What is Sod?

Sod, also known as turf, is a piece of grass-covered surface soil held together by the roots of the grass. It is often harvested into rolls and used to create new lawns, repair damaged lawns, or fill in bare spots. Sod is a quick and easy way to get a lush, green lawn, and it can be used in a variety of settings, including residential, commercial, and public areas.
