Read below for a quick overview of available planting methods:
Planting sod is the fastest way to establish new turfgrass. Sodding also requires less extensive establishment work and care than sprigs or seed. Delivered on pallets with cut pieces, or mini rolls or on tubes with big rolls, the new turf surface will be ready for use in just a few short days after establishment and water in.
For vegetatively grown warm season products such as bermuda and zoysia, sprigs are a less expensive alternative to sod where shredded vegetative material is spread across the ground and established in a few months time depending on the variety and type of grass. Most improved warm season grass cultivars are hybrids not able to produce viable seed, so sprigging is the least costly method to establish a new surface if you have the time and ability to manage a grow-in.
When available, seeding is the least costly option for establishing new turfgrass. Most warm season cultivars are not available in seed form due to low viability or hybridization. In months to a year, depending on grass type, the new surface will be established and ready for use. Seeds often come in blends, so be sure to review the label to understand the cultivars in the blend and their benefits.
