Greenhorizons Sod Farms has always been a family-run business. Started by Richard Schiedel as Compact Sod originally in Cambridge, then continued by his sons, Ron and Steve Schiedel, farming is in their blood.
Over 30 years ago, Compact Sod looked to expand their reach and when Hamilton Sod came up for sale, Steve jumped at the chance to grow another farm, so they combined the two; Hamilton Sod and Compact Sod, and created Greenhorizons Sod Farms – now one of the most respected sod and soil companies.
The Schiedel brothers have done just about everything when it comes to agriculture, from pigs and dairy to cash crops and of course sod.
This acquisition in Hamilton doubled the available land for cultivating sod and made Greenhorizons a household name in Hamilton and the surrounding area.
Hamilton gardeners and landscape professionals know to come to Greenhorizons Sod Farms for all their sod and soil needs.

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.
