About Us

High Desert Turf was founded in 1995 with a vision of providing the highest quality turf grass and sod products to landscapers and homeowners. Since our early days as a small farm, we have grown considerably, and now provide a greener life for people all over the Western United States.

About Us

Our president, Darwin McKay, started his first turf farm with a small amount of acreage and some used equipment. He has since gone on to serve as president of the Turf Producers International, teach horticulture to students and Master Gardeners, and assist in the development and research of several types of new, revolutionary turf types. Many in the area have heard Darwin on local radio talk shows, offering advice on how to properly care for your lawn.

High Desert Turf, and its affiliate The Turf Company, serve a seven state area in the western United States.

As president of High Desert Turf, he is testament of our commitment to a greener world.

The focus of our turf grass research and development can best be expressed in the five D’s of turf grass:
  1. Darker – early spring green up and better summer color
  2. Denser – an increase in leaf tissue coupled with finer leaves
  3. Disease Resistant – varieties resistant to chewing insects and patch diseases
  4. Drought Tolerant – lower water usage saves you money during hot summer months
  5. Deeper Root Systems – providing better access to water and nutrients

As a company, we are constantly engaged in continuous improvement of our turf grass products. Our turf crops are meticulously cared for and nurtured. Customers of High Desert Turf can create a new lawn, assured in the fact that each roll of turf grass is disease-and-weed-free. In Northern Nevada, High Desert Turf consistently delivers the highest quality turf grass to our customers.

We are so confident in our product, that we guarantee you will not find a finer turf grass anywhere!
