    the trucks are still rolling in my area,
    We have tons of grass farms around here.
    Not sure when it's too late. I think it's ok anytime. But it just wont take root untill the growing season.

    You are fine to lay sod for a while still. We have about 5000 yards in E-town and another 3500 yards in Morehead, plus another 1000-2000 yard job in Fort Knox to lay by the end of next week. Keep your eye's open for my trucks in your area, we have several state projects going on, off the Watterson

    You have to get prequalified and be bonded, but yes the money is very good.

    As long as they are cuttin you can be laying. Last winter we laid 300 yds. and it was 28 degrees outside. Had it cut two days in advance when it was about 40 and kept it inside a heated garage until ready to install. Sod is a mature plant like a 2" tree. It will stay in dormancy until spring.
