Plush, green lawns

Crimson Valley Landscaping will provide you with sod, seed, or hydroseed to create that immaculate setting. Our lawn experts will guide you through the proper lawn application for your home landscaping. Combine our professional installation with an in-ground irrigation system and our lawn maintenance service and your lawn will certainly flourish.

Our experienced landscape team will assist you in determining whether sod, seed, or hydroseed is best for your landscaping and budget. Sod will be the most upfront investment but give you the appearance of an instant lawn. Take special care though, a newly sodded lawn still must be watered properly and given time to establish in order for it to be successful. Seed and hydroseed are a less costly way to establish a lawn. The seed must be watered regularly in order for it to germinate and to keep the young seedlings nourished as they grow. It will take a seeded lawn approximately one year to become established.

Time of year

Time of year is important. Although turfgrass sod may be installed year-round as long as there is sod available. Seed and hydroseed are not recommended in the summer; spring and fall installations are best for seeding.

Water requirements

Water requirements are highest for seeded lawns. The bare soil dries out quickly. Hydroseed will require moderate to high watering, the mulch will preserve some of the moisture. Sod is the lowest of the three; sod will shade the soil and prevent it from drying out.

Weed Control

Weed Control is minimal with a sodded lawn; the need for chemical control is very low. Seed and hydroseed lawns will require multiple chemical applications to combat the weed invasions until the lawn is established.

Erosion or runoff

Heavy rains may cause washouts in the seeded lawns; this can cause spottiness or other damage. A seed lawn has no protection from erosion for several months. The mulch of a hydro-seeded lawn should help provide some protection while a sodded lawn is capable of handling heavy rains without runoff or damage.

Usability of lawn

While all lawns will require low traffic immediately after installation, a sodded lawn will give you the quickest turnaround. A sodded lawn will tolerate normal to high traffic within 2 to 3 weeks. Seed and hydroseed will tolerate low traffic for 2 to 4 months but you should refrain from normal use for a full year.

Installation costs

Seeding your lawn will be the lowest cost, hydroseed is a mid to high cost while sod will be the highest cost.
