Ordering Bulk Material

All our bulk material (sod, mulch, rock, soil) can be pre ordered ahead of time. As all our sod is cut fresh-to-order, we need at least 24 hours’ notice to have your sod ready for pickup. You can place your order by calling the store or come in to see us! Payment taken are credit cards, checks, or cash.

Sod Orders

Pre orders for our sod are typically done on a daily basis from Spring to Fall. Please be aware that delivery dates could be affected by weather conditions. We always take our customer’s phone number in case of the unfortunate circumstances.

Sod Calculator

Sod should not sit longer then 24 hours once cut, especially on hot days. The sod will burn and be damaged if its not installed as soon as possible after cutting it. Our pallets of sod contain 90 square yards of sod/810 square feet/60 rolls (2×6.5) of sod.

To calculate the quantity needed, use the following formula: (L) Length x (W) Width / 9 = Coverage area in square yards. Pre-Orders are only allowed in full pallets. Please use our sod calculator to figure out how much sod you will need.

Tips for Sod Pickups

If you are picking up sod at our store, you are responsible for having a vehicle capable of hauling the sod. Full pallets of sod generally weigh between 1,500 lbs.- 2,500 lbs. each but may be heavier depending on moisture and sod type. A full-size pickup truck will usually haul one pallet at a time.

Please advise our forklift operator on how you would like your vehicle to be loaded and inspect your vehicle for proper load placement before leaving the store. You are responsible for your own load and any damages that occur.

You should secure all pallets of sod with tarps, ratchet straps, etc., to keep sod secure and on your vehicle.

If you have a pickup truck with a corrugated, or ribbed, plastic bed liner, we recommend laying down a piece of plywood first to avoid damage.
