Johnson Farms produces two different kinds of sod. Tall Fescue which is a shade and sun tolerant type with a higher tolerance to drought and traffic conditions and a Kentucky Blue Grass is the showier of the two kinds of grass and tends to go dormant faster in times of drought. Blue Grass will tolerate only full sun and does not stand up to as much traffic as the Fescue.
No. We sell to the public as well as those customers in the trade.
Our sod is cut to order, so calling ahead is always a good idea. To get delivery, it is in your best interest to call at least two to three days in advance, and to pick up, you can call the same day. There is a small amount of waiting time when you pick up because your sod is cut fresh from the field, and loaded for you.
We do not recommend purchasing the sod until you are ready to lay it. If it sits in the sun rolled up, it will turn brown and may even die. We can only guarantee delivery. When you get your sod, if there are any problems you should call immediately, so we may replace it for you. It is your responsibility as the purchaser to water it sufficiently and lay it properly. (For proper installation and maintenance, see the sod page on our site).
We will deliver as far north as New York, and as far south as Maryland, and into most areas of Pennsylvania.

The amount per trailer will vary according to field conditions. Freight rates vary according to the size and location of the delivery.
