Please note that all of our sod is cut to order in an effort to provide the freshest product possible. Everything we cut, whether is one piece or multiple pallets, has to be ordered ahead of time.
As spring approaches, our schedule has already begun to fill more quickly. Please be aware, March and April is usually the most difficult time for us to fill orders and the schedule can get backed up for weeks. Pallets are more difficult to harvest this time of year due to the grass becoming more brittle during the transition (green up) period. We pride ourselves on selling a quality product. Therefore if the grass is no up to our expectation, we may suspend cutting.
Kellum Sod Farm offers delivery, just visit our pricing page for more details. For planning purposes, we typically can fill your pick up orders within a day or two. Delivery availability can range from a couple of days to several weeks depending on the time of year.
Although we don't offer in house installation, we work closely with several top landscapers in the area. Visit our contact page for a complete list.
If you have recently purchased sod or moved into a new construction home over the winter, nothing is required of you at this time. However, once the green up process begins (usually late March/early April), you will need to start a strict watering schedule. The new grass will begin trying to root in and get established and will therefore need a lot of water. Fertilizer should NOT be applied until after the grass is rooted and established.
If you already have an established yard, we always recommend waiting until after April 15th to fertilize your lawn. Now is a great time to apply any pre-emergent herbicides to help control weeds.
