“To me a lush carpet of pine needles or spongy grass is more welcome than the most luxurious Persian rug.”– Helen Keller

Your yard is looking old and ragged. Or maybe your utility company came through and left an unsightly dirt trench in your front lawn. Now is comes the question: Do you seed or sod?

Seed is best if…

  • You are on a budget. This is our cheapest option.
  • You are not in a hurry. This can take time.
  • You don’t have time to water frequently.
  • You have a large area to cover.

Sod is best if…

  • You have the budget for it, especially if it is a small space.
  • You have the time to keep well-watered for two weeks at least. Any drying out will result in dead spots.
  • You are short on time. It is instant gratification.
