“We have installed more irrigation and turf than most of our competitors combined in the state of New Mexico. Since 1973, Hilltop has purchased 100% of our turf from Gardner Turfgrass. Gardner’s service and quality of sod has always met the highest standards that our customers expect of our company. Gardner Turfgrass has always stood behind their sod and has delivered a fresh full grown roll of turf to our jobsites. This includes even in the dead of winter, when we have to have sod in order to finish an industrial or commercial project, Gardner, if need be will store a load of sod in their heated barn until the road conditions will let them deliver.
If you would like to visit job sites in Albuquerque, Rio Rancho, Santa Fe, Denver, Las Cruces or El Paso to see Gardner’s turf you probably only need to walk outside your front door and look down the street or even at your own yard. In New Mexico we have installed 7 of the last 9 city parks built in Rio Rancho and in each park we installed Gardner Turfgrass. In June of this year we completed the new UNM football practice facility just south of the football stadium with Gardner Turfgrass sod.
We have always been very proud to partner with Gardner Turfgrass and will continue to use their product and great service God willing for the next 30 years.”

Reveille in Altos, NM 2009
You probably don’t remember me since it’s been over three years since you sent me some Reveille seed to plant a lawn in Alto, NM. Right after I planted the seed, I was transferred to Puerto Rico for 18 months to assist with a golf resort project. When I returned, I spent the winter at home, then went to Chicago for four months the following year. During my periods of absence, no one tended to the lawn and it just kept surviving. The results are incredibly satisfying (see picture above). So much so that my neighbor just installed about 1000 sq. ft. of sod and a local landscape nurseryman is planning to install some lawns locally. To say the least, I am amazed at the durability of Reveille through periods of drought and heavy rains combined with two mild winters. Thank you again for the wonderful grass.
All the best,
