How to protect Sod and Seed from Wildlife

SOD
Freshly laid sod is beautiful.  The time and effort to prep the underlying soil, and then rolling out the sod gives us instant gratification of a lush green lawn.  Sure...sometimes you can see the seam lines, but you know soon enough that the grass will grow down into the land soil and provide a beautiful grass area for years to come. 

The geese and deer love fresh sod.  Its like you just rolled out a salad for them.  Deer sometimes like to dig their hooves into the soft soil. Deer have also been seen rubbing their head on new sod.

To keep the geese and deer away from your sod project, place a moving Dog Decoy from Watch Dog Goose Patrol in the area of your sod project and the wildlife will stay away.

 
SEED
Fresh seeded grass on a bare black dirt area still feels like a gamble.  You took the time to prep the soil, water it on such a routine, sprinkle the fine grass seeds, and then wait.  Time, effort, money, and more time.  Sure...you become a bit protective of that area. Your hopes are of a thick lush carpet of green grass. 

Birds, however, think maybe you are being generous.  Awww.  You are feeding the birds.  Such a nice gesture.  So the birds come and peck away at the grass seed.  Oh, and then once you get those bright green, thin, blades of grass emerging...now the geese and deer think you've grown a food plot for them. 

To stop the wildlife from ruining your sod and seed projects, place a moving Dog Decoy from Watch Dog Goose Patrol, out in the area of your project.  The movement of the Dog Decoy, will stop the deer from eating your new grass.
