Maryland Certified Turf Type Tall Fescue Sod
We carry Maryland Certified Turf Type Tall Fescue sod. Tall Fescue is the best grass for our area. It is a full sun grass with light to moderate shade tolerance so will do well in most areas with 6+ hours of sun. It is a deep rooter so it holds up well to drought and traffic.
Ordering, Pricing & Dimensions
We cut sod year round (weather permitting). Sod is cut fresh daily Monday – Friday . Orders should be placed 24 hours in advance for weekday pick ups and 48 hours in advance for Saturday morning pick ups. To order call us at 301 384 6300.
- Rolls of sod cover 10sq ft and measure 2′ x 5′. A roll of sod will weigh approximately 30-40lbs (depending on water content). A pallet of sod contains 60 rolls, covers 600sq ft and weighs approximately 1 ton (varies due to water content).
- An average trunk of a car can carry 10 – 15 rolls of sod
- An average large SUV can carry 20 – 25 rolls of sod
- We recommend a ½ ton pickup truck (1500/F-150) or larger to carry a pallet of sod.
Zoysia Sod and Plugs
We also carry Zoysia sod and plugs in season (mid-May thru August). Zoysia is a specialty summer grass that requires full sun. Zoysia spreads so can be propagated with plugs, but it is slow to establish. Being a summer grass, it goes dormant and has a straw-brown color during winter. It grows very thick and once established it requires little water or herbicides. Contact us for availability.
Have a shaded area? True shade grasses are not found in sod form. If you have an area that gets less then 6 hours of sun you can use Tall Fescue for erosion control but it will not be a permanent solution. With less then 6 hours of sun it will thin out, at which time you could over seed with Fine Fescue seed.
