    September through November are ideal times to lay sod.Cant help you with a north Jersey location though.Look in yellow pages under sod farms.

    We sod all season. We offer no guarantees on sod, and have seen it fry within 2 days in this heat. I would not suggest installing now if there is no irrigation. We did 15 pallets 2 weeks ago, and it looks golden even through our heat wave. It is really dependant on the customer. :)

    Yea this time of year, unless your customer has an irrigation system I would be extremely careful. Include in your proposal that the homeowner is responsible for watering and you offer no guarantees on it.
