The new sod plots at Super-Sod of Marietta showcase four Zoysia varieties side-by-side for customers' ease of comparison.

The sod looks beautiful, and the customer can really get a feel for what they want to have in their yard.

During spring 2017, Super-Sod stores in Marietta and Forest Park received facelifts with updated turfgrass plots that include each unique variety of sod offered by Super-Sod.

“We are excited for a variety of reasons, but the main one being we can show the customer every type of grass we carry,” said Ashley Holder of accounts payable and receivable at Super-Sod of Marietta. “The sod looks beautiful, and the customer can really get a feel for what they want to have in their yard.”

Over the past few years, Super-Sod stores have updated their inventory to include new types of turfgrass. Sod plots at the stores in Marietta and Forest Park were renovated to properly display the nine varieties of turfgrass currently available.

Additions to the sod plots include TifTuf Bermuda, Zeon Zoysia and Leisure Time Zoysia.

Team members in Forest Park each contributed to the plot makeover.

“Our crew pitched in to renovate the sod plots,” said Mike Darsey, Atlanta area manager. “It was a good experience for all of us!”

Mixon Landscaping installed the new sod plots in Marietta and additionally created a customer-friendly layout during the project.

Because there are four varieties of Zoysia grass, the new sod plots at both stores feature each type of Zoysia side-by-side. This allows customers to look at and feel the different textures to determine which Zoysia will work best for their lawn.

“It’s a fresh look and a great experience for our customers,” Darsey said. “Where else can you go see and interact with nine different varieties of grass?”

New labels displaying the various grass types add ease of navigation to the plots for customers as well.

“Every plot is labeled, which is convenient for our customers who cannot make it to the store during business hours but want to look before they make a purchase,” Holder said.
