Bargain sod isn’t a good deal

Sponsored content Jan 01, 2016 Stoney Creek News

The landscape experts at Natural Landscaping  in Smithville, Ontario, know that bargain sod is no bargain. While the cost of sodding a large lawn may seem daunting, buying cheap sod is a false economy. That discount sod you can pick up at the hardware or big box home renovation store may be of poor quality, be riddled with weed seeds, and have been sitting on that pallet for days.

Your money is better spent on locally grown, fresh-cut sod, which is installed within 24 hours of delivery. Poor-quality sod may not root easily, and may die off and require replacement. Even if it does survive, the resulting lawn will require more watering and fertilizing to get it looking good, and still will not compare in appearance to better-quality sod. Natural Landscaping has been providing West Lincoln with high-quality sod for years. They know how to grow, cut and transport sod so that it arrives to your yard moist and fresh, ready to set down roots and give you a beautiful lawn.

There is a difference between good sod and great sod. It takes up to 18 months to properly grow sod. The right type of seed, or seed blend, for the area should be used. Most lawn grasses are Kentucky bluegrass, particularly the dwarf, vegetative varieties. Some blends add in fescues, which are more shade tolerant. The specific varieties used need to be resistant to drought, heat and disease. Fields must be seeded properly to ensure thick, uniform grass. As the seeds sprout and grow, adequate water and fertilizer need to be applied regularly. The sod must be cut under the right conditions and kept from drying out during transportation.

All of these necessary conditions require a commitment to quality from the grower and supplier. Natural Landscaping, located at 119 Golden Acres Drive in Smithville, Ontario, supplies only the freshest, highest quality sod for your lawn. Call them at 905-957-0705 to receive a no-obligation quote for your property. You can have a beautiful, mature-looking lawn that will make you proud.
