  • I also love this grass, Kelly. I ordered a pallet of West Coaster Sod Tall Fescue sod last week, and it was delivered today. The driver was great! I have never seen such a beautiful bunch of grass before, and I am incredibly pleased with this company. They are quick to respond to emails and very helpful in general. I will be ordering from them again in the future.
