Fresh Sod From Council Growers
Direct From The Farm

Have you ever wondered where sod comes from? Turfgrass is grown in a field at a sod farm. Council Growers is the closest sod farm to Tampa and services the Tampa Bay and Sarasota metro areas. Our grass is cut day of or the afternoon before, we deliver it or we install the sod in your yard or at your project site.

Council Growers Sod Farm grows many varieties of turfgrass and groundcover for your yard including EMPIRE Zoysia, Seville St. Augustine, Bitter Blue St. Augustine, Floratam St. Augustine, Celebration Bermuda, 419 Bermuda, Tifway 419, Native Seashore Paspalum, Bahia, ProVistaTM, Bimini Bermuda and four types of Perennial Peanut including the popular Ecoturf as well as Brooksville 67 (waxy leaf), Brooksville 68 (pointed leaf) and Floragraze.

In business since 1988, Council Growers roots run deep in Hillsborough and Manatee county, providing high quality grass and groundcover for Wholesale, Commercial and Residential sod projects. A new lawn is a major investment and we want you to feel comfortable with your decision and not breeze you through a quick sale. Our grass is cut fresh out of the field generally the morning or afternoon before you pick it up, we deliver it, or we install the sod in your yard at the project site.

Here are a few photos of my lawn project. I researched for weeks the finest lawn sod available in the state and selected Empire Turf for its outstanding attributes. The lawn has exceeded my expectations for lush soft blades and low maintenance. Like no other Florida grass, the Empire Turf is always a pleasant treat to walk barefoot on.

I bought your Empire Turf about 9 months ago and couldn’t be happier with the product, it came in strong and lush. I saw your commercial today on cable and thought I would write. I would certainly vouch for your product, it’s doing fine in Palm Harbor FL.
Thanks & Happy New Year,

Hello Travis, I have been struggling with the fight between St Augustine Floratam and some funky Bermuda and Bahia for too many years here on the south shore of Tampa Bay. Your suggestion to use the perennial peanut it the backyard for a native scape approach is incredible and the new celebration lawn in front is keeping my neighbors VERY happy!

I will send you some pics as soon as my computer skills get up to par!

Delivered right to our home. Our grass was horrible, we put in St Augustine from the farm, yard looks fantastic. We will never go anywhere else for Sod. Great people, great product, great prices!!!!

I am a repeat customer…picking up some perennial peanut to finish my front yard this week. Planted in June of last year, and I had complete coverage by the time the cooler weather set in.

I bought sod from Council Growers Sod Farm. All the sod that I bought was done and installed on time. I recommend the company to anyone looking for new sod.
