Why Sod Might be the Easiest Solution for a Lawn Overgrown with Weeds

Feb 16, 2017 | Lawn Care

It’s one thing when a yard requires some weed pulling, but it’s another case entirely when weeds overtake your entire yard. Hours of time spent in the heat and you might make it through only a portion of you yard. And depending on the extent of weed population, you might not have much actual grass left.

A weed is a plant that is considered undesirable, unattractive, or troublesome, especially one that grows where it is not wanted and often grows or spreads fast or takes the place of desired plants.

Starting Fresh with Sod

If your yard is past saving, installing Central Florida sod may be your best option.

The first reason to choose sod is to save time. It’s the quickest (and easiest) way to get an established lawn. While it may seem cheaper to try reseeding your lawn, that could potentially lead to things like over-seeding, over-watering and erosion; leaving you without a beautiful lawn for months.

On the other hand, if properly cared for, a new sod lawn can be used in 2-4 weeks. Sod can be laid in a relatively short amount of time and is cost-effective.

Another reason to choose sod is that it requires less water than seed to become established, saving you money, time and frustration.

Lastly, sod helps to prevent soil erosion, weeds and pests. With sod, it is grown professionally with no weeds for you to manage. More so, its density discourages weeds to grow in, hence minimizing the need for using herbicides in the future.
