A Remarkable Idea to Preserve and Sustain The Etowah Valley
In 1999, our CEO envisioned a way to fulfill his family's promise to preserve and sustain this fertile land: growing turf. The sandy loam soil combined with North Georgia's temperature fluctuations is a sharp contrast with other areas where turf is grown. The end result is turf more compatible with a wider range of geographies, temperatures, sun, shade, and soil types.
Over the years, a variety of grasses have been successfully grown here. Each variety has not only enriched the quality of lawns and properties throughout Metro Atlanta, but also the preservation and sustainability of the Etowah River Valley. The sod we grow now includes two premium zoysia kinds of grass, classic Tifway 419 Bermuda, and the addition of a premium Bermuda sod called Tahoma 31.
A Family's 150-Year Relationship With "Good Land"
The Shaw Family is well known across Georgia for their leadership in the flooring business and other enterprises. What many don't realize is their 150-year relationship to a unique place in Bartow County... 500 acres of fertile farm land along the Etowah River. The family's commitment to this land near the historic Etowah Indian Mounds is to protect its archeological significance and preserve its heritage as a farm in the community.
The combination of sandy loam soil near the riverbed makes our sod nutrient rich with minerals from the Etowah River.
River floods brought sandy loam layers more than 15 feet deep. Historic mines across Bartow county include Iron, Graphite, and Sulfur just to name a few. Evidence shows that people occupied the farm site from the Woodland period around 200 BC to about 1600 AD. Their lives were enriched by minerals, productive soil, and excellent growing seasons.
