It is easy to make blunders when buying sod for the first time. There are so many sod brokers making it challenging for the buyers to access the commercial sod farms. Besides, the low-quality turf that most brokers supply will hardly give you the results you’re anticipating. Therefore, the least you would want is to purchase unhealthy and low-quality turf. For that case, the only place that guarantees fresh and quality turf is at the commercial sod farm. Here are the main advantages of buying turf from the farm.
Quality & Freshness
While a commercial sod farm has long-term goals, a brokerage firm is after making a quick kill. Since sod farms strive to be reputable and stay in business, they will supply quality and fresh turf to give you the best results. On the other hand, most intermediary firms will source the turf from anywhere without caring much about quality and freshness as long as they profit.
Brokers source their turf from commercial sod farmers. For that reason, you’re sure that their services are pretty expensive. However, when you buy from the sod farms, you cut the middlemen and get the grass at a surprisingly affordable price. Most sod producers will deliver your order at your premises at a nominal fee, thus helping you avoid transportation costs.
Support Local Economy
When you purchase right from a commercial sod farm, you not only reap the benefits but also help a local business prosper. Besides, farmers need to make a living too. Hence every order you make allows them to put food on the table and support their families.
Get Support & Agricultural Extension Services
Like any other plant, turf is prone to leaf blight, anthracnose, brown patches, and many other diseases. Unlike the brokers, farmers have hands-on experience in lawn care and disease management. Indeed, sod farmers invest a lot of effort, time, and energy to raise their lawns to the highest-quality standards possible. In addition, some sod farmers have been in the business for decades. Therefore, each sod farm expert enjoys outstanding farming knowledge and skills. Luckily most commercial sod farmers are willing to provide extension services to their customers, which you will seldomly get from the brokerage companies.
