What type of sod do you need?
Full Sun – Kentucky Bluegrass
Kentucky Bluegrass is a three-way blend of used in most all lawn applications, and on athletic fields, where it will receive at least six (6) hours of direct sunlight every day. This sod grows best in full-sun, with regular irrigation and maintenance. Kentucky bluegrass has a slender, “v” shaped blade appearance.
Partial Shade – Tall Fescue
Tall Fescue is our most versatile sod variety. It can be used in partially shaded areas that only receive half a day of sun or Tall Fescue can be used in full sun applications. This sod is slightly drought resistant, once established, and does not require regular fertilizer applications. Tall Fescue has a flat, broad bladed appearance.
Shade – Fine Fescue
Fine Fescue is a unique sod blend that thrives in low light situations. While the sod is grown in the full sun it can handle filtered sun installations, such as areas under trees or other vegetation. Fine Fescue has a thin, wiry bladed appearance.
Are you ready to install your sod as soon as it arrives?
Sod is a living plant that must be installed and watered immediately upon pick-up or delivery to prevent irreversible damage from occurring.
Do you have the necessary tools, supplies, and labor on hand?
Stop by our office and check out our sod related tools and supplies. We offer the same tools used by our installation crews for sale at our office. We also offer the same seed that we grow our sod with and the fertilizer that we use to feed it.
Assuming the area has already been prepared, you can generally figure on the following needs:
- Steel Rake
- Flat Spade or Sharp Knife
- Water Hose and Sprinkler
- Hand-Tamper or Lawn Roller
- Wheel Barrel and Flat Shovel for Clean-up
- Crabgrass Control
- One to ten people depending on size and scope of the project
