    Where have you been getting your sod ??
    I'm curious because I'm considering changing vendors.
    I'm a local dealer for a sod farm and they're cutting the discount they give me on MY purchases. That's cutting into my margin, but still expecting me to continue to stock it, and take in pallets from whom ever they sell direct to.

    Got the info. Many thanks.
    I thought you were in Western NY. You're abit further away than I thought. We're getting our sod from Batavia right now, which is closer than your guy.
    But... thanks for the response.
