View Full Version : Sod Install Deadline

Hi Everyone,
I recieved a call from a customer today for a lawn replacement and was just wondering when the last day/week is for installing new sod. It looks like temperatures are taking a dive from mid-70's to mid-50's within about 10 days. I can't do the install until after the long weekend (Thanksgiving in Canada) leaving me with less than a week of decent temps.

Should I just tell the customer to hold off until spring to do this work?

We put sod down in mid November last year. Temps were a bit higher than normal last year but it wasn't balmy by any means. This spring, sod looked awesome, great roots.

If they can cut the sod, you can lay it.
