Seed or sod…a fast finished turf project or the time for the seed to mature…that’s the question. Sodding is transplanting of a mature turf, while seeding is a real adventure of wits and circumstances (sometimes all stacked against getting the seed to take). While there are more grass types to choose from now than there used to be and it is (maybe) less expensive, seeding time is limited mainly to late summer and early fall and moisture is critical. (Have you noticed any rain lately?)

Lasagna Gardening

Lasagna Gardening under trees adds garden interst…keeping the added material no deeper than 4-6 inches so the tree roots can continue to get much needed oxygen.

Adding a Lasagna Garden under trees means limiting the depth of the material to prevent smothering the tree roots. Lay out the design with a garden hose and adjust to a pleasing sight.
