Free Sod?

IdeasThis is an Ideas Brain Dump Post.

On my way to the office today I noticed a construction crew working on the side of the road digging in preparation to put a sidewalk in. Then it hit me – these guys were tearing up really niceley manicured grass (it was in front of some businesses) and just sticking it in the dumptruck along with the other good topsoil. I wonder…

Would they let someone go on ahead of them and take the sod away before they got to it? If so…that would be a great way for a person to get some free sod for those home landscaping projects. There’s also potential there for an entrepreneurial person to get the sod and resell it. Dang, if I had of noticed it sooner and had my van prepped I would have swung by and seen if I could pick up some sod for my front lawn that needs done 😉
