We at Drain Rain Seamless Gutters & Exterior have been serving clients in and around New Bern, Morehead City, Havelock, Swansboro, Beaufort and Jacksonville for many years. Our company has handled sod turf installation projects across the region. A large number of property owners trust only us for all their sod installation needs. The upfront cost of sod is higher than grass seed; however, these rolls or squares of pre-grown grass offer a number of benefits that largely outweigh the added expense.
Benefits of Sod InstallationsCareful ground preparation is necessary whether you opt for grass seed or sod. The primary advantages of sod are apparent right after the installation is complete. Take a look at why sod is a worthy investment to establish your lawns:
1. Instant LawnsSod turns bare patches of ground into a lush grass-covered lawn as soon as it is installed. You get the immediate satisfaction of having a beautiful green yard. In comparison, seeded lawns need several weeks before all the grass grows in. The yard spaces look patchy as the grass begins to grow. Seeded lawns are often covered with some form of mulch to protect the seeds, leaving your yard looking unattractive. Sod lawns are an excellent option for property owners that don’t have the patience to wait for dense lawns grown from seed.
2. Not Much Irrigation RequiredOnce installed, a sod lawn requires far less maintenance than standard grass seed. Sod requires regular irrigation to keep it suitably moist until all of it becomes firmly established. However, sod generally won't dry out as fast as traditional grass-seeded spaces. The latter sometimes require four watering sessions daily to keep the area moist, depending on what the weather conditions are. Sod typically needs watering twice each day; this helps reduce the workload in caring for your new lawn.
3. You Can Use The Lawn FasterBecause the sod is pre-grown, your sodded yard spaces are ready for use much faster than seeded lawns. The fresh, young grass blades that grow from the seed are very delicate and highly susceptible to damage. Walking on these spaces and using them for activities like entertaining or playing may result in dead/trampled grass. In comparison, sod has a good head-start in growth. Its roots become established in the grown in 2-4 weeks. While the recommendation is that the space be used only for light activity in the first 4-6 weeks, sod is ready for use much sooner than seeded lawns.
We procure sod from the most reliable and credible nurseries in the region and the installation work will be handled by experienced sod installers.
