Have questions? Let's get to the root of the problem:)
How is your turf priced?
Pricing is determined by the total number of square feet of lawn you order, with volume discounts. If you need help determining your square footage, see our How To Measure section. When you have determined your total square foot needed, round the total to the nearest ten square feet (1 roll = 2′ X 5′ = 10 sq.ft.) When you have your square footage, you can use this table to determine your price per square foot.
How much sod comes on a pallet?
We normally stack 64 small rolls on a pallet, totaling 640 square feet of turf per pallet, but we can add more or stack less, to customize your order. Our pallets are 4′ by 4′ square, and weigh an average of 1000 to 2000 lbs., depending on how wet the sod is from recent rain, etc.
How much time in advance do I need to order?
As with most any order, the sooner it is placed the better. Typically we require 24 hours for pickup, a 3 to 4 day notice for deliveries (up to a week when very busy). This does not mean we cannot operate on a shorter notice, but we take orders on a first come, first served basis, so we may not be able to offer your first choice of delivery time. The more notice you can give us the better your chances we can offer a delivery time of your choice. We will always be as flexible and as accommodating as possible in all scheduling.
