Why is Tuckahoe Turf better than their turf?

Hardier turf. Less compression.

Our sod is grown on Hammonton sandy-loam soil, transplants on almost any soil.

Superior drainage. No pooling.

About Tuckahoe Turf Farms

The Farming operations include twelve hundred acres, all family owned, eight hundred are cultivated, primarily in sod. The remaining five hundred acres consist of permanently preserved watershed, wetlands, and service areas. Tuckahoe Turf Farms is one of the largest growers of sod in the Northeast and a leader in new and innovative varieties of sod and growth technology.

In January of 1931, the farming family of Elmer Betts moved from Stratford, Connecticut, to Estell Manor in Atlantic County, adjacent to the Tuckahoe River. During the Spring of 1931 and successive years, Elmer and his son Walter operated a truck farm to support the family. They also grew cranberries in a nearby bog in order to pay property taxes.

Spring, Spring, Spring....we are full speed spring planting. Here is just some of the equipment being utilized. All of this will look like the last photo soon. ... See MoreSee Less

So Monday we talked about the tag on grass seed, how to read it and make sure you are getting the best for your money. Today we are going to review the label on fertilizer. In New Jersey and around the country fertilizer manufactures are required to have a label on the bag with what is called the Guaranteed Analysis. It's basically a recipe of what is included in the bag. For discussion I will be referencing the photo attached. This bag is custom blended for us, it is referred to as 16-0-9. The three numbers on all bags of fertilizer are as follows:
The 1st number indicates the amount of nitrogen(N) that is in the bag. (16% so that is 8 pound of N)
The 2nd number indicates the amount of phosphate(P) that is in the bag (0% indicates 0 P)
And the 3rd number indicates the amount of potash (K) that is in the bag (9% equals 4.5 pounds of K)
So here is what makes Tuckahoe Turf Farms custom fertilizer better. Based on the above, a 50 pound bag only has 12.5 pound of N, P and K. Any other company would fill the balance of the bag with a filler such as Grandol (a lime rock with no nutritional value). You would be paying for 37.5 pounds of product of no use. We after years of tinkering have found beneficial items to replace that useless filler. We mix in Cal-Star Enriched Calcitic Lime. This product is twice the power of your typical limestone. By using TTF's 16-0-9 twice a year (spring then fall) you have added a standard does of lime, but spread out over the year as not to have spikes in your soil Ph. Another words you are flattening the curve (have heard that a few times these last few weeks) The Cal-Star is almost imminently available to the plant just like the fertilizer. The combination perks you lawn into a beautiful green color. Yes this adds a little cost to our fertilizers but the results are noticeable. We also include the Cal-Star in our starter fertilizer 7-14-7. For more information on our seed, fertilizer or sod give us a call. Quality Products Produce Quality Results.

Right on- I have the utmost respect for Tuck as a leader in our sod growing industry🌀🌀🌀.

Only two applications? Is this for a high end lawn maintenance schedule?

Thank You, Professor.

How can I purchase this?

This time of year everyone is looking to get their lawn into shape. Many of you will be seeding. So we would like to review some interesting information that you should look for when purchasing you grass seed.

1st Look for the “sell by date”. Although the seed will still have shelf life after the date on the tag, the germination will start to drop (See #3)

2nd Review the Weed Seed, yes that is correct you may be purchasing weed seeds that will grow and have to be removed later, always look for the least amount of weed seed, of course this adds to the cost of the bag as additional cleaning is needed to reduce weed seed content.

3rd Germination, this is typically located to the far right of the seed tag. This tells you the percent of seed that germinated when a germination test was done (also found on the tag)

4th Verities of grass seed included in the bag, if you are really doing your homework, you will want to look for the most recently released cultivars. It’s kind of like the latest model of a car. With the latest cultivars of seed, you get darker color, disease resistant, finer leaf texture, uses less water, fertilizer and drought tolerant.

Those are the 4 main topics on a seed tag. Now why do these matter.

As the “sell by date” passes the germination of the seed starts to decrease and by doing so you will need more seed to cover the area to get a good stand of grass. Many times in box stores you will see labels stickered over the old outdated “sell by date” tag, this can be done many times and if you carefully peel them back you would see how the germination has dropped. Have they reduced the price of the bag, because again you will need to purchase more seed. And “Weed Seed” lawn weeds that is, how much time, money and energy let alone the chemicals are utilized to deal with weeds. It’s as if they leave those weed seeds in the bag so you have to come back to purchase herbicides later, and of course they can purchase those bags with weed seeds in them at a much greater discount.

When you purchase your seed from Tuckahoe Turf Farms you are purchasing the highest quality seed, the top performing cultivars and the cleanest, freshest seed. We work direct with our friends in Oregon to acquire the cream of the crop. Many times we have orders in place before the seed is even harvested. This year is no exception. We had our seed sourced and in our barn mixed, tagged and ready for the spring seeding season in early February .

You can purchase our seed a couple ways. By visiting our web site ttfarms.com (look for the “order seed online” in the top right corner) or by visiting us at our Hammonton Farm.

Now for those of you who want that “Instant Lawn” we can do that. We are harvesting and shipping turfgrass daily. You can place your order by phoning us at 800-222-0591. One of our Turf Specialist will be happy to set up a delivery or schedule a pickup.
