Macon Turf Farm, Inc
Macon Turf Farm, Inc began serving Northeastern North Carolina in the Spring of 2004 and vowed to become a leader in customer service in the turf farm industry. We are a family-owned and operated business committed to growing and supplying premium, quality lawns. We have 2 locations---with our main location in Hertford, NC (Perquimans County) and a smaller location in Grandy, NC (Currituck County).
Tifway Bermuda is a popular warm-season grass. It is a dense, fine-textured, hybrid grass. This type of grass requires full sun, and has a good heat tolerance, wear resistance and will recover quickly if damaged. This is an excellent grass for high traffic areas, as it is used on sports fields and golf course.
Tall Fescue is a cool-season grass that grows strongly in the fall and spring, slowing down and stopping growth in the warm summer months. Tall Fescue thrives in sun or medium shade. It has good disease resistance, drought tolerance and cold tolerance; tolerates moderate traffic and requires mimimum care.
Centipede is slow-growing, warm-season, coarse textured grass that is well suited for low pH soils. It has a yellow-green color. Centipede requires very little fertilizer and handles drought well. It is fairly shade tolerant, but is best suited for areas that get full sunlight exposure. Centipede is not as tolerant to salt as Bermuda.
Compadre Zoysia is a warm-season grass that has a medium width leaf and dark green color. It is very drought tolerant, has low needs for fertilizers, and has a slow growth rate which requires less lawn mowing that other grasses. It has excellent wear and tear capabilities, and resistance to lawn pests and disease, and a natural resistance to lawn weeds once the turf is fully established.
Frequently Asked Questions
