How should I store sod?

Sod Storage

Try to schedule your sod delivery when you are ready for installation. Sod is a living thing. If sod is left laying around for too long, it will die. For best results, sod should be put down within 24 hours.

If sod must be stored, unroll it grass side up. Place the sod in a shady area on plastic. Water it down thoroughly and cover with burlap. It should then keep for a few days.
