If sod is exposed to hot weather for even a few hours, it’s susceptible to on-pallet spoilage. Think of all of that sod sitting outside of the big box stores baking in the summer sun, sometimes for days at a time. To avoid this problem, after we harvest Marathon Sod, the pallets are transferred into our own specially built cooling chamber which, through a high tech evaporative cooling process, drops the sod temperature to well below 40 degrees. Brrrrrrrrrrrr! This prevents the sod from spoiling, keeping it fresher and healthier, so it will thrive when establishing itself at your home.
No one else in the sod industry is equipped to provide this valuable service. We are the only sod grower whose commitment to quality dictates making such a substantial investment for our customers.
