Since the early 1990s we have been developing and marketing superior turf varieties. We are focused on bringing innovative selections to the horticultural industry, for the benefit of the individuals who plant, cultivate, sell, install, maintain and enjoy them. Our products are the result of extensive industry experience in the identification, development and marketing of improved varieties, as well as a unique global network of breeding and production resources.
Sod Solutions has identified, tested and introduced improved turfgrass selections since 1994 that raise the expectations of consumers, landscape architects, contractors, golf course superintendents, sportsturf managers, and turfgrass producers – almost anyone who values superior aesthetics and functionality in the landscape. Palmetto St. Augustine, EMPIRE Turf, Celebration Bermudagrass and Sapphire St. Augustine have become industry standards, while Bella Bluegrass, Discovery Bermuda, Latitude 36 & NorthBridge Bermuda, and Geo Zoysia are establishing themselves as true performers. Our turfgrasses vary in color, texture and other features, but they all have one thing in common: lower water and maintenance needs.
Sod Solutions provides extensive technical and marketing support for all products. We apply strict quality control measures to ensure that all turfgrasses are produced from approved, genetically pure sources. All products are certified as required by local certifying entities. These patented varieties are grown and sold only through networks of licensed producers, which ensures that the products are readily available across the U.S. at competitive prices.
Sod Solutions is dedicated to meeting the needs of warm and cool season turfgrass producers, nurserymen, landscape professionals and their customers by developing, licensing and marketing improved turfgrass varieties.
Our Grass is Green
Ideal for home, golf, sports and commercial applications, Sod Solutions’ turfgrass varieties all offer improved aesthetics, higher performance and reduced irrigation and maintenance needs.
