Learn About Sustainable Summer Sod

BELMONT, N.C. – Because the Carolinas are in a transitional climatic zone, cool-season grasses, such as fescue are getting harder to grow and warm-season grasses such as Bermuda and Zoysia are becoming more common. Learn about turf grass and how to make your lawn the envy of your neighbors at Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden’s upcoming First Tuesday Presentation: Sustainable Summer Sod on Aug. 6, noon to 1 p.m.

Tom Fox of John Deere Landscapes and J.P. Hayes from Buy Sod, will share tips on selecting the right sod and maintaining your lawn throughout the year, especially in the warm summer months. Together this knowledgeable pair of lawn care professionals can answer your questions about growing your lawn and keeping it healthy and beautiful during the whole year.

Buy Sod was founded in 2002 when three North Carolina sod producers came together to create it. Buy Sod now operates eight production sod farms in the Carolinas and Virginia and distributes high quality turf grasses to Lowe’s Home Improvement, Home Depot, and John Deere Landscapes as well as hundreds of big-box retailers throughout the United States.

John Deere Landscapes is a wholesale landscape supply distributor with an extensive line of irrigation, turf and landscape supplies.
