Madison+Main is excited to announce our newest client, Riverside Sod Farms. Located in Charles City, Virginia, Riverside Farm was founded in the early 1900s by Czechoslovakian immigrants and for almost 100 years, it was a beef cattle and grain farm. In 2000, fourth-generation Wells Hula enrolled in Virginia Tech’s Turf Management Program, where he learned the latest techniques and best management practices for growing turfgrass. Following his graduation, Wells decided to integrate his newfound passion and understanding of turfgrass production into the family farm.
As you may guess, most people who buy sod are farmers. But, it’s interesting to note that Riverside also partners with a number of athletic ventures, like football fields and golf courses.
Riverside has nine turf varieties available for purchase, including popular varietals such as Zoysia and Bermuda grasses. They take great pride in the fact that their grass is genetically pure and true-to-type by focusing on the genetic purity of their grasses.
Do you know what grass is best for each climate? Zoysia, St. Augustine and Bermuda grass are best for warm seasons. For cool seasons, you can install a custom blend.
