There’s also less maintenance needed in a Phoenix sod as compared to grass seed. Sod may require regular irrigation so that it will remain moist until it has become firmly establish, but it doesn’t dry out as quickly as a grass-seeded lawn.
In fact, grass-seeded lawn may need up to four or more watering sessions a day just to keep the ground moist. On the other hand, sod needs to be watered just twice a day. This means that there’s less water needed in a sod, aside from the reduce workload needed for its maintenance.
It can protect the soil
You may not believe it, but sodding can help protect the soil. Since it is a thick mat of developed grass, sod completely covers the soil and keeps it in place. This is in sharp contrast to grass seed which rests on top of the soil and leaves the soil susceptible to the wind. Covered soil can also cause some impact in terms of cleanliness in the house, as you will likely carry less mud and dirt into the house after walking across the lawn.
Can cool down the surroundings
Phoenix sod can naturally cool the temperature because of the process called “evapotranspiration.” This is an advantage of sod that Phoenix residents should realize, especially given the humid climate in the city. On a hot day lawns will be up to 30 degrees cooler than asphalt and nearly 15 degrees cooler than soil.
Add value to a property
Lastly, sod can improve the value of your home. Clean and soft grass can provide a safe playing space for kids and pets. Adults can relax while looking at the grass in front of them.
Given these many benefits of Phoenix sod, isn’t it time that you consider one for your home?
