At Oakley's Lawn Care we offer several options for seeding your new lawn and they include: traditional seeding, laying sod and re-seeding. Seeding your lawn is typically less expensive than laying sod and requires less work, however, a newly seeded lawn needs long-term care, and there are fewer times during the year when you can seed.
Sod requires more skill to plant, but offers several advantages over seed. It looks good immediately and a sodded lawn can be used much sooner than seeded lawns. Sod is better suited to sloping terrain where seed would be washed to low areas after the first hard rain. Sod is also less susceptible to erosion while it is becoming established and it’s harder for weeds to compete with sod. Sodding is best done in the fall or spring and should never be installed in warm, dry weather. In addition, sod should not be planted later than one month prior to the first fall frost to give it time to establish roots before cold weather sets in.
