Sod Installation: Transform Your Yard With Healthy, Green Grass!

Why is sod installation superior to seeding?

Why is sod installation superior to seeding?

It is common knowledge that a well-kept lawn is important in maintaining and increasing the value of a property.

Especially for an area like the Dallas Fortworth Metroplex, curb appeal can make or break a house. For many homeowners, improving their yard means installing an expensive addition to the home like a pool or a massive front porch.

While these home improvements do increase the market value of a house, they can be costly and bothersome. Unbeknownst to many, a sod install can give an immediate transformation to a property to make it more attractive and more valuable.

Grass can transform a rundown yard into a lush and verdant garden. It makes an area look less barren and livelier. However, installing grass can be a bit of an undertaking.

At present, there are two grass installation options available – sod or seed. Arguably, sod installation service is more recommended.


Grass seeds thrive better in cool areas. For a relatively warm place like Irving, grass installation through seeding might not be the best idea.

Unlike seeding, sod is already matured grass. There is no need to worry about whether or not the hot weather would kill its chances of growing.


Sod can help mend soil erosion instantaneously. Due to its already deep root system, sod can penetrate the soil faster, allowing the roots to be fully grounded.

By establishing the deep root system into the soil, further erosion can be stopped while giving the soil a chance to rejuvenate.


With sod, it is easier to decide when the installation process would take place. Using sod is more convenient and would save a lot of time.

While the upfront payment for using sod is more expensive, it needs less water to keep it alive and verdant, which is important in warm places like Texas.


Sod installation provides a quality, natural look and feel that instantly transforms any outdoor space, providing fresh greenery that adds eye catching aesthetic to elevate your yard’s beauty.

Laying sod helps to immediately eliminate the dead areas of your lawn that seem to draw the most attention.

Frequently asked questions.

Yes, you can lay sod over existing grass. It is best to remove the existing grass first to ensure optimal growth and reduce competition from weeds and other unwanted plants. If the grass is dry, it is recommended to water it heavily before laying the sod. Make sure to even out any bumps or dips in the soil before laying down the sod. Finally, use a roller or similar tool to help ensure the sod pieces are firmly planted in place for successful establishment.

The cost of sod installation varies widely depending on the size of the area being covered, the type of sod chosen and its quality, as well as additional services such as soil preparation and grading. On average, sod runs between $5-6 per square foot, this includes material, soil test, labor and 2 post install visits.

Sod grass, also known as turf grass, is a type of grass grown on top of soil that is cut into sections. It has been pre-grown to form an even layer that can be rolled out across the ground, allowing for a faster establishment process than planting individual seeds. Popular types of sod in the Dallas Metroplex are St Augustine, Bermuda, Zoysia, and Tall fescue.

Sod is a much faster and more reliable process for establishing new grass than planting seeds, as it does not require any additional fertilizing or special care to get it to grow. Sod also covers the ground immediately, providing a cleaner and more even looking lawn. Furthermore, sod helps to reduce soil erosion, which can be a problem in areas where water runs off quickly. Finally, sod is more tolerant of wear and tear than seed-grown grass, making it perfect for areas with lots of foot traffic.

New sod needs to be watered heavily and often in the early stages. For best results, water the sod two to three times per day for about 20 minutes each time. Once the sod has been down for two weeks, reduce watering frequency to once or twice a day. After 6 weeks, you can generally switch over to your regular watering schedule.

Yes, it’s a good idea to fertilize new sod. Fertilizing the soil helps the grass to grow faster and more vigorously and establishes a stronger root system. For best results, fertilize at least twice during the first growing season. Start with a light fertilizer when you lay the sod and then apply a second round of fertilizer two weeks later.
