Installing and Maintaining a Sod Lawn

Installing and Maintaining a Sod Lawn
Turfgrass is one of nature’s sponges, trapping chemical and air pollutants and converting noxious gasses into clean oxygen. Sodding your lawn allows you to enjoy the beauty of a living turfgrass carpet instantly without the usual time-consuming hassles of seeding. Sod can be installed anytime the ground isn’t frozen. It offers more dependable results on hillsides and steep slopes where erosion is a problem and on high-traffic areas. Compared to spring seedings, sod gives little opportunity for weed species, especially crabgrass, to get established. For best results, sod needs to be installed and maintained properly.
