Frequently Asked Questions

How are your prices so low?

Our prices are low because we position ourselves to sell our own farm-grown sod directly to the public. On the other hand, if you were to buy sod from a big box store, not only would you be paying for sod, but you'd be paying the markup of brokers who buy and resell sod to big box stores and the markup of the big box store itself. That's why you'll see our high-quality Fescue consistently priced 30% to 40% less than what you'd pay elsewhere.

At California Sod Center you'll see significant savings, receive more personalized and knowledgeable support, and have access to farm-fresh, locally-grown sod produced by industry veterans.

Do I need to aerate my lawn?

If you have some high traffic areas that seem to go brown, it may require you to aerate the soil to loosen the soil compaction from the traffic.

Does the type of sprinkler system make any difference?

Just make sure you have enough overlapping coverage of your entire lawn.

How long will sod stay good after delivered?

Same-day installation is vital to the success of the new lawn! Sod is extremely perishable and will begin to degrade quickly.

I need to match my old sod. Do you have any other varieties?

We currently offer St. Augustine, Fescue, and Bioswale. If you're looking for a less common sod type, give us a call and we'll try to point you in the right direction.

Why should I choose Superior Fescue?

We've grown several types of grass over our history but no other grass performs quite as well as the new Superior Fescue. It is the only fescue (green all year long, soft and stable blades) that repairs itself. Other types of popular "long running" fescues require reseeding or patch sodding in case of problems.

What is better, seeding or sodding?

To start new or replace old lawns, people wonder which is better - sod or seed. While seeding can prove easier to start, most people choose sod for two key reasons: laying sod is fast and provides high-quality new lawns almost instantly!
