Grass seed is one of the most important factors in growing a quality sod. Seed selections are done with great care. Seed varieties are tested for drought resistance, vigorous growth, color, density, and disease and insect resistance.  Adaptability for the regions climatic conditions including extreme temperature variations is a major factor in seed selection. In a region without abundant rainfall, water requirements become extremely important. New and improved seed varieties are selected each year to produce exceptional grass seed blends.
