For Metro Vancouver & the Lower Mainland Area.
We sell and deliver residential Sod for lawns throughout BC’s Lower Mainland. For instructions on how to install a lawn go to Installation.
Starting with quality sod is the first step in having a lush green lawn. You can count on Highland Turf Farms to deliver quality sod, locally grown from a blend of grasses chosen to give you the best lawn for the Lower Mainland BC climate.
CREATING THE PERFECT LAWN.
The first decision in creating your lawn is to choose how to achieve it – to seed it or sod it. It is also relatively inexpensive. However, much time is needed to wait for seed germination and for plants to fill in. If it rains heavily, your new lawn may get washed away. You may need to go through the process several times and may end up with nothing but frustration.
CHOOSING THE RIGHT KIND OF SOD.
Highland Turf Farms uses a seed blend that best matches soil conditions and weather conditions in the Lower Mainland. When it comes to residential sod, you can trust Highland, we have been providing Vancouver and area residential sod since 1978. Highland Turf Farms prides themselves on providing uncompromising quality and the best customer service.
Residential sod provides an instant carpet of green. You could go from bare soil to lush green lawn in just hours. It is a healthy and mature lawn when installed. Sod is grown under expert conditions using top quality seed blends. Sod also after being installed requires little maintenance. All you need to do is just water, mow, and fertilize as needed and your lawn will remain healthy. Sod can be installed practically anywhere. Sod is also useful to stop soil erosion and water pollution where rain would wash away both seed and soil.
CHOOSING BETWEEN SAND & LOAM.
Highland Turf Farm sells both sand based and loam-based sod. Sand-based residential sod rolls are easier to deal with during rainy seasons. You can lay sod almost year-round in Lower Mainland BC, and anyone who lives here knows in the spring and fall it can rain a lot. If you use loam sod, it gets to be a muddy experience. However, the downside of installing sand-based sod is that it will require more water for the entire life of the lawn. This may not be good if you have a very sunny yard.
The advantage of loam-based sod is that it requires less watering than sand-based sod. For this reason, loam-based sod is the most popular. The rolls are also more durable during the process of handling them during the sod installation process.
ACCORDING TO THE BC MINISTRY OF AGRICULTURE…
BC grows 1000 hectares of sod annually.
Now, the selection of the turfgrass species is dependent on the particular species or variety, market demand and the adaptation to the environment where the sod will be planted. At Highland Turf we use a blend of grasses that are specifically tailored to suit the needs of Lower Mainland lawns.
Highland Turf Farms has been supplying residential sod in the Lower Mainland since 1978. Our goal is to provide the best residential sod for the local climate. Our residential sod is grown under carefully monitored conditions to provide you with the best possible product. Highland grows residential sod from a special blend of grass seeds which are suited to the local climate and local soil conditions.
No compromise. Highland offers the best residential sod because Highland Turf Farms reputation has been built on supplying consistent, quality products and fair value for customers looking for residential sod. Highland Turf Farms does not cut rolls short to sell more sod or artificially deflate the price. When we sell a yard of turf – you get 9 feet, not 8.5 feet. Remember, you have spent a huge amount of money on your land – cutting corners on the sod you dress that land with devalues the appearance of your property. Highland Turf Farms sells quality turf or sod. Settle for nothing less.
GET WHAT YOU DESERVE! WHY SETTLE FOR LESS?
When you order from Highland Turf Farm, you get full 9-foot rolls. Some of our competitors tell their customers to order 30% more sod than their measurements say. This is because they supply 8.5-foot rolls, and some of the rolls they supply might be unusable. If you are paying for 30% more sod, the difference in the price between sod companies that undercut sod prices is not comparing apples to apples…or their sod to our sod!
