Many of our customers have confessed to initially choosing to purchase the cheapest grass they could find. A lot of people think that the brand is the most important part. For example, they believe that Tifway 419 Bermuda is going to be the same quality of grass, no matter what company it is purchased from. As is true for many things, the old adage, “You get what you pay for” is applicable when it comes to sod. First-time buyers in particular are more likely to believe that they can purchase cheap, bad grass, and improve it. While possible, this route is not economical. It takes months of work and usually ends up costing more to change bad grass to good grass than it would have cost to purchase quality turf to begin with.
A first-time buyer should choose a reputable company. Ask friends and neighbors about their sod and the company they used. It is also reasonable to visit the farm or ask to see the sod before purchasing it. At Top Turf, we encourage our customers to ask questions and do research before buying.
