Turfgrass Sod FAQ's

We like to have a couple of days notice beforehand, but we can sometimes provide immediate service, call us at 613-656-3333 to inquire.
Check out our DIY section, or contact us for a recommended contractor near you.
We have many retail sod vendors that are likely close by, call us for locations near you.  Or you may also come to our farm, located in Kemptville to pick up.
For Grass to survive you need a few hours of direct sunlight each day, results will vary depending on the sunlight exposure. If there is moss growing there now, it is unlikely that sod will do well in the long run.

No you don't, just mark the spot with an "x" where you would like our forklift to place your bag. Most often we deliver to a spot on the driveway or just beside. Our forklifts with the soil bags are heavy so please don't ask us to travel over any area's that can be damaged. You can also leave special instructions during your online order process.
