The Q&A Archives: To Sod or to Seed

Question: Which is better sod or seed, and when is the best time to grow grass?

Answer: The advantages of sod is that installing it gives you an instant green lawn, the grasses have extensive root systems and sod is thick enough that weeds won't be popping through for quite some time. Seeding is less expensive, and with proper care it will grow quickly into an expanse of green. Spring and fall are the best times to establish a new lawn. For either, you'll want to properly prepare the area so the grass roots will have an easy time becoming established and so the lawn will drain well after a heavy rain. Enjoy your new lawn!
