Well, that was fast. The first piece of sod at PPL Park was laid down on Monday morning and the last on Wednesday. The milestone is another major step towards the stadium's first MLS match on June 27th against Seattle Sounders FC.

For now, enjoy some of the most beautiful photos of sod you'll ever see.
