Sod is an excellent and almost instant solution to transform bare soil into a beautiful lawn. Normally sod installation is chosen for new properties and in cases of extreme wear (such as sport fields). However, sod can used for almost any application on any ground type.
The benefits of sod include; shorter time for rooting (about 10 days), better weed resistance, better groundwater retention, and an instant cooling effect.
The drawbacks of sod are mainly limited to cost. Sod is more expensive than seeding.
