Good luck there. We have a sod job that I need to finish and both my sod suppliers are backed up due to flooded fields and back log

We got a load of sod, the sod fell apart trying to install it. This year has really pushed the envelope. Too bad I have to work til Saturday, must be nice to be a employee.

I'm working this weekend now too. But it was worth it, we pulled off my biggest day ever today, and I only had two guys working.

So freaking excited right now! Definitely made up for the rant I had going on Monday morning! (I'm just heading home now)

For all you guys installing sod..... DeBucks Sod Farm near Lapeer is your supplier. Grade A sod that doesn't fall apart when you grab it. Very competitive price wise. Delivery, of course. Used a few local farms (Macomb county) for the last few years. Will never go back after using DeBucks. Family owned. Owner actually delivered my sod!
810 653-2201.

Not a salesman for them, just a happy landscaper!

All my years landscaping, everyone I've worked for uses Debuck. They've always had excellent sod.
