Can a sod lawn impact the resale value of my home?
A well-maintained lawn and landscaping can add up to 15% to your property
How does sod compare to seeded lawns when it comes to water consumption?
Sod lawns require less water than seeded lawns, thus reducing water consumption,
as well as the cost to you, once the sod is rooted and established.
Is there a particular time of the day that is best for watering?
Yes, early morning water applications are best. Cooler temperatures and
less wind provide for less evaporation and distorted sprinkler patterns.
What causes joints to seperate?
Sod has gone too long between watering and the sod slabs have shrunk.
If gaps are left between the sod will it grow in?
Gaps in the installation are not a good idea. If the gaps are wide enough
weeds will creep in faster than the sod can close the gap. Make sure to
butt (Don't stretch the sod) the pieces of sod close together during installation.
Is a sod lawn less work?
Yes, a professional sod lawn requires no special care because it is a
healthy mature lawn when installed, whereas a sprigged or seeded lawn
requires years of nurturing to reach maturity. After it's installed, just
water, mow and fertilize your sod as needed and it will remain a healthy,
requiring very little maintenance.
