Why cultivated sod?
Of course, it is always possible to seed your terrain yourself and to wait several weeks or months to get a full mature lawn. However, by using cultivated grass, you will achieve fantastic results in just a few hours! In fact, since we will deliver rolls of sod to you, all you have to do is lay them down in the next few hours to get a lawn that will be the envy of the whole neighbourhood!
Which variety to choose?
We offer you different types of sod grown in Quebec, which fulfill different needs. Hence, if the land where the sod is to by installed will have heavy foot traffic or be used as a playground, opt for a variety that is resistant to trampling. On the other hand, if you’re not a fan of weekly lawn mowing, there are slower-growing varieties available, while if you want a more natural covering, opt for a variety made up of different species such as wildflowers or clover for example.
What are the benefits of grass?
On top of to beautifying your lawn, grass offers you a multitude of benefits. Indeed, like any plant, it captures carbon dioxide and rejects oxygen, purifying the ambient air at the same time. Moreover, it helps to fix dust and various pollutants, in addition to reducing heat islands (a grassed surface can be nearly 15 degrees cooler than a concrete surface located nearby). Finally, grass retains rainwater and limits runoff and soil erosion, while providing a choice habitat for an entire insect ecosystem (ants, pollinating insects, etc.).
