As the chart demonstrates, our soil is virtually identical to USGA Putting Green specifications.  This eliminates the “layering” problems that can occur with bentgrass sod grown on heavier soils or soils not compatible with USGA greens mix. In addition, this makes the complicated process of washing the soil from the sod unnecessary.  We ship our bentgrass throughout the Southeast on refrigerated trucks when necessary.  We also have a professional installation crew that specializes in installing greens quality bentgrass sod in 42 inch wide big rolls using specialized "track" installation machines.   This produces fewer seams and quicker playability. Greens quality bentgrass sod is one of our specialties, so the next time your project calls for bentgrass, call on the professionals at Sandhill Turf.
