When Should You Schedule Sod Delivery for the Best Results?, O'Fallon, Missouri

If you’re looking to establish a new, lush lawn fairly quickly, installing sod is the ideal way to go. This will allow you to start out with a mature foundation that has already been professionally grown and cultivated. However, to achieve the healthiest and most appealing results, it’s important to know the best time of year for sod delivery. This is one of the many factors that is crucial for proper installation. 

sod deliveryTechnically, you can sod during any season, as long as you have a sufficient water source available. However, it’s the spring and early fall months that typically produce the most favorable outcomes. This is because of the moderate, cool temperatures, combined with occasional rain. These elements help the sod root quickly. When scheduling your sod delivery, it’s important to know the rolls are a living, breathing product. As such, you should be ready to begin your installation shortly after your order has arrived.

It’s preferable for sod to be laid the same day you receive it, but, if this isn’t possible, you should have a small window of time to wait. If it’s warm outside, the rolls may last about 24 to 48 hours after delivery, but there is a high risk they will start to dry out if left in the heat of the sun. This is why it’s a good idea to store them in a cool, shady spot. You will also want to remove the rolls from the pallet, lay them out, and lightly water them to maintain moisture and avoid dehydration.


Before placing your order for sod delivery, it’s best to complete your soil preparation, so the site is ready for immediate installation. This will provide optimal conditions for growth.
