As a landscaping contractor, we get asked a lot about the best way to get a green, lush lawn. For many homeowners looking for the fastest, easiest way to get grass, the question boils down to hydroseed versus sod. While there is no clear-cut winner, they both have their advantages and disadvantages. In fact, both methods require essentially the same property preparation, including tilling to loosen and prepare the soil, debris removal, and leveling to provide an even, uniform surface for the new grass.
If you’re a homeowner currently wrestling with the question of hydroseed vs. sod, it’s important that you carefully consider all your options and base your decision not just on speed and ease for getting a green lawn, but what will work best for your property, environment, and budget.
