the GRASS PAD Story
Zorinsky, before flood control, before the race to Elkorn. The new sod farm at 144th and F street. With new sod harvesters
from Canada, new reel mowers, acres of bluegrass just like golf course. The big red barn with the big yellow letters: GRASS
PAD. Up on the hill, you could see it for miles.
Breed better lawn grasses just like they breed race horses. Each generation refined and tested. New grass varieties
for urban home lawns, parks and golf courses. Select the grass plants for the Midwest. Grow the grass for Omaha.
Fifty years ago the heart of the turf grass revolution began with the big red barn at
GRASS PAD at 144th and F street. Hundreds of acres, thousands of rolls. Every day fresh green rolls of Grass
Pad sod cut and delivered controlling erosion and protecting the environment. Perfect Grass Pad sod growing in perfect Nebraska
The big red barn is gone. Lake Zorinsky now covers the first GRASS
PAD sod farm. However the green heart of GRASS PAD grows and flourishes.
Every day fresh green sod is grown on our farms and delivered to the LOVELAND GRASS PAD.
Perfect Grass Pad sod is still growing in perfect Nebraska soil. Uncle Joe would be proud
