Turfgrass Sod

Freshly Harvested

Turfgrass Sod

Turf sales at Green Thumb Farms began in 2005. Rich soils found in Maine’s Saco River Valley coupled with our pledge to use the finest seed available result in the kind of quality we are committed to providing our customers.

Why Green Thumb Farms?

  • Our sod is fully matured.  This makes the installation process easier because the sod won’t tear or fall apart as the rolls are installed.  This minimizes waste of materials and man hours.
  • In the heat of the summer we harvest overnight to assure that fresh sod is arriving at your jobsite at the quoted time.  No waiting for delivery, time is money.
  • Competitive pricing & superior customer service.

Our Varieties:

Currently we offer three varieties of turf; Kentucky Bluegrass, a Tall Fescue Blend and a Fine Fescue Blend. Kentucky Bluegrass is a thick, dense turfgrass well known for its self-repairing and spreading capabilities. These features make it very successful on sports fields, residential lawns, golf roughs, parks, and many other areas. Kentucky Bluegrass is a full sun variety that is moderately drought tolerant, regular watering is recommended. A Fescue Blend is a slightly more drought tolerant and shade tolerant variety that adapts well to sunny or partial shade areas. The Fescue Blends can also stand less fertilization and irrigation than bluegrass, making them well suited for low traffic areas such as parking lot islands, golf roughs, around buildings, and other partially shady areas. Check out our sell sheet for more details.

Grown in Downeast Maine, our native sods are a great way to add a unique look to any landscaping project. Click here for more information.
