Sod is perfect for adding curb appeal to your lawn and is often one of the most overlooked things people consider when buying or selling a home. When you compare sod to other investments in renovations and building, the cost of turf simply has not escalated in proportion. The average price of sod in 1978 was 99 cents a yard. The average price of property has risen from $4000 an acre to $100,000 an acre. The price of the sod to beautify that property has only doubled in the same time, while the price of land to grow that sod is 25 times higher. While the price of sodding your yard has only doubled, the price of buying that home is 160 times the price it was in 1978. Sod prices are also considerably lower in the Vancouver area than it is in other Canadian cities. For example, sod costs 33% more in Calgary. Sod for your yard is very affordable.
