Welcome to Sod Source: Farm-Direct, High Quality Georgia Sod

For over two decades, the Sod Source has provided the best turfgrass sod for any residential or commercial use across the state of Georgia. We pride ourselves on:

The best variety and quality

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, watering requirements or even different colours 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. We have 500 acres of Georgia sod suited to all your needs. We can also deliver or arrange 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. 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. Seeded lawns grow weeds along with the grass, meaning using weed killer, which isn’t always child or pet-friendly.

3. Sod is flexible and better looking

Sod lawns look better. Why? The grass is healthier, and blades are grown 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 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.
