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.

- I'd like to seed my yard with buffalo grass seed. The previous lawn was pulled out this past may, and I have since placed about 2 inches of compost over the area, and it is a full sun area. What are the best practices for seeding the yard and buffalograss establishment? Is this the right time? My soil is old alluvial soil...a fine loam I believe, very dark and rich in organics. ANYTHING you might know about this would be much appreciated.
