1.When can I install a sod?
A. You can install sod anytime as long as you can till the ground and get the sod and the underlying soil wet to start the rooting process

2.Can it be too cold or too warm to sod?
A. In general the answer is NO. Sod can be planted when it is too cold or too warm to plant seed.

3. Is Sod a Good Investment?
A. Yes it is. You go from bare ground and a lush green lawn in hours and in those shorts hrs you increase your property value and curb appeal.

4. Should I buy sod sight unseen?
A. No. Why would you spend $100's if not $1000's for a item that might work?

5. Why does the price of sod vary?
A. Sod is like any other product in the construction and landscape business. Price is based on the care , input cost, and craftsmanship that goes into the product. The better the base and the better the results.
