Don’t assume that your lawn simply needs more water because it is starting to turn yellow or brown. It could be a sign of a soil pH problem.

Soil pH is a measure of how acid or alkaline your soil is. Soil pH is a major influence whether your grass will grow to a dark lush green or if it is wilting and turns yellow.

To grow best, your soil pH should be 6.5-7.0. This can be tested using a soil test kit available at most garden centers. If your soil pH is too high or too low, your lawn can’t absorb and make use of nutrients and fertilizers.

Once you know your soil pH, your local garden center can provide you with the best treatment for your lawn.

For a great looking lawn, always start with premium sod from your local sod farm. Far West Turf Farm is your Vancouver, WA sod farm.

It should be harvested the Same Day You Will Install it.

You can buy your sod from a big box store that stores pallets of sod drying in the sun for days at a time. Buying from a big box store may be very convenient, but you give up quality. Why risk installing stressed grass that won’t look as good. Our advice… Always buy your sod from a sod farm.

You should purchase your sod, farm direct. By buying from your local sod farm, you will get fresh sod, harvested the same day you want to install it.

Buying sod from your local Vancouver, WA sod farm, Far West Turf couldn’t be easier if you live in Portland, Oregon or South West Washington. Simply call us and let us know how much you need and make a payment on your credit card.
