There are many reasons why sod—patches of grass-covered soil held together by matted roots—is the preferred method for lawns and landscapes in many areas, including Nashville.
For the homeowner, sod is the finishing touch that turns a house into a warm and welcoming home. For the business owner, sod shows customers you are inviting and ready for business.
Regardless of the reason, if you are in need of lush, green grass, A&N Sod Supply, Inc. is ready to provide you with top-quality products and customer service.
Benefits of Sod
Specifically, sod has been shown to
- Establish a lawn quickly and efficiently
- Be more efficient than other methods (like grass seedlings)
- Create a denser-looking lawn
- Thrive in various growing conditions and areas
- Add value and beauty to a property
- Prevent erosion on hillsides and new construction sites
- Improve cooling by absorbing carbon dioxide and releasing oxygen
- Improve air and water quality in surrounding areas
- Help to prevent flooding in the area
Types of Sod
We offer a number of sod varieties and can personally tailor them to your needs and land to guarantee the best end product. Since Tennessee is considered the transition zone, warm and cool-season grasses may work well depending on where you live and what you’re looking for.
Some specific types of sod that thrive in the Nashville area include (but are not limited to) fescues, Bermudagrass, centipedegrass, and zoysiagrass. If you have any questions as to what sod would work best with your specific area and conditions, you can always reach out to us for help and recommendations!
How to Prepare
There are a few things to know when it comes to handling and installation to get the best out of your sod experience.
Whether laying a new lawn or resodding, the proper sod maintenance will ensure lasting results for years to come. You may want to consider watching our informational video on how to install and care for sod once it’s installed.
In the meantime, you can prepare for your sod delivery by doing the following:
- Remove sticks, stones, and other debris from the area you plan on laying sod. Additionally, clear the land of weeds and remaining grass (if there is any).
- You may want to get a sample of soil tested by either sending it to your County Extension Service or purchasing a DIY kit to ensure the sod thrives.
- To properly prepare the soil before laying our sod, you should either till or put down a layer of topsoil. If you have a large area of land that needs sod, you may want to consider investing in a power tiller.
In addition to courteous delivery and implementation, we are happy to provide you with other additional tips and advice tailored to your area and the goals you are trying to accomplish.
