Landscaping with Sod in Arizona

Thursday, March 19th, 2009

Like anything else, landscaping is all about goals. What type of sod is right for your Arizona lawn? What do you want your yard to look like? Maybe you want a balanced yard or something a bit more organic and off center. Or, maybe your goal is energy maintenance. You’d then want to choose plants that will provide shade, prevent weed growth, and use as few resources as possible. Figuring out your goals will start you in a direction right away. (more…)

Reel Mowers and Sod in Arizona

Thursday, March 19th, 2009

This isn’t your fathers push mower. Reel mowers generally bring to mind the manual mowers of old that were set at a certain height and impossible to use with tall grass. While the tall grass argument is still valid, many reel mowers today are extremely high quality and meant to be used with a variety of other types of grass.


The mowers are so precise the consumer is able to set the final height of the grass that they would prefer down to the 1/8 of an inch. While you will pay for such precision, the results are usually worth it, especially for those who take great pride in their Arizona sod lawn.

Not only that, but using a reel mower is going green. Because gas mowers use a mixture of oil and fuel, their emissions are a lot dirtier. In fact, the emissions from a gas lawn mower do more to harm our air then 40 total cars per gallon of gas consumed. While an electric lawn mower is a step in the right direction, they are still noisy, have inconvenient cords, and are much bulkier than reel mowers.

To understand why reel mowers are so much better than their older counterparts, we must understand some of the new manufacturing behind them. The image on the right is a reel mower manufactured by a company named Brill who specializes in reel mowers. Weighing only 17 pounds, the Luxus 38 is light enough to pick up with one arm and uses machined ball bearings to give a smooth roll.

As long as you regularly maintain your lawn, you can turn what is normally a dirty chore into a meditative practice. Imagine being able to mow your Arizona sod lawn in near silence, only being able to hear the grass being cleanly clipped. It’s something most people don’t do, and it can change your entire view of mowing the lawn.

Evergreen Turf is an Arizona sod company that has become the major sod provider not just for homeowners and landscapers, but for Arizona’s demanding golf courses and sports facilities.
