2 Ways To Get A Grassy Yard

If you have just moved into your new house and you are tired of looking at the dirt where your lawn should be, there are things that you can do that will make it better. One of those things is putting down grass. If you are going to create a nice grass lawn, there are different ways to do it. 


One thing you can do is seed your yard. If this is what you want to do, there are several ways in which you can do it. One is that you can buy the seed yourself and get a broadcast spreader. You put the seed into the spreader and walk your yard, broadcasting seed all over. There are hand spreaders that you can use if you have a small yard. If your yard is larger, you may want to get one that you can push. Those will also hold more seed, so you don't have to go back and refill it as often.

Another choice when it comes to seeding your lawn is to use hydroseeding. With this choice, you hire a landscaping company and they come out with a big pump truck. That truck is filled with seed in its own food preparation. The seed gets sprayed out onto your yard and then the grass will grow. The benefit of this is that you don't have to do anything to get your yard seeded and the food preparation around the seeds is generally colored so you can get a nice, even coverage. 


If you are more into instant gratification, grass seed may take too long for you. In that case, you may want to look at sod. Sod is a thick mat of grass that has been cut and can be placed on your yard. Farms produce the sod that landscapers use to make new yards. They grow the grass and then take a machine with a blade that goes under the grass and roots and into the dirt. They use that machine to cut the sod into strips. Those strips are then cut into more manageable mats that can be used on your yard. Because each mat has some dirt and its own roots, the grass should be able to survive until it takes root in your yard. 

If you are tired of looking at a dirt yard, then you have options. You can call a landscaper to have them come up and help you make your yard look the way you want it. For more info about the types of equipment you may need for jobs like this, visit websites like Eastlake Rent-All Inc.
