How late in the fall season can you lay sod in northern Utah?
Rate This FAQ
At this time of the year (mid-late October), I would recommend waiting until spring. While sodding does give you a bit more flexibility than seed, your goal should be to establish roots into the native soil before we start having consistent freezes. I don't believe that there's enough time left for that now. Of course, this is all dependent upon what sort of fall weather we have.
