convenience and easy maintenance. It tends to grow more evenly than new grass seed and doesn’t require as much effort to keep it looking nice.

Sod Usage

Due to sod's many pros, it is a favorite to be used in many areas. According to Wikipedia, sod is perfect for:

  • Home Lawns
  • Golf Courses
  • Sports Stadiums
  • Athletic Fields
  • Commercial Landscape

Benefits Of Sod

1. A sod lawn produces an “instant lawn”. The most popular benefit to sodding is the fact that there is no lingering wait to be able to enjoy a gorgeous green yard.  When you sod, you are getting a huge head-start to be able to use your lawn for regular activities like playing or entertaining.  A seed or sprigged yard takes a significant amount of time to grow in (typically 18 months), leaving your yard looking bare and unattractive.  Sodding is usually ready for heavy activity after two weeks, allowing it to be a fast lawn- planting option that adds immediate beauty to your home’s outdoor space.

2. Once installed, sod requires less irrigation. Newly planted sod should typically be watered twice a day for the first couple of weeks.  Seeding a lawn can require up to four or more waterings per day to maintain the ground with the necessary moisture required for proper seed germination.  This can be costly and time-consuming. 

3. Sod makes for a denser lawn. When sodding, pieces are fit tightly together to get a lush, even lawn.  There are no bare spots in a sodded yard that would require extra work, like reseeding for example.

4. Sod prevents soil erosion.  Upon sod installation, because it is already fully mature, sod controls dust, mud, and erosion.  Sodded turfgrass is a quick and excellent filter of dirt and dust from your home.
