Now let’s talk about that Winter weather that is coming. In a pinch, salt is salt, right?

As a business owner, property owner, or snow removal business, having a rock-solid rock salt vendor like RSSY is a necessity when dealing with Northern Virginia Winters.

Fall is the Best Time to Plant Sod in Northern Virginia

The early Fall or mid-Fall tends to be the best time to plant sod in Northern VA. This is because the temperatures have cooled down from the Summer highs and you tend to get more precipitation during these months. There is plenty of time between Fall and Winter for the sod to root and establish prior to dormancy which means in the Winter, your lawn will be healthy, full and easy to green up in the Spring.
 
Stop by the Yard and speak with one of our salespersons to discuss your sod requirement. RSSY will make sure you install your sod properly in your yard. Please call us (703) 339-8095 or visit our web page for more information.
