     The sod grass vendors in our region generally require payment for the product on delivery. You may not see problems for days or months after. One of our neighbors spent $2,500 sodding his gorgeous riverfront property only to discover that the sod was full of coarse orchard grass. Cost to remedy: an extra $2,500.

     We think the best thing to do for grassy areas is to seed them. You have control over the soil preparation and seed varieties that way. We groomed our dirt and added topsoil and amendments (obtained for free) and seeded with a five-way Kentucky blue grass blend purchased on sale for a thick lawn (it took a while) that is genuinely the envy of the neighborhood. Cost was $45 or a penny a square foot out of pocket. Sod suppliers get twenty-five
cents a foot for product and the same for installation, or more, in our region.

     Owner-builder Jeff L. had estimates of $2,000 to sod his lawn and seeded successfully for $145 under a hot July sun. (“Keep plenty of water on it,” he says.) Photos of the process are included in the Lewis project album on our site. The story of his $250,000 gain on a new home and video of the seeding operation are part of our Ten Commandments of Owner-Builders How To DVD Number 4 (See our Bookstore).
