Want a beautiful, healthy lawn in less time and less work than seeding your lawn? Homeowners love our high quality, affordable sod products. You probably have questions, but that’s perfectly understandable, and we have answers.
Is a sod lawn less work than a seeded lawn?
Yes! Sod is healthy and mature at the time of installation and requires very little maintenance. Sprigging or seeding your lawn requires years of nurturing where as sod needs little-to-no special care.
Where can I use sod?
Sod can be installed practically anywhere, even where seeding is impossible. Sod is often used to stop soil erosion and water pollution on slopes where rain would wash away both seed and soil.
Sod is available in a variety of grass blends to suit various needs such as climate, hillside, sun, and shade conditions. Please refer to our Sod Varieties page for more information about our grass types.
Can sod withstand heavy traffic?
Certainly! Sod roots establish in two-to-three weeks. It creates the perfect surface for lawn games, family outdoor living, golf courses, athletic fields, and parks.
What time of year can I install a sod lawn?
Sod has revolutionized the lawn business! Now you can install a sod lawn anytime during the year when the ground can be tilled. There is no need to wait for the “right” season to put in your lawn.
Is sod a good investment?
Yes! Green Prairie Sod is the only way to transform from bare soil to a lush, green lawn in just hours. Our product is relatively inexpensive to use. In the few hours it takes to install, your property value increases significantly and even more in aesthetic value.
How will sod affect our environment?
With today’s ecological concerns, many people are considering sod for its environmental benefits.
Sod cools and cleans the atmosphere by reflecting the sun’s heat and absorbing noises, carbon dioxide, and other harmful pollutants. According to the Center for Sports Surface Research (2019), because natural grass transpires, it releases water vapor which evaporates, causing a cooling effect on natural grass areas.
Sod improves air and water quality, along with protecting soil! Turfgrass releases oxygen while absorbing carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gasses. One acre of sod produces more oxygen than one acre of rainforest!Grasses deposit carbon into soils which improves the soils productivity by increasing the air and water holing capacity of the soil. Natural grass acts as a filter to capture pollutants before they reach lakes, streams, or groundwater, balancing the ecosystem. As it grows, sod silently contributes to a healthier environment.
