Sod vs Seed
Sod is the quickest and easist way to establish a new lawn. You can literally transform your yard within a few hours from bare soil to a full lush green lawn at a reasonable price, that will bring lasting enjoyment for years and years to come. Sod has an established root structure, already in place, therefore when you receive your sod, it's weed & disease free. Due to it's established root structure, weeds literally "can't grow" in the grass, becuase of it's tight weave root system. When seeding, at first it will be less expensive, however costs can occur with reseeding, not growing, and watering. Seeded lawns take a lot of time and nurturing to establish a mature lawn. Not only is sod an instant lawn, one of the biggest benefits of sod is our sod is hypo-allergenic, with seed, you won't have a hypo-allergenic grass. Our grass is nothing to sneeze at!

• Sod is instant
• No long growing times like seed
• Sod can be installed anytime of the year
• Sod uses a lot less water than seed

Enviromental Benefits

Sod provides many enviromental benefits, it helps cool the temperatures around your home, especially in hot summer months and even helps in cleaning the air, by releasing oxygen into it. Sod helps reduce extensive heat temperatures by natural transpirational cooling. Grass absorbs gaseous pollutants, like ozone and carbon dioxite, from the air and also traps dirt and dust. 

• Cools and cleans the air
• Releases oxygen into air
• Absorbs global warming gases
• Traps dirt and dust

Adds Value to Your Home
• Putting sod in your front yard will signifigantly add value to your home.
• Installing Sod adds signifigant curb appeal to your home or business.
• Sod could increase property value by 10% to 15%.

• Maintaining your grass will give you long term benefits.
• According to AAA article on Curb Appeal Landscaping Tips, adding grass can add tremendous curb appeal and value to your home.

Erosion & Water

  • Reduces erosion
  • Stabilizes soil
  • Helps in water run-off

Sod vs Artificial Turf
Artificial Turf is very expensive compared to real grass. Additional costs can include subgrade preparation and water drainage systems. Another hidden cost could be an irrigation system. Due to the surface temperatures in hot summer months, a sprinkler system may be needed to offset the artificial turf's rising temperatures.

Although artificial grass is considered a lower maintenance grass, it has some unique maintenance requirements. Maintenance will at the least include the following: regular rolling and sweeping, infill replenishment, cleaning and disinfecting, spraying for static, carpet repairs and drainage monitoring.

One of the biggest concerns with artificial grass is the extensive heat it produces, this is especially prevalent in our hot summer months. Due to the artificial grass extreme temperatures, it could possibly pose a health hazard. Even when water is put on the artificial grass, it only provides a short amount of cooling effect, that will only last about a maximum of 20 minutes. Research related to temperatures consistently show an increase in temperature of the air within five feet of the turf surface. Artificial turf related health issues are mainly duue to hot surface temperatures that could include burned feet, dehydration and heat exhaustion.

One of the biggest concerns regarding artificial grass is the safety of toxic materials found in artificial turf systems (such as recycled rubber and lead). Round tire rubber is used in some artificial fields to soften the base for impact. The toxic content isn't even allowed to be disposed of in landfills or in the ocean. It's hard to believe that this toxic material is used where children and adults are having immediate contact with it.

Another problem of concern with artificial grass is how sanitary is it. Because the artificial grass is not self cleaning, it may require several applications of mechanical and chemical maintenance to maintain a healthy enviroment. Wherever the artificial turf is placed, it's exposed to bodily fluids, animal waste, prime locations for harmful bacteria to grow. Bodily fluids, animal excrement and algae growth  could cr
eate prime locations for harmful bacteria growth. Because these systems are not self cleansing they require numerous mechanical and chemical maintenance applications in order to maintain a healthy, safe environment.
