Frequently Asked Questions:

Q: What kind of sod will work best for me?

Your choice of turfgrass variety depends on the final use of the area to be sodded. Information on each variety's characteristics, recommended uses and maintenance requirements will help you select the turfgrass variety most appropriate for your use.

All of our varieties are #1 Kentucky Bluegrass Sod:

Peat Based Sod:

  • Peat is organic material that is used to enrich soil.
  • Peat retains moisture better than mineral soil.
  • Peat based sod is lighter to handle for installation.
  • Peat based sod is suited for residential applications.

Mineral Based Sod

  • Mineral based sod is suited for high traffic applications
  • Mineral based sod is heavier to install
