Brookmeade’s Sod Products

Located in Central Virginia, Brookmeade grows Turf Type Tall Fescue with its own South Anna seed blend, as well as two varieties of Zoysia grass. Fescue is what most people think of when they think of grass. Zoysia is a summer grass that does very well in yards with full sun.

Brookmeade sells Oregon Certified Sod Quality Seed. It is the same seed we use to grow our Fescue fields.

Turf Type Tall Fescue

is a cool-season grass

Available all year, ideally the best time to install Fescue is in September. However, it is perfectly acceptable to install most of the year with the exception of July and August. Fescue stresses in the hot summer months of the Richmond area. Fescue grows best in the Fall and Spring. Fescue will root when temperatures are above 32°. Tall Fescue is a broader-blade grass and slightly coarser texture than Kentucky bluegrass sod. Tall Fescue sod is moderately drought and shade tolerant and performs well throughout Virginia. It is perfectly ok to install Fescue on ground that is frozen. Once it thaws it is more moisture for the grass. Fescue is adapted to a wide range of soil conditions and management programs. All grasses newly installed or established need Sun, Water, and Nutrients to thrive. See Sod Tips watering guidelines for the first 2 weeks. Once rooted, Fescue needs 1.5 inches of water a week.

Brookmeade cultivates Meyer Z-52 and Zenith varieties of Zoysia. A great product, Zoysia is drought-tolerant, disease-resistant, and chokes out weeds. Zoysia requires little maintenance. The grass spreads by above-ground stems called stolons and underground stems called rhizomes. It is a slow spreader, easy to keep up with its growth. Brookmeade sells by the square yard or bag of plugs. The Zoysia plugs are approximately 1.5″ in diameter. Most of them are separated, although you may have to pull some apart. YOU do not have to cut them apart. The plugs are not anything like what you can get in the mail. Plugs planted 12” on center, the plugs will grow together as an established lawn in 3-4 years. Planting them closer together does not cut the time needed to get established. There are approximately 300 plugs in a bag. WE are green, we recycle our 50 lb. seed bags!
