What Goes into Sod Farming?

Production

Site preparation:

The first step in sod farming is preparing the site where the grass will be grown. This involves removing any existing vegetation, tilling the soil, and leveling the field.

Planting:

Once the site is prepared, we take pallets of good grass and put on a sod planter. The planter chops it up and puts into the soil.
