Are you interested to know exactly how delivery works at Southern Sod, and whether or not we deliver in your area, but would rather find out online than over the phone? Not to worry, here is a quick rundown of some frequently asked questions:

We also deliver sod to parts of Lake and Volusia for additional fees. Give us a call to find out if we service your neck of the woods!
We deliver sod to the following counties on the Treasure Coast:
We also deliver to parts of Brevard for an additional fee, such as Melbourne and Palm Bay.
Do you need a full truckload of sod, which would be 16-18 pallets? We may be able to deliver outside of our normal range for high volume customers. We would love to have your business, so give us a call to find out if we can send you some of our high quality, super healthy, farm fresh sod!
Our drivers are professional, safe, courteous, and prompt. We enjoy their friendly personalities and we think you will, too. They will call the phone number you provide about an hour before delivery to give you time to be at the delivery location. We have forklifts on our trucks and the drivers will offload your pallets as close to where you need them as possible. Keep in mind that the forklifts need at least 10 ft of width to get through gates or fences. If you can't be there when the sod is delivered, simply put out some markers such as flags in the ground where you would like the sod, or let the driver know when he calls.
Q: When is the sod cut?
A: The sod that you order is cut fresh the morning of your delivery. Our crew is careful to stack your pallet with the best sod we have available on the farm.
Q: How long can I wait before laying my new sod?
A: You will need to lay your Southern sod within 24 hours of delivery. Waiting any longer can cause fungus, disease, and death in your new sod.
Q: Do I have to be there when you deliver the sod?
A: As long as you pay with a credit card over the phone, you do not need to be there to accept delivery.
Q: What kind of payment is accepted?
A: We accept cash, money orders, or the following credit cards: Visa, Mastercard, and Discover. We also accept debit cards with Visa, Mastercard, or Discover logos. Due to a high volume of returned checks, we unfortunately can not accept checks as payment.
Q: How much notice do I need to give to get sod delivered?
A: Usually a few days is enough notice, but keep in mind that Thursdays and Fridays fill up fast. If you would like your sod delivered at the end of the week, we may need more notice.
We hope this post has been helpful, and if you still have questions or would like to order some Farm Fresh Southern sod, please do not hesitate to give us a call!
