We would like to thank everyone for their patience as we have been really backed up over the last few weeks. Although we still have a short waiting list for pick ups, we were able to accommodate most customers from last week. Please note....every piece of grass is cut to order, so rarely do we have "extra" available.
Although we don't usually offer in house installation, we work closely with several top landscapers in the area. Visit our contact page for a complete list.

We are now at the time that your newly purchased turf needs to b laid as soon as possible and begin watering right away. If you have just purchased, or have an order on the way, once the sod is laid, it will need to be watered every day for the next two to three weeks. Watering in the morning or evening (or both) is ideal. Make sure that you are watering thoroughly and that the ground under the sod is getting wet. We do not recommend fertilizing new grass. Chances are, it has already been fertilized before it reaches your home. fertilizing existing or older grass is fine at this time. Stay away from big box store fertilizers. Even though they say "centipede" on the bag, they typically are too high in nitrogen and can cause damage over time. Instead, visit your local lawn and garden center for a more specific blend.
