Where you getting sod? Whats it costing? I get sod from lee road nursery for small orders or wisper winds for larger. Always pretty turf and really no problems. I tried Duda but they wanted more than buying it from a nursery that got it from them.

I can do 5000 full color hangers for the cost of a year membership over there. Which would not be a problem if I new the return to expect. But I need something to go on and I have'nt recieved anything worth pushing me that way

Hello everyone,

My name is Dawn Bennett. I work with Drew Roberts at BearWise Landscapers. He told me to get on here and check out all the good discussions. It is nice to see this many lawn care businesses from Florida getting together to talk here and in the Florida Group. I just wanted to introduce myself. i look forward to seeing all of you around. Let me know if I can help with information about insurance products to protect your business or with putting together comparative insurance quotes for any of you.

I wish all of you the best this year in business.

Thank you,

Dawn

I'm in Sanford, Florida. Dawn, I talked to you the other day on the phone. Thanks for helping me out. I met Drew a few months ago. It's nice to see you here online. For everybody else in Florida, give the people at BearWise Landscapers a call about your insurance. They saved me a lot of money switching from Nationwide.

On another note, how many Florida Gators Fans are there on this website?

I've used Royal over in Gotha off Hemple rd 500@90 for Floratam.

I need the following business cards from reputable non-competing business I strictly just want to mow and trim and hit the beds with BB sprayer.



1) Fert guy
2) Sod guy
3) Tree guy

I get sod request all the time and I hate doing it and would like to still be able to turn someone else onto the job rather than a competing mow blow guy.

I would be more than happy to do some sod and landscae work for you. I do light tree work so that may not be what you want. I also have a good fert guy's number if you like. I met him on here and he really seems to know what he's doing.

Go Gators

Been getting it from Sod King here in Oviedo CK - run $100 per pallet and of course $5 deposit on pallet. Getting some from Duda in Morning. Have not used them in awhile but Sod Kind could not guarantee they would have in the morning because of the rain on Wed. They said okeechobee were they were getting stopped cutting because of moisture.
Most of the sod has been good as I waited until the last two weeks before even attempting to try to get. Before then most of it was coming out of South FL from what I understand and was not local sod.
Old Man Tuckers Sod farm in Orlando is the best price I have found on Floratam , they had that sale in October and November of last year, had to prepay but got 400 sq ft pallets for $55. Just had them refund 8 pallets worth because there sod still is not ready yet, would of made REALLY GOOD money with those pallets at that cost though, I hope we do not have another winter like that, oh wait, yes I do
