    yeah the people in stockbridge are not that friendly. I think the farm in howell right by tanger outlets is Debucks but dosent look like any sod is growing. Plus they both wanted more for delivery

    Well delivery does add a lot to cost and they are in a business to make money.

    So do you want decent sod or lower priced delivery?

    Personally, I'd rather have the good sod which makes a customer happy.

    Just for grins, what was the price difference for delivery?

    That a pallet must me? If I had to run to stockbridge with a truck and trailer pick something up and drop it off you can bet I'd be billing them for $60 a hour x 4hrs.

    The complaining phone calls have begun. I guess 8 am cutting on July 4th is not a good idea.
