Which is best – sod or seed? Your call entirely.
If this is a project you would consider handling yourself, laying a good quality top dressing mix from Petrie’s Quality Topsoil and then over-seeding will help you on your way to reproducing your lush, thick green lawn from its peak last June.
While Petrie’s may supply quality top soil by the yard and deliver it by truck to your door – not literally, of course – you may be fortunate and not require too much for a select few areas. That being the case, John Wheeler and his team will, this spring for the very first time, offer a solution that will work on a much smaller scale: Their own branded super sacks containing one cubic yard of product.
With this winter being relatively mild the frost will not be too deep. While there will be moisture remaining in the ground, as the days begin to get a little warmer the not-so-deep frost begins to thaw. If you do decide to add sod to parts of your once verdant carpet, nature will co-operate; spread a layer of quality top dressing mix and then add rolls of sod on top, gently tamping into place. Because of the retained moisture beneath the surface, you will not have to water as much and before long, a revitalized lawn.
New sod will provide you with a lush, green carpet sooner and should be weed free – initially. This may be an expensive proposition, however. Premium seed will take longer to produce an optimal appearance. Prudent watering is essential; soon the seed will germinate and the moist brown patches will begin to resemble a Chia pet.
