Sodded lawns are easy to establish and provide a solid return on your landscaping investment. While the site preparation is similar for sodding or seeding an area, the maintenance required to establish healthy lawn is lower for sod. Here are some comparisons that will help you to decide on a Gusta Sod Farms lawn.

Site Preparation - For both sodding and seeding you or your landscaper will need to:

  • Remove existing plant growth
  • Till the soil, and amend if needed, to obtain 1 inch of loose soil
  • Remove rocks, sticks and other debris
  • Rake the soil to create a smooth surface

Initial Care - Sodded lawns require less initial care than seeded lawns do.

  • Sod needs to be watered adequately to establish successfully.
  • Seeded lawns need water, additional fertilizer and overseeding to fill in thin or missed places.

Usability - Sod will tolerate traffic sooner than a seeded area.

  • Sodded lawns can usually withstand traffic within 2 weeks of installation, depending on local conditions.
  • Seeded lawns require as long as 2 years to become fully mature and established.
