sod is more expensive ,but you get a beautiful instant lawn.just water and enjoy. hydro seed and all-purpose seed are ok but they take so long to grow and you also have the problem of weed seeds growing at the same time. if you are a lawn type of person i'd go for the sod. it's far superior.

Sod would be the most expensive but you do get a lawn quickly.
Hydro would be then next most expensive.
If you seed & want to save on water, spread the seed & rake in just before winter (typically after a frost). The roots grow over winter & you should not have to water.
