Our team will walk you through the descriptions of each sod type and help you choose the best grass for your home or business.

Kentucky Bluegrass

Most customers are drawn to our Kentucky Bluegrass sod due to its beautiful aesthetic. Characterized by rounded tips and vibrant green coloring, Kentucky Bluegrass adds curb appeal to your home. The tenacious sod is often used for sports fields because it won’t get damaged easily. It survives cold weather with ease and multiplies.

Tall Fescue

Cool season sod like tall fescue can withstand even the most bitter winter weather. Maryland certified tall fescue sod is a popular selection for sports fields due to its tough nature. It can support heavy foot traffic from soccer games without displaying markings or damage.

Warm Season Grasses

We offer two varieties of warm season grasses: Bermuda and Zoysia. Both kinds of grass originate from tropical regions and thrive in a hot climate. During autumn and winter months, the cold weather causes these grasses to fade to brown and go dormant until spring.

Bermuda grasses are available as either sod or sprigs. These grasses are low maintenance and easy to grow. Due to their tropical origins, bermudagrasses a very tolerant to high heat. In contrast, they become dry and brittle during the winter.

You don’t need to have a green thumb to care for Zoysia grasses! The drought tolerant sod is very durable and beginner friendly. Zoysia grasses flourish with almost any combination of water and sunlight. This sod is low maintenance but incredibly durable. Zoysia is resistant to diseases, insects, and weeds. Its soft texture is very appealing for homeowners, making it a popular selection for lawns.
