Turfgrass producers give back to community

Published online: Apr 05, 2016 Golf News

Over 22,000 square feet of freshly harvested turfgrass sod found a home at six new residential properties in Houston’s Harrell Park subdivision thanks to a joint effort by TPI, Project EverGreen and Houston Habitat for Humanity.

The turfgrass was installed along with oak trees and an assortment of azaleas, boxwoods, gardenias and ferns.  Mulch was also added around the homes to create landscape beds that complemented the new turfgrass, and created green spaces the new owners and their families could enjoy.

The sod was harvested during equipment demonstrations at TPI’s Field Day at All Seasons Turf Farm in Brookshire, Texas. Thanks goes to the generosity of Irene Gavranovic Sipes and her husband Scott of the host farm and exhibiting members that included Advanced Equipment Sales, Brouwer Kesmac, FireFly Equipment, Northwest Tillers, Progressive Turf Equipment, Redexim North America, Trebro Manufacturing and Trimax Mowing Systems.
