Employees at Sod and Seed, Inc.
At Sod and Seed, Inc. we know that we rely on our staff for our business to keep running. We value every staff member and what they contribute to our company, and we will be sharing some of those employee contributions with you today! We hope today's blog gives you a little insight into what our staff do in order to ensure your sod is delivered fresh from the farm and directly to your doorstep.
Here is one of our favorite helpers guarding a sod sample. This guy likes two things: shiny stuff and grass.
Professional Growth Opportunities for Staff
Installations require many steps, and with a whole crew, a lead to facilitate communication is important to ensure a high quality job. Below is one of our Lead Installers, Jon. One of his contributions is leading quality checks at our job site. Jon helps make sure everyone is doing their part and that teams are working together to complete a high-quality installation.

Over the years, our company clothing has gone through many iterations. However, we have always made sure to make it green! This particular design in the picture below attracted the wrong type of crowd, so we did make some changes. We provide company clothing for all of our employees and ask that they wear it to work, this way we can have our company clothing in our original job site and product pictures, making them unique to our company.

Job Site Inspections
As we mentioned earlier, a job site involves many moving pieces. Even after the installation is done, that is not where the job ends. After the grass is laid out, there are still steps our crew has to inspect for and ensure are done to make the job complete.

Professional Training for Employees
The best way to learn something is by doing, and we believe it is one of the most effective strategies for professional training. At Sod and Seed, Inc., we know there are many things to learn to ensure every staff member is knowledgeable and experienced as much as possible. Sometimes, it's the little things that can matter a lot to our customers. We like to teach and pass along little tips and tricks about our services that will show our professionalism and care for our work, giving customers high quality services and hopefully making us stand out from our competitors.

Quality Checks at Lawn Installation Sites
Quality checks are one of the most important parts of the lawn installation process. In the picture below, you can see a beautifully installed lawn. Even then, there are things you may not know to look for when making a final quality check of a lawn installation.

Getting Dirty on the Job!
There's no such thing as a sod installation without getting dirty. In our blog, "Q & A's About Grass Lawns and Sod Installations" (CLICK HERE to read the blog), our CEO comically but genuinely says that if you try to carry a sod roll without getting dirty, you will hurt your back. It's true! Getting dirty is part of the job. Each sod blade is its own organism, and we work to treat every sod roll with the care it requires, as well as the lawn that will house your new grass.

Ensuring Proper Equipment for All Employees
Lawn installations are most popular during summer, and ensuring we have proper equipment for all employees is crucial. In the heat of summer, especially for our jobs in cities like Walnut Creek, Concord and Oakley, we often bring our own A/C unit to try and help our guys with the heat. You can't see it too well, but it's in the left-hand side of the picture below.
We bring our own air conditioning machine to job sites.
Employee Appreciation at Sod and Seed, Inc.
Thank You, employees and professionals at Sod and Seed, Inc! None of our work would be possible without you. We appreciate our staff in many ways. Some of the little ways we show appreciation is by keeping snacks in the office and water and Gatorade handy at all times for our installers. We appreciate your work and professionalism!
Could you imagine 8 hours of raking?! Namaste...
We hope you have enjoyed some of our pictures of Sod and Seed, Inc. employees! We strive for high quality products, service and professionalism. Thank you, employees of Sod and Seed, Inc. We recently also made an adjustment and ask our employees to enroll in a horticulture class. Is there anything that surprised you about our employees at work? Feel to drop any comments or questions about our employees or company in the comments section below. We hope to hear from you soon!
