Sod and Seeding

Whether your property is made up of a quarter acre or five acres, you want it to look great. One of the best ways to do that is to fill it with lush green grass. Nothing ruins a great landscape design faster than a lawn full of weeds, brown spots, or bald spots in your lawn. At Mark Hoerr Landscaping, we use sod and seeding to make sure your lawn continues to look healthy and vibrant year after year.

Uses of Sod and Seeding

There are many benefits and disadvantages of sod and seeding depending on your needs. Contact us today for a one-on-one consultation, and we can help you decide which option is best for you.


If you are ready to get your lawn in top shape with minimal time and energy spent, then laying sod is the best option for you. Since sod is already mature grass you don’t have to wait weeks on end for it to start growing. It takes just a couple of weeks for the roots to grab hold and it’s ready for your normal everyday use.

Just as with seeding, sod requires you spend time watering it to help it stay healthy as its roots begin to grow. However, sod requires much less watering than seeding does. It also has other benefits that seeding doesn’t, such as there are no seeds to be blown away or washed away by rain.

Benefits of Sod:

  • Quick install
  • Ready for use in just a couple weeks
  • Less time and money spent watering
  • No risk of losing seeds


Between sod and seeding, sod may seem like the most obvious choice, but that’s not necessarily true. Seeding may take more time and have a few more risks, but at Mark Hoerr Landscaping we do everything we can to avoid these risks and minimize their impact.

If you’re not in a hurry and don’t mind doing a little bit more upkeep, then seeding has several advantages over laying sod. Seeding is significantly less expensive and offers a much greater variety of grass to choose from.

Benefits of Seeding:

  • Lower costs
  • More grass options
  • Stronger root system developed initially
