What Is Sod?
Sod is pre-planted grass that is ready to roll down on your home lawn, also referred to as turf grass. It is like putting a fresh sheet of green grass on your lawn. This process is much quicker and cleaner for servicing a lawn. Sod is held together by roots or thin materials that ensure it stays together. One of the big benefits of sod is that if you plant grass seed at your home, you cannot walk on the grass until it is finished. Sod is immediately ready to use; your beautiful lawn is ready to be walked and played on by you and your family.
Does It Take Long To Maintain Sod?

When you start a new lawn or overseed an existing lawn, it can be very time-consuming (watering, seeding, plugging your yard, waiting) and expensive (fertilizers, the cost of seed). Laying sod at your home can save you both time and money, the only maintenance your sod needs is watering. Laying sod instead of grass can save you both time and energy to enjoy your fresh green lawn quickly and allow you to enjoy a cold glass of lemonade instead of worrying about your grass seed.
