Rolls of sod provide instant gratification . . . like a new carpet, but outside. Depending on your planning style, you can have a new lawn in as little as two weeks. You'll just need to remove weeds or an old lawn, measure the area, order your sod, then get ready for delivery day! Once delivered, the average lawn can be laid in less than a day or you can split pallet deliveries into different timeframes depending on your working style.
