WHY YOU SHOULD BUY SAND BASED SOD
When buying sod in Central and South Florida, you will run into two different bases soil wise: Sand based or Muck based. We get a lot of questions over the phone about which is better for our customers, and here is why we think sand based is far better for your Central and South Florida lawn:
THANK YOU FOR YOUR INFORMATION
All this information about muck base sod is false. I am the owner Operator of Sod World LLC for the last 5 years. We have only used muck base sod due to it being higher quality than sand base. It has never shrunk or needed anything filled in after the install like stated above. Never oxidizes. The roots grows straight down. They won't try to stay with the muck soil. It's a plant. It knows it needs to root for strength. We have seen countless sand yards fail. Almost all of what we remove is sand base to install muck base. Indeed both sods will work fine if taken care of. The muck base can handle some abuse since it retains water while the sand base cannot handle any. Better not miss a single watering with sand base. It's crazy there is so much false information about sand vs muck base. 5 years now only 1 yard has failed due to it being scalped. You can find us on HGTV. NOBODY WANTA TO DRIVE 5 HOURS TO TRUCK IT IN. THATS THE REAL ISSUE
