TGS is committed to growing many types of high quality grass. We put in the time and dedication to grow sod in large quantities. Our team strives to make sure the sod you receive is the best that it can be. Sod is a perishable good and should be installed soon after harvest. We keep a fresh stock at our retail locations for your convenience.
Ray and Patty started a landscaping business in 1953. At first they installed sprinkler systems to local homes. Ray saw a need for sod in the area and bought a 15 acre lot to use for sod production. This became the first sod farm in Oklahoma. They had influence in the turfgrass industry throughout the country and Tulsa Grass & Sod Farms became the well respected farm we are today from their hard work and dedication. A variety of U3 Bermuda that Okstate University believes is the closest variety to what Ray first grew back in the 1950’s. It now holds our initials in the scientific name, U-3-TGS-L.
Ray Sr. passed away in February 2015, followed by his wife Patty in June 2020. They are missed by their families and throughout the industry.
Over the years their small operation turned into a thriving business now employing close to 50 workers and growing over 1,000 acres of sod. Still family owned today, Tulsa Grass & Sod is among the best sod growers in the country providing local customers with the best product available.
RAY VOLENTINE SR. WAS INDUCTED INTO THE TURFGRASS HALL OF FAME AT OKLAHOMA STATE UNIVERSITY IN 2006
