In order to improve your backyard or piece of land, sometimes sod installation is necessary. Luckily there are sod farms that specialize in the sale of fresh cut strips or sections of grass with topsoil attached to hold the roots together. This way the turf can be added to a piece of land to create a beautiful, lush lawn. As you may know, sod farms grow various types of grass and sell it at wholesale prices to distributors and nurseries. Below you will find a few different types of sod grass.
Bermuda – This is the most popular type of turf for lawns and backyards. It is deep green in color and is able to handle a lot of heavy foot traffic well. However, it does not grow well in shaded areas, and requires a lot of sunlight.
