Lawns from Seed
- It usually takes up to 2 years for a seed lawn to mature to fully fill in and provide a uniform cover. Plan on reseeding areas that fail to germinate evenly and over seeding in the second season.
- Physically it is much easier to spread seed than to lift and lay down sod.
- Weed control is much more difficult as you wait for your lawn to fill in. Best to plant when weeds are at a minimum such as in the fall.
- Lower initial cost. It takes more time to get an established lawn, but the costs are lower.
Lawns from Sod
- You can enjoy an instant lawn that you can walk on immediately. It will generally be well rooted in about two weeks.
- Physically much harder to haul and lay your sod lawn. If doing by hand, use 5 square foot pieces which are easier. For large areas use a tractor and bigger rolls.
- Weed control is much easier because you start with a dense weed free lawn.
- Higher initial cost, but you get your lawn right away.
Everyone wants a dense green lawn. A great looking lawn adds both curb appeal and to your home’s value. If you want the best, order your Vancouver, WA sodfrom Far West Turf Farm and Nursery.
