Listen to what people are saying
Having built a new house recently and attempting to establish a lawn around the house last summer was no easy task. Finally giving in and looking at sod I spoke to a couple of businesses that had and installed sod.
I called Ideal Turf and spoke with Andy about what I was looking for. He set up a time and came out to the house to see what he might be able to offer me. His recommendation of the RTF sod along with the price sold me. As the weather was still in the summer months Andy suggested the best time to install this. As the time got near he moved the date out a bit insure I would get the best growth and stand with least cost of watering due to heat and moisture opportunity.
I have no regrets with the selection of both the sod type and Ideal Turf. The sod looks great. In fact, since them having this installed I have installed additional sod around the house as well.
Buying from Ideal Turf was the right selection and I continue to purchase seed and other turf-related products from them.
When we finished building a new house last year, I was anxious to start on a new lawn. Our previous home had been sodded with Kentucky Bluegrass from Ideal Turf and was a great success. However, our new home was not set up with an irrigation system so I was skeptical about planting bluegrass in our big yard. Ideal Turf introduced me to their RTF seed, which is more heat tolerant, easy to seed, and establishes fast.
This was the first time I tried seeding a lawn. Ideal Turf gave me easy to follow instructions and set me up with their Starter Fertilizer along with their straw blankets. Less than 2 weeks later and I was already mowing! The lawn established very fast, and in no time, was getting thicker and thicker. I followed up with overseeding in the fall and planted a second area at the same time, and this spring my yard looked amazing! I hauled black dirt into top off the existing clay in front of the house but had spread no topsoil in the backyard before seeding. The RTF seed grew fast in both places. It made little difference, if any, starting the new seed in clay or rich topsoil. All bare spots have filled in on their own after 12 months, and with very little watering, the yard looks great.
If you want a yard that looks great, east to grow and stays green through the hot months with less water, give RTF a try. Ideal Turf was very helpful and answered all my questions giving me an education on grass seed and fertilizer. I would like to add if you would rather sod than seed because you want an instant yard, don’t be afraid to seed. I am 100% satisfied with our new lawn and how fast it established. Seeding it myself saved me money and I have the same end result as sod with maybe even a better root system. Thanks, Ideal Turf!

The RTF is everything you said and more, thick, hearty, soft and a beautiful deep green. Thank you for a wonderful experience and the beautiful front yard and we are anxiously awaiting getting the backyard done this spring!!
