Sod or seed?

Asked August 16, 2017, 2:35 PM EDT

Had a sewer line replaced in April. The company is supposed to come back and grade the area, now that it has had time to settle. He said he will just be seeding. Now it''s August. If he seeds now or in a few months will it 'take'? If I were to have sod laid, will it be okay when winter comes?

This is the right time of year to seed your lawn. If you prefer you could also sod. Both will require that you provide the right amount of moisture. Here is a link to our publication on the subject giving you all the pros and cons. Then it is your decision. http://www.extension.umn.edu/garden/yard-garden/lawns/seeding-and-sodding-home-lawns/
