Sod Grass Varieties

Midiron Sod

Midiron Sod Grass

It’s tough. It’s durable. It doesn’t take much work. Midiron is the most popular type of sod grass variety in Arizona. It’s the perfect dessert variety because of its drought tolerance, resiliency under heavy traffic, quick recovery, and easy transitions. It is the ideal type of sod for commercial jobs where little maintenance and high traffic are factors. Midiron can be mowed with either a reel or sharp rotary mower.

Tifgreen Sod

Tifgreen Sod Grass

Tifgreen is the king of putting greens. Its slender, bright green blades give this variety the manicured look that greenskeepers and golf-managers value. Tifgreen sod is heat and traffic tolerant and repairs quickly, making it a great grass for a short manicured look without the golf course maintenance. It can endure very low mowing heights but doesn’t require it. It is best maintained with a reel mower.

Tifway Sod

Tifway Sod Grass

Tougher than Tifgreen and more sophisticated than Midiron, the Tifway variety has a very dense, medium-fine leaf texture with an aggressive growth habit and excellent traffic tolerance. Tifway is recommended for an active backyard and is best maintained with a reel mower.

Services

Sod by pond with palm trees

We’ve been growing and delivering sod in since 1985 and today we bring a variety of resources to any landscaping job – large or small.

Installation

We provide high-level installation services. Our crews will lay and roll your sod in a timely and professional manner, leaving your job site or home in pristine condition.

Small Rolls

We custom cut to your specific needs. Our rolls come in 10 square foot increments. Each roll is 2 feet wide and 5 feet long and weighs approximately 25-30 pounds.

Big Rolls

If you need to sod a wide and relatively flat area, big rolls are a good choice for you. These rolls are 42 inches wide and can span 100 feet or more, covering big areas quickly with fewer seams.

Stolons

An alternative to sod, planting stolons is another way to establish turf for your project. Stolons are grass stems for hybrid bermuda turf. They are harvested from nursery stock at our farm and shipped in bushel totes or bags to be spread manually, hydraulically, or mechanically. The best time to plant stolons is in the summer, ideally between May and July. It takes 12 to 14 weeks for stolons to grow into a mature turf product, as long as proper maintenance techniques are followed.

Hydroseeding, Hydrostolonizing, Desert Revegetation

Using our hydroseeding equipment, we can apply bermudagrass seed, stolons, or custom desert seed blends to meet your job specifications. Using a water base, we mix seed or stolons with mulch, fertilizer, and tackifier to create a slurry that is sprayed out with our hydraulic equipment, creating a green mat layer that protects the seed or stolons from the harsh elements of the summer climate. The green mat layer will soon disappear as you water the planted area.
