How do I prepare the site for sod?
It is important to have your site prepared before ordering sod:
- Clear and grade the area, removing all rocks, stumps, weeds or other debris.
- Apply and level a 3-4 inch layer of quality topsoil.
- Optional: Apply a starter fertilizer to promote strong root growth.
- Rake and pack the area to be sodded, then fill low spots to avoid depressions.
Lach Sod Farms provides an order and delivery service. Our friendly and efficient drivers arrive on site with their own forklifts to place your sod in the most convenient spot possible for your project.
If you’re prepping the site yourself, check out Reimer Soils for your soil. They also have Lach sod available for pickup.
