EMERALD SOD FARMS HAS ALL YOUR SOD NEEDS
ESF TURF GRASS SOD
Emerald Sod Farms grows its sod from seeds that are certified sod quality and certified weed, pest, disease free and annually inspected by the Colorado Department of Agriculture. The varieties selected for each of our ESF grass blends are the very best for the Denver Metro, Front Range and the Rocky Mountain Regions. There is no perfect sod for every need, but through the years Emerald Sod Farms continues to grow better turf grass sod by improving color, durability and finding varieties that are more disease-resistant and use less water and fertilizer. All of our sod is grown on sandy loam soil, which is ideal for promoting the health and vitality of our grasses and the success of your turf grass project.
We have put our ESF turf grass sod at elevations as high as 9,000 feet and as hot and dry as Shadow Creek Golf Course in Las Vegas. Emerald Sod Farms has worked on installations so steep that our installation crews had to use ropes to secure themselves as they laid the turf grass. We have even done installations on rooftops!
Emerald Sod Farms turf grass sod is harvested as small rolls of 10 square feet (2 ft x 5 ft) and large rolls of 250 square feet (2 ft x 125 ft). A pallet of sod contains 54 small rolls or 540 square feet. No project is too little or too large! Our largest project to date is five million square feet.
ESF is looking for that six million square foot project… so give us a call if you have one!
