  • Why is my Sod Stacked in a Pyramid when it is Delivered?
    Yes, we know! It might seem a little odd, but it is a bonus service we provide to ensure you have the freshest sod possible for your installation. When sod is harvested on the farm and stacked in a pallet, the minute it is palletized, the ends of the sod rolls on the inside of the cube slowly start to heat up. This is a slow and gradual process, but over the course of the day, and depending on temperatures, the heat within the pallet can accelerate this process. As the sod starts to heat up, the moisture composition starts to break down and when these pre-fertilized rolls heat up on in the inside, the fertilizer that was absorbed will start to break down more rapidly, creating the potential for the sod to suffer nitrogen burn, on top of drying out and perishing. Sounds incredibly painful doesn't it? With Sodfather, we know that you likely will be working on a bunch of difference things in preparation for your new lawn, heck you may not be able to get off work until 4 to install it, and that's okay! We have you covered! Once your Fresh Sod arrives, we deconstruct the pallet into neat and tidy stacks of pyramids (Which also take up less space and do not block the garage!) so that both ends of the rolls have fresh air to keep cool and ventilated. This will provide you longevity and a little extra time that you need to install the sod properly so that your not rushing and worrying if your sod is going to die! The Triple Bonus of this? We don't just drop and go like our competitors, leaving you with the burden of a pallet that you have to figure out how to return. We unload the sod and take the pallet with us! Your Covered 360 Degrees with The Sodfather Signature Stack! *** Please Note that Out of Town / Large Quantity / Short Notice Orders May Come Palletized.

Our sod is comprised of 100% Bluegrass varieties, as opposed to other common blends where the farm utilizes only an 80% blend of Bluegrass. That's 20% more Bluegrass per square foot, 20% thicker blade composition and 20% more root density, all equaling a thick soft turf that you will love to walk bare foot on!
