Yes! You CAN Plant Sod All Year Round!

We are often asked questions regarding how long we will cut sod, when it’s available, when we stop cutting for the year, or if it’s a good time to plant, and similar.

  • We cut sod and have it available ALL YEAR ROUND (as long as the ground isn’t’ frozen or snowed upon, which doesn’t happen too often here in the Southwest).
  • We never stop cutting sod (again, only if the ground is frozen).
  • Sod can be planted ALL YEAR ROUND, even when dormant.
  • Planting sod ALL YEAR is perfectly fine in Albuquerque and the nearby surrounding region with similar elevations.

Sod Ordering for Fall & Winter

Category : Ordering Info , Products

On October 1st, 2018, we began our fall/winter hours of operation.

We answer phones 8:30am to 11:45am Monday through Friday.

We will deliver sod to your home or job site Tuesdays and Fridays, for a delivery charge.

Special pick ups can be scheduled for Tuesdays and Fridays at our ALBUQUERQUE LOT, if we have enough orders to bring in a truck from our farm. You will have to call ahead to schedule this pick up. (Number below)

As always, you may come out to our farm in Moriarty during the fall and winter (hours below). We cut throughout fall and winter, as long as there isn’t snow on the ground or the ground is not frozen (which doesn’t happen very much here in NM at our farm).

If you are planning on coming out to the MORIARTY FARM, please call us in the morning first (number below) to check on farm weather conditions, as they can be quite different than the weather in Albuquerque.

When Is Sod Available for Pick-Up or Delivery?

If you are picking up at our ALBUQUERQUE LOT:

Please call 48 hours in advance of your expected pick up day.

  • Spring thru Fall Only (March-October):
    • We cut our sod fresh for you, so if you are picking up sod in Albuquerque, sod typically does not arrive at our lot before 9:00 am, but could be as late as 11:00 am. Please call before you come to see if the delivery truck has arrived yet.
    • All sod is pre-ordered for Albuquerque pick-ups, so we usually do not have any extra sod sitting on our Albuquerque lot. But you are always welcome to call and ask, as we do have cancellations every once in a while. We only bring sod in for pickup Tuesdays through Saturdays during the cutting season (not winter). If you need sod on Monday, you will need to go to the farm in Moriarty.


If you are picking up at our MORIARTY FARM:

MORIARTY FARM ORDERS MUST BE PAID IN CASH (In certain circumstances, credit/debit card prepay available via phone)

  • Sod is cut fresh for you when you arrive at the farm to pick it up. We never cut orders at the farm ahead of time, as we really don’t want to see our beautiful sod go to waste if someone decides they cannot come pick up. Cutting it fresh does not take much time out of your day – about 5-7 minutes to cut one pallet of sod (455 sq ft). You won’t have to wait very long and you get the freshest cut sod available in the Southwest.
  • Sod can be picked up during our business hours, which vary depending on location.

If your sod is BEING DELIVERED to your location:

DELIVERIES MUST BE PRE-PAID WITH CREDIT/DEBIT CARD (credit/debit card prepay available via phone)

  • Spring/Summer/Fall Season Only (October-March):
    • We deliver sod Tuesdays through Fridays all year long. Fridays are our busiest delivery days, so we recommend that you call well in advance, if you wish to have your sod delivered on a Friday.
  • Currently, we are delivering our Fescue blends.  We are not cutting any Park Blend or Bluegrass at this time.
  • Delivery pricing is dependent upon location. Please call 505-832-4247 for delivery pricing.
    • We do not deliver on Saturdays.
    • Monday afternoon deliveries are upon special request only.

Paying for Your Order:

  • Deliveries must paid at least 24 hours in advance of your scheduled delivery day.
  • Deliveries can be paid over the phone (505-832-4247) via credit card, or in person at our Albuquerque lot (with cash, credit/debit card or check). Our delivery driver will bring your sod receipt with him.
  • Sod orders for pick-up at our Albuquerque lot can be paid when ordered OR upon pick-up, but must be paid in full prior to taking your order from our lot.

Ahh…September, the month for planting seed for next years harvest

Actually, it requires 18-24 months, from seeding to harvest, to achieve a quality, mature sod; ready for market.  Sure, some farms will lay a plastic netting down that lets the grass grow up through it; allowing for a 9-12 month harvest; but, the plant may not be fully mature and will sometimes fail to produce the desired results.

When we purchase sod, we expect it to continue to grow for many, many years; possibly providing a lifetime of enjoyment.  So if you have any questions regarding sod, verses other ground cover options, we just might be the ones who can help!

Remember, sod is the safest natural play surface on earth and it does so much to beautify your home.  

Should I seed or sod my yard?

How much sod can my half-ton truck carry?

Category : Knowledge , Ordering Info

Unless you have a truck from the 1960’s or older, “half-ton” does not accurately describe hauling capacity. Today’s half-ton pickups are capable of hauling more than 1000 pounds (1/2 ton). We have successfully loaded many half-ton trucks with one pallet (approximately 2000-2300 pounds depending on water weight).  However, we do not recommend carrying MORE than 1 pallet in your half-ton truck.

IMPORTANT: With this being said, we still HIGHLY recommend checking with your specific truck’s manufacturer (Chevrolet, Ford, GMC., etc.) or your owner’s manual for your truck’s exact hauling specifications. 

Stonegate Turfgrass Ranch takes no liability for damage to your vehicle.
