Create An Ideal Landscape with New Sod
Homeowners around the nation are struggling to find new, interesting ways to increase property values and give neighborhoods a fresh, attractive look. What these homeowners do not realize is that the answer could be as close as the ground they walk on. It's a fact that a home with an ugly front lawn wo not sell as quickly. Many home buyers are repulsed by a sick lawn. Regardless of their individual reasons, buyers want to see a nice lawn before they sign the mortgage papers. It doesn't take long at all to lay fresh sod, especially with the help of a friend. Healthy sod should be ready for regular use within a month.

It is important to know exactly what happened to cause the previous lawn to fail. Perhaps the old sod was the wrong type of grass for the area or it didn't have adequate access to water or sunlight. There are a number of conditions that can wreak havoc on a lawn. Without the knowledge of how to choose the right grass, homeowners can easily make mistakes that endure for years to come. No grass variety is perfect for every application. Learning about the types of grass available will help you choose the right lawn sod for the job. Dense shrubs and trees can suffocate grass by creating shady conditions. A shade tolerant grass would be ideal in this instance.

Sod, like most plants, uses chlorophyll to take the energy from sunlight and convert it into glucose. Water, sunlight, and carbon dioxide are the building blocks required to keep a plant alive. If one of these essential elements is decreased or over delivered, beyond the plant's tolerance level, the plant will die. Still, you do have options that will work in your heavily shaded yard. No two yards are alike. Sod farmers know their customers need grass that can be laid in a number of different locations. To satisfy customer needs, many sod farms offer grass hybrids that fare well in specific applications. There are so many varieties to choose from, you should have no trouble finding a shade tolerant lawn sod that will set off your home's beauty.

It used to be hard to find a good lawn sod that would work well in shady conditions. Because there were so few options, many gave up on their hopes of having a healthy lawn in their heavily shaded yards, choosing to buy artificial grass instead. Now, with the help of brilliant horticulturists, sod farmers can offer a wide range of shade tolerant sods. Science and technology have, once again, prevailed. Now, you as a homeowner can create a beautiful landscape, even under large trees with shade branches. Contact your local sod farm for more information on shade tolerant sods. You could be on your way to enjoying a brand new outdoor living space in as little as one weekend.
