Laying down sod is no piece of cake


There aren’t many sure things in life, but one thing I know for sure is that you have to deal with the consequences of your actions. You have to follow through on some things.” — Rosie Dunne quotes 

In case you thought that laying down sod was as easy as placing lasagna noodles in a greased pan think again. It is arduous work requiring skill, caution, attention to safety rules and regulations and above all adherence to common sense practices. The sod strips are carted to a job site on wooden pallets and then it is up to the site super to ensure the job gets done right. There are no shortcuts to follow and it is not as easy as the lay person might assume.

  1. I watched a neighbor and his son lay sod in their large, corner-lot yard. I know they would have gladly let the pros handle the job. Not like layering lasagna noodles at all!

    • Good catch Lois. A number of folks I spoke with as they watched the team lay the sod thought it was as easy as making lasagna until they saw all the planning and work involved. Thanks for writing. Enjoy the day. 🙂
