Use Us for Your Sod Installation Needs

There are many reasons use Green Mountain for sod installation:
  • Replacement Patches – You may need replacement sod for portions of your lawn due to inadequate watering or problems with lawn fungus (that sometimes creates those irritating circles).
  • Lawn Replacement – For many landscape redesigns, we’ll replace an entire lawn with new sod. This could be because the homeowner wanted a different type of grass that fit in better with the environment. In some cases the lawn is so unhealthy that it is best to start with a newer, healthier lawn.
  • Landscape Redesign – Major landscaping redesign projects may cause the replacement of much of the yard with stone or rock elements. This may result in the need for fresh sod to fill in the areas not covered by hardscape.

Many people may not realize that there are actually quite a few different choices when it comes to sod for your lawn. We’re proud to offer Turf Master Sod to our clients. Turf Master Sod offers a variety of sod choices that work well with Colorado’s climate.
There are many factors that you must consider when making a turf choice for your lawn:
  • Appearance
  • Grass Density
  • Root Depth
  • Watering Needs
  • Growth Rate
  • Soil Requirements
  • Shade Tolerance

Enviroturf™

Turf Master Enviroturf™ is our new drought tolerant turfgrass blend. It is a very dense, hardy blend of turf with many appealing qualities. It contains endophytes which are the best natural way to ward off insects, and has a very deep root system, making it a very drought tolerance plant.
  • 30%-40% less water than
  • Kentucky Bluegrass
  • 50% less nitrogen than Kentucky Bluegrass (less fertilizing)
  • Thrives in Sun or Shade
  • Great for High Traffic Areas

EnviroBlue™

Turf Master EnviroBlue™ germinates quickly, is low growing, and has a dark green appearance in spring that progresses to a bright blue-green color. It has many characteristics that set it apart from other turf.
  • Low Watering Requirements
  • Low Nitrogen Requirements (less fertilizing)
  • Reduced Growth Rate (less mowing and maintenance)
  • Great for droughty, acidic or infertile soils

90-10 Fescue Blend

This blend has a leafy base with ascending culms 1’ to 3’ tall, and wide dark green leaves. It produces a large volume of deep, coursely fibrous roots. It grows well in western states in Spring, Summer, and Fall at higher latitudes. It will grow well on all soils with adequate moisture.
  • Drought Tolerant
  • Great for moderate saline and acidic soils
  • Tolerates poorly drained soils, winter flooding, high water tables

Self Repairing Tall Fescue

Tall Fescue has been converted by breeders into a low maintenance, drought tolerant turf for mid-continental areas. Tall Fescue conserves on irrigation requirements because of its deep root system. Additionally, breeders have dramatically altered the stature of tall fescue by converting it from a lanky, tall growing forage into a fine textured, low growing turf.
  • Low Maintenance (less mowing)
  • Drought Tolerant
  • Disease Resistant

Canadian Blue Fescue™

Canadian Blue Fescue™ is a very drought tolerant, low maintenance grass, with a very fine leaf texture. Environmentally sensitive sites and low traffic turf areas can both benefit by using Canadian Blue Fescue™. Fescue hybrids have been traditionally viewed as ornamental grasses. Canadian Blue Fescue™ is well adapted to a mown turf situation or can be left to grow tall for a more natural appeal.
  • Low Maintenance (less mowing)
  • Very Drought Tolerant – Most
  • Tolerant Fescue
  • Best for Low Traffic Areas
  • Shade Tolerant
  • Best for well-drained soils

Colorado Buffalo Blend™

Colorado Buffalo Blend™ grass is a combination of Buffalo grass, Bluegrama, Chewing Fescue, and Canadian Blue Grass. Both the Buffalo and Bluegrama are warm season,native varieties that can require very little water and maintenance. The Canadian Blue Grass and Chewing Fescue are cool season, low water, low growing turf grasses that have been added to give stability during harvest while adding color in the Spring and Fall. Remember that a pure warm season turf will be mostly dormant from Fall to Spring.
  • Native grass
  • Best for Low Traffic Areas
  • Dormant from Fall – Spring
  • Low, Slow Growing Turf
  • Highly Drought Tolerant

Nature’s Prairie Turf™

Nature’s Prairie Turf™ is a Turf Master Trade Mark Blend of indigenous and native grasses. This blend is a low growing, slow growing turf native to North America. It has good winter color and shade tolerance, and great drought tolerance with the capability of going semi-dormant during drought or hot summer weather.
  • Highly Drought Tolerant
  • Low Growing, Slow Growing Turf
  • Great for Infertile Soils
  • For elevations of 5,000 – 10,000 feet
  • Great for High Traffic Areas

Kentucky Bluegrass

Many of our varieties of Bluegrass are well suited to the West because they are drought-resistant, display an excellent green color, have a fine leaf texture, and recover quickly from wear. Bluegrass possesses a moderate traffic tolerance and wear resistance, and has the ability to recover quickly from occasional abuse because natural rhizome structures will quickly fill in damaged areas. Our improved varieties of Bluegrasses green up early in the spring and perform well both in summer and winter. Bluegrass thrives in full sun and can tolerate up to approximately 30% shade
  • Drought Resistant
  • Can Handle Moderate Traffic
  • Thrives with sunlight
