Construction Sod

Sod for Construction

When you have new construction, planting grass seed may not be the best option. Seed takes time to sprout and grow, and in the meantime erosion could ruin your landscape. For new construction it is a good idea to use fully grown sod in place of grass seed.

Some of the areas in which you might need sod for construction include:

  • Roadsides
  • Restaurants
  • Retail stores
  • Libraries
  • Hospitals
  • Schools

You can also use sod for construction for golf courses. When you are building a new golf course or adding a small course to your existing property, you really need the general scope of the landscape to stay the same. This means you need to avoid erosion, which means grass seed is simply not a viable option. Turf suitable for golf courses can be purchased and installed as sod.
