    Hi everyone,

    Ive broken up clay and put 3 or 4 inches of compost and tilled it in. Can I at this point think about laying sod or hydro seeding. BTW what's better sod or hydro seeding aside from time factor .

    I would use sod. You will have instant results. Laying sod isn't that hard, just make sure you stagger the joints and keep it wet for the 1st 2-3 weeks. You can start reducing water after that. Apply a fertilzer prior to sodding and rake it in. This will help the root structure develope faster.

    Good Luck
