It may be reasonable to think that seasons like summer and spring are best for installing sod. However, you may find it quite interesting to learn that winter is the best time for the sod to be installed.

This blog has three fundamental reasons why it’s ideal for a homeowner like yourself to install sod during the winter and how it can be highly beneficial to the coming seasons. Continue reading!
Saves Water & Your Water Bill
You see, warm-season sods such as Bermuda, Zoysia, and Centipede variations can all be installed while they’re considered to be dormant during the winter. In fact, dormant sods will require you to have to water at its root way more minor, which can save you a ton on your water bill.
Although, you’ll still need to water your new sod immediately after installation and through its dormant period to ensure that it’s still moist and healthy by spring. Overall, you’ll find it’s less time-consuming to water your sod during the winter than in the warmer months. Just be sure to keep your sod moist during dry, windy, and cold weather conditions, and it’ll be good to go!
The Elimination Of Mud & Erosion
First and foremost, if you find that you have a bare yard, you won’t want to risk erosion and mud during the winter months. So you’ll find that installing dormant sod is a better option. Doing so will help to keep your yard protected, improve the quality of your curb’s appearance, and most importantly, give you a quick, fresh lawn when spring comes around—leaving you to enjoy your finished lawn without any hassles.
No Weeds, No Problem
There is some truth that weeds will more than likely start to sprout in your new sod over through winter. This is due to the application of fertilizer not being recommended to apply until the spring season. However, the great news is the unwanted weeds won’t be around very long. Once spring arrives and you’re able to apply fertilizer, those nasty weeds will be out of your hair.
