Peer comments on this answer (and responses from the answerer)
disagree  Tanner Pittman (X): Aussaat seems to imply something more of "sowing" the grass to me. Sod, however, is more like just plopped on there.

lawn seeding


Explanation:
Aussaat can't mean lawn establishment. That would be turfing or seeding and 3 weeks of watering.

I think this means just spreading seeds and let the gardeners take over.

I wouldn't us the word 'grass'. :o)
