SOD  TURF  GRASS

Sod, also known as turf, is grass and the part of the soil beneath it, held together by roots.  Sod can come in pieces and is sold either by the piece, pallet, or rolls.  Did you know that the first recorded mention of the word turf comes before the 900s?  In Georgia, there are several different sods that do well in our climate.  Here at Bailey, we install Zoysia, Bermuda, and Fescue. Centipede and St. Augustine are also sods grown in Georgia but are harder to establish and keep in middle Georgia. Those turfs grow best in either North or South Georgia.

What is sod?

       Sod is grass and the part of the soil beneath it, held together by the roots.  What sod you need depends on shade, sun, soil, moisture, and so forth in your landscaping. In other words, each yard is unique.  

       There is always the great debate as to if you should sod or seed a lawn. Sod is instant.  You can get it in squared pieces or in rolls.  The great thing about sod is it has established roots and has been thriving for some time. Plus it's instant enjoyment.  Sod is the more expensive of the two right out of the door.

       Seed on the other hand takes time to grow.  Since it takes so long for the seed to grow, you run the risk of birds and other animals carrying it away, not to mention the rain can also wash the seed away.  It is not as much as sod from the get go, but can also be just as nice once it grows.  Let Bailey Construction & Landscape Group help you choose the best sod or seed that fits both your unique yard and budget.
