Question

Resodding the lawn


We just removed all the dead grass and weeds from our front lawn. We are about to install new sod. What's the best preparation to prevent weeds from growing?

Resodding the lawn


Do thorough prep and hydroseed instead of sod. Hydroseeded lawn will establish faster, in your native soil, and will not be a transplant product like sod. It will cost you like a quarter of what sod will. You pick the seed mix. And nothing works better on sloping land.

You will not get instant green though.

Might have to wait a month. Guys looking like space aliens will come with spray equipment. They will spray a crust on your prepared soil and tell you to water it.

You know you have to till and prep the soil right? You cannot just plant or sod over the top.
