March and the Miracle League

March is almost over having ushered out the last shred of winter. The seductive 70 degree weather is impossible to resist. Bookstores are bringing out the gardening books by the box-full, spring training games are sold out, and the Phoenix zoo is packed.

Everyone wants to be outside all day, so it’s the perfect time to start transitioning your lawn and getting it summer ready. We have a whole page on our website devoted to transitions. You can check that out here. You can also contact us any time via our online comment form, our Facebook page, or during office hours at 602-271-4266 with any questions about the process. Our expert staff will be happy to help.

All this sunshine and warm weather has kept us busy here at Southwest Sod. We are now on Twitter, where we’ll be keeping you up to date on places we’re greening up, the latest research on fertilizing and watering, and what’s going on in the residential and sports turf industries. You’ll find lots of great information and news, so become a follower today.

One of the things you’ll find there is our attendance last week at the Grand Opening of the Miracle League of Arizona’s Dan Haren Field in Scottsdale. This field is a labor of love from Arizona corporations and businesses to children with disabilities or impairments who have always dreamed of playing baseball on a real ball field. The facility is a beautiful replication of a big-league facility and will be a huge blessing to Arizona children and their families. The field itself is a synthetic material so that it is wheel-chair accessible, but Southwest Sod was honored to contribute the outlying turf areas. The Grand Opening on March 22 was a wonderful event and we were thrilled to participate.
