Answer: Whether you seed or sod your new lawn, you'll want to do some preliminary soil preparation. Start by rototilling the area to break up the soil. Remove any debris (stones, sticks, weeds, etc.) and then rake the area smooth. Sod produces an almost instant lawn because the grass is mature with a healthy root system. After laying the sod and watering it down well, it only takes a week or two to become firmly established. Seeding takes a little longer, but the results are eventually the same - a lush, thick, healthy lawn. If you decide to seed your lawn, choose a mixture of perennial ryegrass, creeping fescues and bluegrass. This mixture contains both cool season and warm season grasses and will ensure your lawn remains green all summer and winter long. Best wishes with your new lawn!
