Saw all this sod today. Turned round and went back to find (3) guys, sunbelt rental boxer and bobcat installing irrigation and no prep before laying sod. I can't believe all this sod was delivered 1st. They had laid some already right on top of what was there.:confused:I'll bet all that sod want be out in a month.:laugh:
This was a contractor and not a Landscape Contractor.
Last pic you can see what they are laying it over after they cover trenchs.
Can't wait to see this finished project.
That is a crap load of sod:dizzy:

I don't know Duramax but I am still in Shock. I have never seen that much sod in one place at one time. Except a sod farm:)
I will check this project out this weekend with more pics.
I thinks we at least 250 big rolls and probably 50 pallets. They could grass the parkin lots too with all that. No way they use 1/2 of it. Has to be a goverment project.

OMG, what a waste. makes me want to puke. It all makes sense though if it is a gov. job, lots of backing. I mean what are they doing with so much sod, it looks like theres no place to even install it.

We have several nice 300k neighborhoods around here where the contractors tried installing sod on like 8 outta 10 houses. Been only about 3 years for most houses and they've had complete redo or it has to be constantly attended too. Complete BS for sod jobs. Talked to a guy yesterday who had a woman do her sod and then came back 3 months later in the fall and told them it needed to be seeded to fill in the bare spots they had not take...wtf?!

Where in the world is all that sod going? Did they simply install the new sod over all of that old grass?

Checked in on this job today. Looks like they used more sod than I thought. It hasn't been cut and if they cut about 3" tall, they will be OK.
Probably get a good deal on this sod that's left. Been sittin there about a month:)
