When Is Sod Available for Pick-Up or Delivery?

Please see current information on
sod availability for Spring 2021.

DELIVERY OR FARM PICK-UP ONLY – Beginning First Two Weeks of May

Please call 48-72 hours in advance of your expected pick up day.



  • 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.


  • All orders must be pre-paid with a credit/debit card via phone.
  • We deliver sod Tuesdays through Fridays.
    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.
    Monday afternoon deliveries are upon special request only. We do not deliver on Saturdays.
  • Currently, we are delivering our Bluegrass. We are not cutting any Park Blend or Fescue Blends at this time. (We do have fescue seed however…for a limited time.)
  • Delivery pricing is dependent upon location. Please call 505-832-4247 for delivery pricing.


  • 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. Our delivery driver will bring your sod receipt with him.
  • If paying by credit card, and picking up at farm (for 2021), please call our office M-F 8am-11am to pay via phone.

Keep Your Soil Moist with Stockosorb®

What is Stockosorb®?

Stockosorb® is a man-made water-absorbing polymer that is designed to improve the capability of soils and other growing media to retain water and plant nutrients. It can be used for the same reasons you would use peat moss mixed in the soil…to retain water near the roots.  Once in contact with water, it will absorb 10 times it weight in water.

How to Apply to Your Soil

We recommend that you add Stockosorb® crystals to your tilled soil using a spreader, AFTER you have added your other soil amendments, and rake it in at about 2″ depth (closest to root level). Do not add water to it until you have laid your sod.

How Stockosorb® Works

Once the Stockosorb® crystals come in contact with water, they will capture water that would have otherwise been lost into the aquifer. They will expand to hold up to 10 times their weight in water and keep the captured water at the root level of the sod. This means that the next time your grass is thirsty, it will “drink” from the water absorbed by the Stockosorb® first, allowing you to save on water usage.

Stockosorb® crystals remain in the soil for 7-10 years (dependent upon soil conditions, etc).

You can also use Stockosorb® when planting trees, plants, in potted plants and gardens, and even in your indoor plants.  Just be careful, as a little bit goes a long way!

Please call us for any more information.

No Netting…Ever!

Category : Knowledge , Products , Turf Care

Through-out our sod growing industry, some farmers are turning to using plastic netting to hold their sod rolls together, rather than waiting until the root system grows to a total mature age.

Using a netting benefits only the farmer…not their customer!

Recently, a customer drove to our Moriarty farm to purchase our premium sod.  Last year, he bought sod from one of the large outlet chain stores; but sod died during the winter.  He shared, when rototilling the dirt, all of the netting, which was still in the dead roots, twined up the roto-tiller and caused much trouble clearing the rototiller.  Obviously he was happy that we, at StoneGate TurfGrass Ranch, never take the short path, and wait the long growing period until our sod is totally mature and healthy.


We appreciate your business, but rather more…your friendship!

Buy New Mexico!

Category : Knowledge , Products , Turf Care

Did You Know?

Some sod is imported, into New Mexico, from as many as 5 states. This sod travels many miles (two, maybe three days); drying out during their long trip! Out of state deliveries are limited to one or two maximum per week; causing micro-organisms to grow and build inside old pallets of sod.

This heat and micro-organisms cause sod rotting and spoiling.

Our farm, StoneGate TurfGrass Ranch, is located just 35 miles east of Albuquerque, and we will deliver our fresh cut sod, usually within one-two hours. We promise you will receive the freshest, healthiest, and greenest sod available…and grown closest to Albuquerque.

As usual, we will meet you with a friendly greet and a broad smile – that’s just who we are.

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.

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?
