The green space on your commercial property used to look beautiful and lush, but now it’s looking bare or full of weeds! Consider doing some ground work this year and installing some new turf to brighten up your property. The question is do you use seed or sod? In this blog, we will go over the pros and cons of both and let you make the decision!
- Undoubtedly the cheaper option
- Able to develop a deep root system which may help it to last longer
- Good for large areas
- Timing is important when planting new seed, this option leaves you with two windows for planting which are late summer and early fall
- Cultivation, aeration, dethatching and adding topsoil are needed to help the seed take root
- Susceptibility to weeds
- A seed needs time to germinate and grow, allow for about 6-8 weeks for a lush lawn
- Quick Results
- Can be used for larger areas or for patch jobs
- Timing is not an issue, sod can be put down any time of year
- Sod Costs more than seed
- More labor intensive than seed
The landscaping experts at DeCarlo Landscaping Design have been helping commercial property owners keep their properties full of lush lawn for over 30 years. We have the experience needed to determine whether your property would benefit from seed or sod and to help guide you through the process of choosing what is right for your property.
Let us help you to create the healthiest, vibrant property on the block. Although seeding and sodding achieve the same goal, the timing, budget and labor requirements make these methods very different. Make sure you know what you’re getting yourself into with each process and as always, if you are unsure, ask for help from a commercial landscape expert.

Gardening Tips for Spring
Spring is here and it is time to put those green thumbs to work! Here are our top 5 spring tips that every gardener needs to put into action!
- Prune – This is a great time for you to prune! Early spring is when we suggest pruning your dormant plants such as roses, ornamental grasses and evergreen shrubs.
- Mulch – If you’re planning on using certain types of mulch, this is the time to do it. Remove all leaves and debris in the area where you’d like to mulch. This will help the mulch to do its job insulating root systems, retaining moisture and controlling weeds. Generally, we suggest a good coating of around 3 inches for the mulch.
- Fertilize – You can fertilize trees and shrubs with slow release fertilizer this time of year. Be sure to read directions properly and only apply what is recommended. Ruining your beautiful trees due to over fertilization is a costly mistake.
- Plant – Wait until after the last freeze and plant new trees and shrubs so that they get a full season of growth ahead.
- Prepare – Get your mower serviced and all garden tools sharpened and oiled. This will make sure that your tools are prepared and working at their optimal ability all season.
