Sod Down.......

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Referral Group Incorporated

It isn't easy to put sod down but I am finished now. It comes in ten foot pieces and it is heavy. I mentioned earlier that it is surprising that it is actually cheaper than grass seed, but an ordeal to get and lay down. I think it is generally thought that it is expensive because if you pay someone to get it and put in down it does get expensive. Fortunately I only needed to fill in areas so I just went with it. 

Once done and after a shower I picked up a table I found on Facebook and took it to my Antique Gallery. Can you say physically spent? Well say it or not.......it's cocktail time now.

Sheila- the good thing is that it's done!!!  Good for you!!! I've never had to lay sod but I can only imagine how back breaking it must be.

Morning Sheila.

My wife and I put down some sod just a couple of week ago. If I were doing it all alone, it wouldn't get done.  That is backbreaking work.

We could use some sod for a few patches along the mews.

Be careful with the heavey work.
