This sod makes a perfect lawn! With the best all-around performance of all of the grasses we grow, its the most popular turf in the Mid-Atlantic! It offers great color, texture, shade tolerance, and drought resistance. The maintenance is lower than conventional tall fescues, meaning less time doing yardwork.
University Tested and Selected
This grass is state certified with the cultivars selected based on performance tests of hundreds of applicants at the University of Maryland. This blend is superior to other fescues in the areas of genetic color, drought tolerance, disease resistance, pest resistance, and texture. We only use this premium blend in our sod, ensuring that our clients have a high performance yard for years to come!
Great for full sun and partial shade
Most lawn grasses are full-sun only, and tend to decline in partial shade. Our DuraBlend® will survive with as little at 4-5 hours of sunlight a day! Shady areas that receive less sunlight should be overseeded in the fall with our DuraBlend® Seed.
How its delivered
DuraBlend® Tall Fescue is cut in 10 square foot rolls that are stacked 60 rolls per pallet. If you purchase less than half a pallet, the rolls will generally be hand loaded in your vehicle or left at the jobsite without a pallet.

How doI know how many sq. ft. i have in both the front and back yard?If you are computer savvy you can use our app: http://www.plantsod.com/sod-calculator/ Otherwise just measure the length and width of both areas and give our office a call! Thanks!
I have a shady back yard. What is the best sod for me? I'm leaving in parkville, md do you deliver there?Thank you.Your best option is going be the DuraBlend Tall Fescue. It still does need at least a few hours of sunlight a day to do well so it would not work if it was dense shade. We deliver to Parkville frequently! Thanks, Jack
How many square feet are in one roll of sodKentucky Bluegrass and Tall Fescue come in 10 square foot rolls. Zoysia and Bermuda come in 5 square foot slabs. Thanks!
What are the height and weight of a ten foot roll?Our 10 square foot rolls generally weight around 35 lbs, but can be heavier (up to 50 lbs) if it has rained recently. They usually measure 2' x 5' feet, but sometimes measure 18" x 80" inches if we are cutting with a different machine. (Either way its still 10 square feet per roll)
When is the best time for installing sod?Do you deliver in Catonsville?You can install sod year-round in Maryland. The best time is anytime other than mid-summer due to the amount of irrigation required for establishment when it is hot out. Yes we frequently deliver to Catonsville. Thanks!
Do you offer installation?We do not offer installation at this time, but we do have a list of landscapers that we can recommend depending on where you are located. Give us a call at 410-827-5000. Thanks!
You guys sale by the "unit" but never define how much area a "unit" covers. what's the size a "unit" of sod?We were just talking about this in the office today... you are not the only one who asked! We sell our sod by the square foot, and it comes in 10 square foot rolls. The website was updated to make this more clear... Thanks! Jack
How soon should sod be installed after receiving delivery?The time you have to install sod depends greatly on the outside air temperature. Sod is a living plant and begins to decompose as soon as it is rolled up. The number one factor in decomposition rate is heat. If the temperature is in the 80's or higher, you should install the sod within 24 hours. If the temperature is in the 50 - 70 degree range, you may have a couple days to install it. If it is near freezing outside, you have up to a week to install sod. When in doubt, its always best to install sod ASAP!
Is this durablend appropriate for zone6 Littlestown Pa, and would you deliver there?Yes, DuraBlend grows well in PA and we do deliver there! Give us a call for more info. Thanks! 800-866-1387
How thick is the DuraBlend Fescue sod? I need to know how much room to leave for sprinkler heads and how to match a stone walkway.The actual soil thickness is usually about 3/4" to 1"... Keep in mind that the dirt under the sod will settle slightly over the first few weeks, so you might shoot to be about 1" over grade with the sod.
We are moving into a new construction home late April/May of 2018. I would like to lay sod in the areas close to the house.How long does it take between order and delivery, we are in Baltimore County close to Towson.We can usually deliver within 24-48 hours... Just give us a ring once you are ready and you can pick the delivery day (Mon - Sat) Thanks!
How much sod comes on one pallet?We usually put 600 square feet on one pallet.
If i went to my local Lowes what would be a good brand of tall fescue to over seed this with.Any turf type Tall Fescue blend will have similar texture to the DuraBlend, but may not perform as well... The seed in the Durablend is selected based on trials at the University of Maryland and are the best performers in the Mid-Atlantic climate. Thanks!
what sod is best for sandy soil?Zoysia and Bermuda will do better in very sandy soil as they need less water than Kentucky Bluegrass or Tall Fescue. Tall Fescue and Bluegrass will still grow well in sandy soil but will need significantly more water in the hot summer months. Thanks!
I have a townhouse in the area is roughly 142.083 square footage how much do I need to order or how do I order it thanks MichelleYou would probably want to order 200 square feet just so you have some extra for cutting around the edges. You can either order online or call us to place an order. You can also either pick it up at our farm or have us deliver. Give us a call at 410-827-5000. Thanks! Jack
Which of your sod's is most dog urine tolerant? I only need 100sq feet for a condo patio but my giant bread Old English Sheepdog often causes brown patches in the common grass area (which is poor quality grass and poorly maintained).I would recommend Zenith Zoysa for that.... It is a small area for a large dog and Zoysia will fill in any bare spots that the dog creates. Thanks
The townhouse in the picture looks to be the same size as my townhouse, how much sod was needed to complete the area shown in the picture?Thanks,ShellyIt appears to be about 250 square feet, though the pallet in the picture is 400 square feet. It is likely that the customer used the extra sod in the backyard. I would recommend measuring the length and width of your actual yard though. Thanks!
