Did You Buy Sod or Certified Turfgrass

Before you specify or buy sod for a project, you analyze the site conditions and make a careful choice based on the unique characteristics of a particular turfgrass variety. The success of your project hinges on the ability of that variety to perform as expected. However, contamination from other grasses or weeds could jeopardize the installation, unless you purchase certified turfgrass.
