From the ground up

Whether you’re in charge of an athletic field or your family’s back yard, Professional Outdoor Solutions has the tools to improve your turf.


Our “from the ground up” method is what makes our approach to athletic and commercial turf care different. We focus on more than just aesthetics — we build strong foundations that protect the health and safety of athletes, family members and pets.


We call it a “feed the soil” philosophy, as opposed to a “feed the grass” philosophy. We know from more than 40 years of experience that strong root systems produce healthy grass, and coincidentally, healthy turf is aesthetically pleasing.
