Choosing the Right Sod
Buying sod is an investment and should not be an impulsive purchase. Choosing the right grass for your lawn will ensure your turf will afford a return on your investment. Making an informed decision will allow you a low maintenance, water thrifty, environmentally friendly lawn. The other option is a lawn that is susceptible to weed invasion, pest, disease and requires high maintenance. Listed below are the various grasses available.
S & K Sod, the brief descriptions link to in-depth detail about each of our grasses. Before you research these grasses, you may want to ask yourself the following questions:
• What do you want your lawn to look like? Grasses come in various color, blade width and length and density of growth.
• How much time and money are you willing to spend on your lawn? Grasses that require high maintenance cost more in money and time invested.
• What are your site’s growing conditions? What is your site’s soil type and fertility?
• How much sun and shade does the area get? What is the site’s climate? How will your lawn be used? Is the area to be ornamental landscaping, a play area or erosion control?
