Greens-Quality Bentgrass

Introduction

Grown on fumigated, 90% sand-based soil that is virtually identical to USGA putting green specifications, our Greens-Quality Bentgrass sod removes the need for removing the soil before installation and minimizes layering problems. And, as one of the southern-most bentgrass sod growers in the country, Buy Sod provides premium bentgrass that is already adapted to the heat and humidity of our transition-zone climate.

We offer the most popular bentgrass varieties and blends, or you can contract with us to grow the blend of your choice. For tees, we can also provide bentgrass grown on native soil. Let Buy Sod put you on course for championship quality!

Buy Sod’s Greens-Quality Bentgrass is a cool-season variety suited for Hardiness Zones 6a, 6b, 7a, and 7b.
