Why sod?

Helps Reduce Pollution

Sod traps and removes dust and dirt from the air. It also absorbs pollutants like carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and releases oxygen into the air. About 2,500 square feet of lawn produces enough oxygen to accommodate a family of four.

Protects Water Quality

Sod acts as a natural filter by absorbing harmful chemicals and pollutants as well as preventing soil particles from entering our water. Sediment is a leading cause of poor water quality.

Helps Reduce Soil Erosion

Sod provides instant soil stabilization in erosion-prone areas. Because sod is a fully mature cultivated product, it can be installed on slopes where seeding is difficult if not impossible.

Instantaneous Results

Sod provides an instant lawn which can be enjoyed immediately after installation unlike seeded lawns which may take weeks or months to establish.

Year Round Establishment

Sod, unlike grass seed, can be installed year round.

Sod Looks Luxurious and Works Lke an Investment

Landscaping with sod can instantly increase the market value of a property by as much as 15%. Using sod can enhance “curb appeal” thus resulting in a quicker sale by attracting prospective buyers sooner.
