The Sod Source grows several types of Georgia sod so you can find the best turfgrass for your project. Whether it’s a commercial field or a home landscaping project, we can find sod to suit a huge variety of sun and shade conditions, irrigation requirements or even different colors for the perfect look.

Personal service

The business is still operated by our owner and founder Chris Hays. We don’t use middlemen – unlike some sod farms in Georgia, you’ll be purchasing directly from our farm where we grow and cut the turfgrass ourselves, so quality is guaranteed.

At Sod Source, no order is too big or too small. We have 500 acres of Georgia sod suited to all your needs. We can also deliver or arrange a collection for you or install it ourselves – ask for details.

Why is sod better than grass seed?

Before purchasing from Sod Source, you may be wondering – why sod instead of seed? As growers of top-notch sod, we can confidently say sod beats grass seed because:

1. Instant results for much less work

A traditional seeded lawn takes a long time to grow, is seasonal, and must be protected as it grows. Laying sod takes just hours, and you can usually use your new lawn within a couple of weeks.

2. Suitable for commercial and residential customers

For commercial customers who operate to tight deadlines, opting for a sod lawn makes it easier to have sports pitches, grass tennis courts, golf courses, and similar installations ready for operation on time. 

When time is money, using sods rather than seeds often results in a more economical, cost-effective installation. 

Residential customers, particularly those with children and/or pets, know how difficult it is to keep a seeded lawn undisturbed whilst it takes root. Sods usually need just a couple of weeks to become fully established. 

This makes them a convenient choice, as well as one that’s more likely to yield the high-grade results you’re looking for.

3. A better quality lawn for your garden

Sod grown by professionals like Sod Source is higher quality – we grow on the best soil and the sod is given optimal treatment. A seeded lawn grows weeds along with the grass. These frequently need eliminating using weed killer, which isn’t always a child or pet-friendly process.

Once your sods are laid, they require minimal maintenance to bed down when compared with the high demands of a newly seeded patch of soil. Not only is this attention time-consuming, but it also costs money, potentially adding hundreds of dollars to the price of your lawn.

4. Sod is flexible and better-looking

Sod lawns look better. Why? 

The grass is healthier and blades grow close to each other, which also prevents weeds. Different types of sod can be used in different areas for consistency, which is hard to achieve with a seeded lawn.

Sod lawns take less time, money and maintenance when compared to seeded lawns, and we’re proud to be one of the best quality sod farms in Georgia. If you’re unsure which sod is right for you or if you have any other questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

5. Reduced maintenance when you use sod

A sod lawn, sourced from sod farms near you, consists of densely packed blades of grass that are already well-established. There is little room for weeds to grow between the blades, as well as less likelihood of unwanted bald patches developing. 

Also, sod soil is high in the nutrients that grass needs to thrive, meaning additional fertilizing once the sod is laid can be kept to a minimum. Ask us about our disease-resistant options!

The high quality of the sod means that the need for traditional lawn maintenance tasks, such as aeration, weed-killing and even irrigation, is greatly reduced in comparison to a seeded lawn. 

Not only is a low-maintenance lawn more convenient, but it can also save our customers money! Many of our commercial customers discover that their labor costs are reduced when they use sod for their turfing projects, rather than seeded lawns.

6. A sod lawn is enormously versatile

Sod lawns are made of grass blades that are already thriving in a premium soil that’s specifically formulated to support luxuriant, sustainable grass growth. As a grass sod is already growing well, it can be placed on a variety of soil surfaces and it is still likely to transplant successfully. 

Particularly if you have a less-than-ideal soil, we are the sod suppliers Georgia residents turn to when they want a particular sod which will work well on their intended site. 

As sod growers in Georgia who have several different varieties of sod available, we can provide quality sod that will work well in a range of environments. From shady locations through to areas that experience heavy traffic (eg. grass pitches) or areas where acid soil is a problem, we can offer sods containing a suitable type of grass.

Sod lawns take less time, money and maintenance compared to seeded lawns, and we’re proud to be one of the best quality sod farms in Georgia. If you’re unsure which sod is right for you or if you have any other queries, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Frequently Asked Questions

FAQ's

WHERE CAN SOD BE USED?

Sod can be installed practically anywhere, even where seeding is impossible or too costly. Sod is available in a variety of grass blends to suit various needs, such as climate, amount of usage, sun and shade conditions.

CAN SOD WITHSTAND HEAVY USAGE?

Yes. In a couple of weeks, your sod will be ready for full use. It creates the perfect surface for lawn games and family outdoor living. With today’s various blends of hardy grasses, sod can also be used for parks, golf courses and athletic fields, as well as homes and business parks.

IS A SOD LAWN LESS WORK?

Yes, a professional sod lawn needs no special care because it is a healthy, mature lawn when installed, whereas a sprigged or seeded lawn requires months of nurturing to reach maturity. After it has been installed, just water, mow and fertilize your sod lawn as needed; and it will remain a healthy, green carpet of grass, requiring very little maintenance.
