Sod Installation Services Offered by Cal Lawn Sod

There are a number of benefits when it comes to choosing sod installation services. For instance, you are able to choose the time you would like your sod installation to take place. Other options, such as seed you have to plant at a certain time of a certain season in order for it to grow. You also have to wait for the growing process which takes up to three years! Sod is simply more convenient and saves you much more time.


If you plan to use your lawn for play in addition to aesthetics, you should consider not planting any trees and shrubs in the center of your yard. This is because it is much harder to mow your lawn when you have trees and shrubs blocking the center.
