Does Top Turf Sod Farm deliver and install grass or can I pick it up?


You may pick up your order or we can deliver it, or we can deliver and install it.

The delivery fee depends on how far from the farm it is going.

If we install the grass, there is also an installation fee which is determined by the size of the area, the location, the terrain, etc. See our page on installation.

In order to pick up your sod, you’ll need a vehicle capable of transporting the grass, which can get pretty heavy.  Pallets are 48 inches square, so a truck bed must be at least that wide to fit 1pallet; more or less than a pallet may be transported any a variety of vehicles.  Most customers use a truck or SUV with a trailer to transport their sod, but some have been known to toss a few slabs of turf in the trunk of their car.

Pickups smaller than half-ton (Nissan Frontier, Hard-body, Toyota Tacoma, Chevrolet Colorado, S10, Ford Ranger/Mazda B series, Dodge Dakota) can carry half to three-quarters of a pallet, depending on exact model and suspension equipment. A half ton truck (Chevrolet C1500 Silverado, Ford F150, Dodge Ram 1500, Nissan Titan Toyota Tundra) is capable of carrying about one 50 yard pallet. A three-quarter ton truck will carry the weight of a pallet and a half, though unless they are equipped with a flat bed, only one pallet will fit in the bed, and the remaining half pallet will have to be loaded and unloaded by hand.   A one ton truck (Chevrolet 3500, Ford F350, Dodge Ram 3500)is generally capable of carrying two pallets, if they are equipped with a flat bed.  If they are equipped with pick-up style bed, they usually run out of room before two pallets are loaded, even loading them by hand.  A receiver-hitch trailer can generally carry one pallet per axle. Goose neck trailers can usually carry about two pallets per axle. Also, Fescue slabs tend to be bigger than Bermuda slabs because they usually have more moisture and are cut to be taller and thicker.
