sod sofa

In an annual fall traditon, students in the Art of Horticulture (PLHRT 2010) constructed a sod sofa at Cornell Botanic Gardens adjacent to the Nevin Center, October 2.

Under the guidance of instructor Emily Detrick and turf specialist Frank Rossi, associate professor and turf specialist in the Horticulture Section of the  they shaped a mix of soil and compost to form comfortable spots to sit, then covered the foundation with rolls of sod.

The sofa needs a few days to firm up, dry out and root.  So if you visit, please observe the signage signalling whether or not it’s ready for you to try out.

You can watch the process in this time lapse video:
