Supplying a reliable sod product is the best way to keep customers happy. But it can get pricey if you supply what isn’t in demand. That’s why so many providers buying sod are willing to take special orders and keep careful stock of the most popular products.

By assessing your inventory, you’ll be able to stay informed about what people want and when they want it.

1. Keep the Customer Satisfied. People looking for a specific product appreciate customizable ordering systems and are often willing to pay more for specialized services.

2. Know Your Climate. Uninformed customers might be wondering what kind of sod will work best for their specific applications, residential or commercial. Being a knowledgeable source of information will make you valuable to potential market audiences. Know what kind of grass grows well in the area and what will fail, so that you can point people in the right direction.

3. Keep Orders Conservative Until You Know More. Don’t commit to a certain type of sod until you’ve seen indications that it will be a popular product and yield a high return on investment.
