When ordering or obtaining sod, be prepared to install it immediately
because sod is perishable. It is best to install it within two hours of
delivery. Never leave sod stacked longer than 24 hours.
to get it
Place your order with a nursery or grower about a week before you intend
to plant. You will need to calculate the square footage of your planting
area so that the supplier will know how many rolls you need.
to look for
The sod must be moist but not too wet. It should have good green color
with no yellowing areas. Sod thickness is important. The soil into which
the sod is anchored should be 3/4- to 1-inch thick.
