Any experienced turf manager can tell you that site preparation and laying the sod is only half of the job. How the turf is managed just after installation can drastically affect time-to-use of a site.
In recent years, the Greenhorizons group has taken what they know about turf and developed the ProXstablishment service to take the hassle and worry out of not only the site preparation and sod installation, but also the care until establishment.
The crew at Greenhorizons welcomes the opportunity to use their knowledge and resources from years of producing and installing sod; using proven fertilizer blends, specialized mowers, irrigation equipment and custom installation machinery and utilizing the massive knowledge base of their many key employees.
If you have a large area to be constructed or renovated, but you lack the available resources to do the job , then the ProXstablishment service is the perfect solution. When every day of the growing season counts, why waste a moment struggling? The key element of establishing sod successfully is taking full advantage of every growing day in the season; the ProXstablishment service accomplishes this. The ProXstablishment service is available with the installation of any Greenhorizons sod. The typical ProXstablishment time frame extends six weeks after installation and the cost ranges from $.60 to $3.00 per meter. The service includes:
Site installation logistics Water infrastructure and management Soil testing and pre-plant fertilization Minimum of two additional fertilizer applications Mowing 2-3 times a week Guaranteed results
After the ProXstablishment service period you are guaranteed to have turf that is:
Healthy Lush Vigorously growing Shows no visible seams or gaps.
