Sodding or seeding? Rocky Mountain Sod Growers Association answers your questions.
Sodding a new lawn as compared to seeding a new lawn requires less initial care because it is healthy and mature when installed. Sod grown by RMSGA members, who are experts, is comprised of top quality seed blends. Once it has been installed, you just water, mow and fertilize your lawn as needed and it will remain a healthy, green carpet of grass.
Sod may be installed practically anywhere. It is often used to stop soil erosion and on slopes where rain would wash away both seed and soil.
Sod is available in a variety of grass blends to suit various needs such as usage, sun and shade conditions, soil type and water consumption.
With proper care, newly installed sod establishes quickly. In a couple of weeks, it’s ready for full use. With today’s various blends of hardy grasses, sod is the best choice for parks, golf courses, athletic fields, residential homes and businesses/commercial sites.
