Sodding.com - Quality Sodding Information from Seedland.com!
Sod lawns are a large part of the grass lawn industry in America.  The selection of creating a lawn from sod is that you almost instantly have a growing green area where nothing was the day before.  Sod lawns are planted by seed or other vegetative methods at commercial farms, and grown generally for one to three years to create your new instant lawn.

A New Sod Installation

If you want a nearly instant lawn and cost is no object, then sodding your lawn is the way to go. Good quality turf sod can form an established lawn in 3-8 weeks that can provide a long lasting and pleasurable lawn.

Grass sods are available for most all cool and warm season grasses. Sodding is many time described as being like installing a new carpet, with the exception that your new lawn will need to be tenderly cared for until it re-establishes itself in your soil.

The majority of sod grown today is harvested by expensive sod harvesting machines that cut the sod either into small squares (2 ft. x 3ft., 1x2, 1.5x3, etc) or into rolls that can be 2 to 5 foot wide and of different lengths (usually 10-30 feet).  Probably over 2/3 of all lawns sodded today are installed by commercial grassing companies who have the equipment, experience, and manpower needed to install a lawn quickly.  That doesn't mean you can't save money by sodding your lawn yourself.  You can!

Your sod lawn should normally be installed within 24 hours of when your sod was harvested for optimum results. If you can schedule your sod needs with you supplier a week in advance, they can usually cut your order and deliver on a specific day. Sometimes it is not practical to locate freshly cut sod, but if you will examine the sod that is available, avoiding yellowing pallets, and looking for sod that was properly kept moist.. you can still successfully plant your lawn.   If you can't plant it right away, you can spread out the sod on the ground and by keeping it watered daily it will live indefinitely. Do not leave sod on pallets for generally more than 48 hours, and even then you need to both keep the palleted sod moist and shaded to survive.

Sodding is not cheap. The expense of someone else growing your lawn on their property with all of the associated expenses that are involved in producing top quality sod along with a fair profit determine sod prices. Look through Sodding.com web site and familiarize yourself with the basic sodding principals of establishing a quality lawn from sod.
