Specialty Turf Blends
Our Turf Producers' Select formulations are produced in blending facilities specializing in sod. The machinery is thoroughly cleaned and inspected between each batch. Separate equipment is used for sod bluegrass or sod tall fescue. Turf Producers' Select sod quality assurance continues through shipment as each pallet of sod seed is wrapped and segregated on the truck to further protect against potential cross contamination. With Turf Producers' Select, our attention to detail is second to none.
Kentucky Bluegrass Seed
Kentucky bluegrass, Poa pratensis, is the most commonly used cool-season grass. Most often, it can be found providing the landscape for golf courses, athletic fields, home lawns, and parks throughout the United States. The popularity of Kentucky bluegrass is due to its ability to thrive in hot and cool temperatures, tolerance to a variety of mowing heights, and need for only moderate fertilization and watering.
Kentucky bluegrass spreads through underground runners known as rhizomes. Its root system may grow to depths of up to one and a half feet, providing dense, lush turf characterized by high resistance to weeds.More Details
One of the most popular choices for overseeding, ryegrasses possess a superior ability to withstand stress and wear, making it ideal for golf courses and athletic fields. This cool-season grass is known for quick establishment and a rapid germination rate. These traits allow ryegrasses to serve as perfect seed compliments to use with later germinating species.
Bentgrass is able to survive under high-traffic, high-stress conditions and can withstand extremely close cutting heights. Because of these characteristics, it is only natural that bentgrass is widely used on a variety of golf courses including greens, tees, and fairways. Bentgrass is able to thrive in a variety of climates including cool, transitional, and arid. Bentgrass provides a dense surface resilient to weeds but must be fertilized and watered regularly to avoid harmful diseases and insects.
Bentgrass can be mowed at heights between 1/10 and 1/2 of an inch. It spreads via above ground runners called stolons or tillers (shoots from the crown).More Details
Seeded Seashore Paspalum
True to its name, seashore paspalum is known for its excellent salt tolerance and is most commonly found on golf courses and home lawns located in hot and humid coastal climates.
Seashore paspalum requires a minimal amount of fertilization and water. It can be mowed between one eighth and one half of an inch in height. Seashore paspalum has shown heightened performance in areas that are irrigated with effluent water or with naturally high salinity levels.More Details
Bermudagrass, Cynodon dactylon, is primarily a warm-season species performing best in southern United States climates at temperatures exceeding 50 degrees. Bermudagrass spreads aggressively via above-ground runners known as stolons, allowing it to withstand wear and recover rapidly from damage. This resilience makes bermudagrass ideal for golf courses, athletic fields and home lawns.
Bermudagrass falls dormant when temperatures dip below 50 degrees and may require overseeding. It requires moderate to high levels of water and fertilization and should be mowed at heights between one tenth of an inch and one and a half inches.More Details
Tall Fescue Grass Seed
Tall fescue, Festuca arundinacea, is a cool-season grass that establishes well in both partial sun and shady areas such as under trees. Tall fescue grass is most commonly found throughout the midsection and northern areas of the United States. Because of its resilience in high-traffic areas and excellent wear resistance, tall fescue is frequently used on athletic fields.
Tall fescue spreads by shoots from the crown known as tillers. It requires low to moderate fertilization and water with a recommended mowing height between two and four inches.More Details
Fine Fescue Grass Seed
Fine fescue is a cool-season grass ideal for golf course roughs in northern climates. It includes fine leaf types creeping red fescue, sheeps fescue, chewings fescue and hard fecsue. Although fine fescue is able to grow in partial shade and withstand periodic droughts, fine fescue is weakened in very hot temperatures and may require additional watering to survive through extreme highs that last longer than one week.
Fine fescue can be mowed down to a half inch or may go completely unmown. It requires low to moderate fertilization and water, except in high-temperature situations described above.More Details
Conservation, Reclamation & Native Seed
Native plants are those that naturally occur in a given habitat. A species that is native to one area of the world may not be native to another. However, native plants are generally well adapted to their particular environment and are more likely to thrive there. Once established, native plants provide an ecologically appropriate and environmentally sound habitat.
At Landmark Turf & Native Seed, we offer a complete and extensive selection of native seed and introduced seed species and varieties for reclamation, erosion control, mining, wetland, riparian, forestry and wildlife habitat. We custom blend and mix to meet Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) seed, utility right-of-way and mining reclamation seed specifications.
