Buy Local

Choosing to buy your sod from a local, Central Florida sod farm is your best option for a few reasons. The first reason is that it is going to cost less when you minimize the transportation expenses. Second, as a living organism, sod is at risk during long transportation and can possibly be damaged over long distances. Lastly, buying local means that your sod will be appropriate for the local climate.
