GHG Premium Bluegrass
Greenhorizons Premium Bluegrass is a combination of research chosen Kentucky bluegrass cultivars, selected through years of trials. This blend is suited to a variety of locations and applications from golf courses and sports fields to landscapes. The varieties that are blended into GHG Premium Bluegrass are chosen for their high density, ability to be maintained at low cutting heights and their incredible, deep green color.
Greenhorizons Camel Grass is a drought tolerant blend of carefully selected Kentucky Bluegrass Cultivars. Through years of research, we have found several grass varieties that are incredibly resilient while retaining the aesthetic benefits of Kentucky Bluegrass. Greenhorizons is on the leading edge of environmentally sustainable ground cover solutions. We are constantly trying to reduce our environmental impact through water conservation and proper nutrient management. This blend is certified by the Turfgrass Water Conservation Alliance.
Greenhorizons Dwarf Low-Mow Bluegrass has been developed as an IPM-friendly alternative to bentgrass on golf course fairways & tees and for close-cut sports fields. This specially selected blend is grown on sandy loam soils and carefully maintained at a height of one inch. The cultivars selected for GHG Dwarf Low-Mow Bluegrass have the same great characteristics as our Premium Bluegrass, but are better suited to close mowing.
Greenhorizons exclusive Tees and Fairways Bentgrass blend is a mixture of several cultivars carefully selected from years of experience as excellent multi-purpose varieties. Our Tees and Fairways Bentgrass combination results in a turf that is exceptionally heat, cold, drought and disease resistant. It has broader leaves and can be maintained slightly higher than our Greens Bentgrass.

GHG Greens Bentgrass blends are the product of industry leading bentgrass varieties combined with centuries of turfgrass cultivation experience. Each of these varieties has been consistently rated amongst the top bentgrasses in the National Turfgrass Evaluation Program (NTEP) field trials for performance under pressure. Designed to create true greens surfaces with excellent resistance to heat stress, drought stress and wear, our blends also boast outstanding disease resistance.

Greenhorizons Pure Fine Fescue is a low-maintenance blend of Creeping Red, Hard and Chewings Fescues which are heat, drought and shade tolerant. This blend is a fine-textured turf with low fertility requirements and is enhanced with endophytes to resist insect pests.
Our Pure Fine Fescue is specifically blended for specialty applications including sloped out-of-play areas on golf courses and the back faces of fairway bunkers. The varieties in this blend are best suited to low traffic, low maintenance areas and can be left to grow long for a “links-style” appearance.
Eco-Turf, a low-maintenance mixture of fine fescues, Kentucky bluegrass and microclover, produces a tight stand of turf that aggressively out-competes weeds. The microclover in this mixture is bred to be small and provides for lower fertility requirements. Eco-Turf maintains green color even through periods of summer stress and boasts equivalent wear tolerance to standard, all-grass turfs. Ideal applications for this product are hospital, municipal & commercial office building green spaces, high-end estate lawns and those near environmentally sensitive areas.
Is established using Greenhorizons Sod Farms Leading Edge Turfgrass Technology. It is a combination of the latest proven Kentucky Bluegrass cultivars selected through years of research. Research is evaluated from the National Turfgrass Evaluation Program (NTEP) alongside Greenhorizons Sod Farms’ own research and testing to choose the best varieties of Kentucky Bluegrass for Southern Ontario.
The earth has been good to us, but we haven't always been good to it. Luckily we can help restore our precious planet with something as simple as turfgrass - the earth's living skin. Turfgrass, like most other plants, takes in carbon dioxide and produces oxygen through photosynthesis! Our lawns can be great carbon sinks and we hope to leave every site much greener than we found it.
The benefits of having a beautiful lawn go far beyond aesthetics. Creating something beautiful with your landscape is incredibly rewarding for you and the environment. When it comes to installing sod, the rewards are practically immediate. A well maintained lawn and landscape can enhance ta property's "curb appeal" adding as much as 15 percent to the value of a home. There are hundreds of scientific papers online documenting the many benefits that turfgrass brings to our environment.
Turfgrass traps and removes dust and dirt from the air, like a giant, living, filter. Also, in terms of oxygen production, 2500 square feet of lawn can absorb carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, and release enough oxygen for a family of four to breathe.
Nature's Air Conditioner
On a hot summer day, lawns will be 30 degrees cooler than asphalt and 14 degrees cooler than bare soil. The front lawns of eight houses have the cooling effect of about 70 tons of air conditioning. That's amazing when the average home has an air conditioner with just a three or four ton capacity.
A Natural Water Filter
Runoff water in urban areas carries many pollutants. Turfgrass acts as a natural filter, reducing particulate pollution by purifying the water passing through its root zone.
Soil Erosion Control
A sodded lawn will absorb greater amounts of rain than a seeded lawn; even after three years of growth. The clean, gentle strength of turfgrass is the most cost-effective method for controlling wind and water erosion.
Health and Wellness
For backyard ball games or the Super Bowl, athletes of all sizes prefer the green cushion of turfgrass. The soft resilient surface that turfgrass provides is the safest and least expensive place to play.
