Q: What is the best time of year to lay sod?
That depends on what you are trying to accomplish in your yard. It is safe for the grass to be laid any time of the year, however, it will be dormant and brown in the winter months, so if you are looking for a green yard immediately, you may want to wait for the spring and summer months.

Other than sod, the only other thing we sell is top soil.

Depending on the type, around 2800-3000 pounds. The wetter it is, the heavier it will be.

During the busy season, you will need to call 3-4 days in advance for delivery. There are times in the slower seasons we can get in a delivery in a shorter time frame.

Our trucks deliver from Pensacola to Tallahassee. There is a minimum number of pallets outside Bay County, but we can usually accommodate smaller amounts by grouping deliveries in your area.
