Ordering Sod

Measuring

When calling to order sod, first measure your area to get an accurate square footage. If you have an irregular shaped yard, try dividing it up into rectangles, triangles, or circles. Use the following formulas to get the area of each section, then add them together for the total square footage.

Square and Rectangle: Length (L) x Width (W) = Area

Triangle: Treat it like of a rectangle: L x W divided by 2 = Area

Circle: 3.14 x (radius) x (radius) = Area

Our sod is priced by the square foot. If you measured in square yards, take that number times 9 to get square feet. Ex: 100 square yards x 9 = 900 square feet.

Ordering

To place an order just call our office at 618-281-TURF (8873). From your measurements, we will figure out how many pallets or big-rolls you need, and explain your pickup and delivery options.

We also offer pickups and deliveries on Saturday mornings. Please let us know by noon on Friday for Saturday sod orders.

Tips for Sod Pickups

If you are picking up sod at our farm, you are responsible for having a vehicle capable of hauling the sod. Full pallets of sod generally weigh between 2,000 pounds and 2,500 pounds each, but may be heavier depending on moisture and sod type. A full size pickup truck will usually haul one pallet at a time.

Please advise our forklift operator on how you would like your vehicle to be loaded, and inspect your vehicle for proper load placement before leaving the farm. You are responsible for your own load.

You should secure all pallets of sod with tarps, ratchet straps, etc., to keep sod secure and on your vehicle.

If you have a pickup truck with a corrugated, or ribbed, plastic bed liner, we recommend laying down a piece of plywood first to avoid damage.
