Whether you are doing a landscaping project that involves new grass for your entire yard or you are just working with parts of your yard, you can save big by not using sod. You can seed the area or place grass plugs for about half the cost of sod. It will, of course, take a little bit longer to look good and require a little bit more attention to get it started. The savings, particularly in a large area, could make a big difference in the cost of the landscaping part of your project or in the landscape repair in your work area. You will, of course need to protect the seed and water it more regularly until it grows, and it will take a bit longer to look good. Unless you are in a big hurry to have a finished lawn, you will find the wait is well worth the savings.
