We’ve been growing our registered premium sod for over 40 years at our 1,800 acre sod farm in Red Deer. We harvest and sell over 500 acres of sod every year for residential lawn care, commercial and golf course applications. Backed by our dedication to excellent customer service, our sod’s quality is maintained through extensive research and development, ensuring that only seed mixes with proven colour, winter hardiness and textures are used to grow our turf.
For full specifications and recommended uses of our sod types view our Sod Information Guide. We grow and sell the following sod types:
Blue Grass Premium Kentucky Sod: is grown from a registered blend made up of 80% Kentucky Blue Grass and 20% Creeping Red Fescue. This sod is our regular sod that is stocked daily throughout growing season.
Blue Grass Holiday Lawn: is a 100% Certified Dwarf Kentucky Blue Grass. New for 2017! We are the only Alberta sod grower with a truly dwarf Blue Grass. This sod is special order with a 2 day minimum notice and 3 pallet minimum order.
Blue Grass Fine Fescue Blend: is a mixture of 95% mixed Fescue and 5% Kentucky Blue Grass. This sod is special order with a 2 day minimum notice and 3 pallet minimum order.
Premium Kentucky Fairway Cut: is the same mixture as our premium Kentucky sod but is maintained at a 3/4″ height for golf course fairways. This sod is special order and is only available for purchase by Landscapers and Golf Courses. There is a 2 day minimum notice and 3 pallet minimum order.
Our sod grows on the sod farm fields for a full two years before being harvested. This ensures fullness and great root development allowing the grass to re-establish quickly after installation.
Each roll of premium sod is cut to 2 feet wide by 5 feet long , totalling 10 square feet and cut at a thickness of 1 to 1.5 inches thick (excludes fairway sod). Each pallet of sod contains 70 rolls or 700 square feet, however as little as one roll can be purchased. We also can cut Big roll for commercial and large scale projects. Each big roll is 3.5 feet by 103 feet, totalling 360 square feet.
