Choosing the Best Florida Sod Farm for Commercial Properties

Feb 6, 2015 | Lawn Care

When choosing a commercial sod farm to supply turfgrass for your hotel, golf course, or other types of business, it is important to take into consideration several aspects of your needs when it comes to grass choices. The amount of foot traffic, expected lawn maintenance, and desired aesthetics are all things to consider when choosing the sod for your commercial property.

A good Central Florida sod farm can help you make these important decisions for your commercial property. Here are some things to look for when searching for a sod farm:

Local Sod Farm

Choosing a local sod farm for your commercial property is the best option for a few reasons.

  • It will cost less when you minimize transportation.
  • Sod is at risk of being damaged the longer it’s in transportation. 
  • Local sod farms have turfgrass already accustomed to the local climate.

At Lake Jem Farms, we have three full service sod farm distribution centers located around South and Central Florida. We can handle any job, in bulk or singularity.

Variety of Turfgrass

When looking for re-sodding or adding new sod, the type of turfgrass can make all of the difference for your property. Lake Jem Farms carries the best types of Central Florida grasses such as St. Augustine, Bahia, Bermuda, and Empire Turf Zoysia. All of these grasses are perfect for the Florida weather but can be better for some properties over other. See which type of grass is best for your property here.
