Contemporary Landscape

sodding1Your sod lawn should normally be installed within 24 hours of when your sod was harvested for optimum results. If you can schedule your sod needs with you supplier a week in advance, they can usually cut your order and deliver on a specific day. Sometimes it is not practical to locate freshly cut sod, but if you will examine the sod that is available, avoiding yellowing pallets, and looking for sod that was properly kept moist.. you can still successfully plant your lawn. 

If you can't plant it right away, you can spread out the sod on the ground and by keeping it watered daily it will live indefinitely. Do not leave sod on pallets for generally more than 48 hours, and even then you need to both keep the palleted sod moist and shaded to survive.
