Bulk Seed Sales
Nebraska Sod is proud to be the exclusive distributor of Plantation grass seed for the Lincoln area. Amounts as small as 50 pounds are available. Although seed prices and quality can vary widely, we sell only the finest grass seed available. Our gold label, sod-quality product is genetically superior to the seed found in hardware stores, home centers and nurseries. Less expensive seed may grow into green grass but you could end up with a lawn that's disease-prone, fast-growing or water-wasting... or all three. Plantation was developed at Rutgers University specifically to avoid these common drawbacks. To put it simply, Plantation is the good stuff.

If your situation calls for grass seed, we can drill seed your new lawn or over-seed an existing lawn. Either process is accomplished by a piece of equipment that cuts small furrows in the ground and places the grass seed at an optimal depth for germination. Packing wheels follow behind to bury the seed and firm the soil. Over-seeding is the best way to refresh a tired, old lawn by introducing new, improved grass varieties without disturbing the existing turf. If sodding is beyond your budget, this traditional form of seeding may be an appropriate alternative.
Broadcast seeding requires time, persistence, hard work and, often… re-seeding. Heavy rain can wash away your seed; a flock of birds can stop by for lunch; and sun and heat can quickly cook young seedlings. Sodding is the fastest way to a beautiful lawn, but also the most expensive method.
Hydro-seeding is a less expensive approach that’s more effective than traditional seeding in most applications. So, how does it work? Our truck-mounted Hydro-seeding unit precisely blends seed, recycled wood fibers, fertilizer, binding agents and water to form a homogeneous slurry. This mixture is then sprayed on to your lawn with a high pressure hose, much like a fire hose. The wood fibers and binding agents in the slurry attach themselves to the prepared soil and lock the seed and fiber into a network that retains moisture, sustains grass seedlings during dry spells and acts as a deflector of wind, rain and pests. A hydroseeded lawn also typically germinates more rapidly than a drill seeded lawn because of the slurry's ability to lock in the moisture. The Hydro-seeding mixture stabilizes the soil and eventually decomposes after the grass has grown to a mowable height.
