Since its inception in 1975, Greenhorizons Sod Farms has been a family business. Started by Richard Schiedel originally as Compact Sod, then continued by his sons, Ron and Steve Schiedel, farming is in their blood.
They are descendants of some of the earliest Southern Ontario farmers who moved here in the 1800’s. To this day, Greenhorizons continues to farm the same land the Schiedel’s ancestors did. In fact, the original land that the family purchased back in 1802 is on Maple Grove Rd., just a short drive from our current Cambridge farm!
Greenhorizons initially got into the sod industry when the 401 was being constructed in the 1960’s and one of the family’s pastures in Cambridge was harvested for installation along the new highway. That was the start of Compact Sod, creating the path to what we know today as the well-respected Greenhorizons Sod Farms.
Cambridge gardeners and landscape professionals know to come to Greenhorizons Sod Farms for all their sod and soil needs. For more than 30 years, Greenhorizons has provided a wide range of services to customers across Southern Ontario. Whether you need large-scale professional sod installation, or premium sod and soil delivery, Greenhorizons is your destination. We’re well known in Cambridge for having friendly customer relations and punctual professional services.
Soil is also a big part of our business through BigYellowBag – it plays an important role for the establishment and cultivation of sod for homeowners and landscapers alike. This also gives us the opportunity to expand the cultivation season to include soil and sod production, and provides opportunities to our staff for a longer season.
