Our business has been well rooted in the turf industry for many years. Founded by Hermann Linadu in 1956, Mr. Lindau was one of the earliest Turf Pioneers in 1930, harvesting and installing sod by hand in the New York Metro area.
Over 90 years, a tradition of quality soil preparation, finest in finish grading and turf installation has been passed down to create an unquestionable reputation.
