    I have been having a problem getting fresh sod this year. the only two places that carry it both expect to get rid of it immediatly and don't take care of it. I have clients that have already prepayed for sod installation and i am not about to lay down yellowing bluegrass sod, eventhough i know that i could keep it alive. My clients pay good money for sod and i just wish i could get some fresh bluegrass that wasn't barely hanging on and didn't look like S$%T. sorry, had to vent..

    Sod doesn't have much of a shelf life. One or two day max. depending on temperature. Sod has to be purchased directly from the grower.
