About Us

AFH Sod Farm is a producer and distributor of quality turf-grass.  All of our sod is locally grown in the Charlotte, North Carolina area.  We have two sod farms.  Our Tall Fescue farm is located in Mooresville NC , with the second farm located in Chester SC, here we focus on the production of Bermuda 419.
 

AFH Sod Farm is open for business year round and is open to the public.  All of our sod is cut fresh per order.  Sod can be purchased by the individual roll or by the pallet.  All orders are call ahead at least 48 hours.  Pick-up and delivery services are available. 
 

Tall Fescue is a cool-season grass that works well in this area.  It is  dark green in color and has a medium size blade.  Due to its appearance  and ability to withstand foot traffic, fescue is perfect for a  residential yard or a commercial landscape.  Tall Fescue can adapt to  partial shade, however it does require mostly sun throughout the day.   Tall fescue does fairly well during drought conditions.  Because fescue  does not go into dormancy during the winter, it stays green all year  round.  Tall fescue requires regular maintenance to maintain its health  and appearance.
 

Bermuda 419 is a dense, rapidly spreading  growth quick recovery from injury, making is one of the most durable  hybrid Bermudas.  Tifway 419 tolerates close mowing and is highly  disease resistant.  For use on fairways, roughs, sport fields and  commercial and residential lawns.

Your satisfaction is our priority and we take pride in our work. We are prepared for any lawn care needs and will complete your requested tasks in a timely manner with detail and precision, and at a price you'll love. 

 

IMPORTANT!!

IF YOU DO NOT INSTALL YOUR SOD IN A TIMELY MANNER AND WATER IT ADEQUATELY UNTIL IT ROOTS IT WILL DIE!!
