RTF Sod is a unique type of tall fescue sod. Its ability to fill in bare spots sets it apart from any other tall fescue sod.
Be sure you get the genuine RTF Sod. The RTF Turf Producers Association has implemented a strict quality control program that allows its members to issue the RTF Sod Certificate if all requirements are complied with. Only licensed sod growers have access to the RTF seed that produces the RTF Sod, “the only sod you’ll ever need”. Therefore ask for the RTF Sod Certificate when buying RTF Sod. (You will receive an RTF Sod Certificate with your invoice if you buy directly from the RTF Sod grower. If you buy RTF Sod through a retailer, ask them for a copy of the certificate that was issued to them).
In short, the RTF Sod producers file their planted sod acres with the RTF Turf Producers Association, who keeps track of the RTF seed shipped to and acres planted for RTF Sod, by its members. When RTF sod is sold, the sod producer files this with the RTF Sod Producers Association, who then releases the RTF Sod Certificate to be printed for the quantity sold. It is impossible for RTF Sod growers to issue more certificates than they have RTF sod produced, the Association simply will not release the certificate. This Certification system operates through an Internet connection and allows you to verify the certificate you have received.
