3-D Premium Kentucky Bluegrass Sod
Ultra 3-D Kentucky Bluegrass is our most popular blend of sod which is used on sports fields, home lawns and parks throughout Ontario. 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.
Darker – A naturally darker turf that requires less fertilizer to stay looking healthy
Denser – Improved density will help compete with weeds
Dwarfer – Less vertical growth and canopy height equals less mowing.

Improved drought tolerance
Rhizomatous Tall Fescue
Rhizomatous Tall Fescue (RTF®) is a new type of tall fescue that produces rhizomes. It looks a lot like bluegrass but it needs 25-30% less water, has improved shade tolerance and is approved for use on LEED projects. RTF® initiates new grass growth underneath the soil, giving it the ability to repair itself and fill in bare spots.
Self-Repairing Turf – Fills in Open Areas in the Lawn by Means of Rhizomes • Knits the Lawn Together • Quickly Fills in Damaged or Open Spots with New Shoots of Grass
Strong, Deep Root System – Ability to Draw its Moisture From a Deep Profile • Excellent Drought and Heat Tolerance, Requires Less Irrigation • Excellent in Our Transition-Zone Climate

Bella is the world’s first dwarf, vegetative Bluegrass meaning it is sold as sod, not as seed. Bella is a bluegrass unlike any other bluegrass on the market. Bella is a quick grower laterally, but has very minimal vertical growth. The dwarf characteristic of Bella only allows it to grow to about 4″ in height, which means 50%-80% less mowing. Bella is a breakthrough in Bluegrass and turf technology and sets a new standard for Bluegrass aesthetics and performance.
