Soil Analysis

The soil at Central Wisconsin Sod farm is perfect for growing healthy sod with a vigorous root system. Soil analysis results include:

  1. Kentucky bluegrass, fine fescue, and creeping bentgrass grown on soil having approximately 88% sand
  2. Infiltration rate is approximately 2-3 inches per hour at a saturated state.
  3. Material is very well-drained when compared to other mineral-type soils used for sod production.
  4. Material contains considerably less organic matter than peat-based soils used for sod production.
  5. Sod harvested from this soil with the minimum amount of soil necessary would be better suited for applications over sand based root zones when compared to mineral or peat-based soils.
