|Consistently the Highest Quality Sod – Thicker, Finer, and Greener
- Marathon is comprised of proprietary grass varieties, which have been rigorously tested for adaptability to Southern California climate and soils.
- Ideal growing conditions in coastal Ventura County result in healthy, vigorous sod with no risk of plant damage from extreme weather conditions.
- All fields are laser leveled to be perfectly flat prior to each planting. As a result, sod is perfectly uniform in thickness and moisture at harvest.
- Higher seed rates and closer plant spacing using our patented seeder result in denser turf.
- All fields are mowed with reel-type mowers as opposed to rotary mowers resulting in grass that is cleanly cut with a scissors-like action, not chopped or torn.
- Marathon is dark green naturally. We never use dye to cover weather damage, production shortcuts or genetic flaws.
- We produce ten varieties of turf to meet all your customer needs.
Consistently the Freshest Sod
- We are the only sod farm with our own vacuum refrigeration facility.
