When buying sod, there are many important factors to consider. How it was grown, what kind of grass you want, and, of course, how far you’re willing to travel to get it.
In Cedar Rapids, Iowa, we have many options. There are many sod farms throughout Eastern Iowa, and at least three reputable farms in Cedar Rapids alone.
Without going in any particular order, the first on this list is:
Blue Grass Enterprises, located at 3965 C Ave Ext Alburnett, IA 52202.
They sell two different kinds of sod: Master Blend and RTF sod. They can install it for you or give advice on how to install it yourself. They’ve been open for business since the 1960’s, and have many loyal customers returning each spring.
