The number of square feet per pallet is also determined by your location. These measurements are for the Jacksonville and St Augustine area sod installations.

Measuring sod is accomplished by breaking your lawn you would like to have sod installed into sections or geometrical shapes where the total areas can then be added together and subtract the areas of planting beds, mulched areas or hardscape that may be inside the area measuring sod.
Its important when measuring sod to keep in mind there is some salvage on all pallets of sod and a measurement too close to the exact amount on a pallet could create a shortage. Most sod species are not available for purchase on a piece bases. If this happens you may want to consider making the area for sod installation smaller or larger within 50 square feet of a pallet. Measuring sod accurately can give you enough information to determine if you want to go through the sod installation yourself or contact us for a free estimate.
