How can I save on lawn installation?

If you need to save a few dollars on your sodding project there are a couple ways you can limit the costs:

  • Dispose of the old sod on your property. By keeping the old sod you save the cost of disposal.
  • Book your project in advance and in slower months. November, February and August are your best bets for the best discount.

Having a new lawn installed from sod is always the preferred method over seeding. If you need to absolutely save the money, you can seed your lawn area in April. This will save you a few dollars off your sod installation project and MAYBE give you a lawn area again.
