We will continue to monitor the coronavirus (COVID-19) situation closely and provide updates on this webpage as they become available. Here, you will also find links to financial resources, state-by-state executive orders, and guidance on business operations during COVID19.

Our number one priority is the health and well-being of our employees, customers, and communities. Next to that, we are committed to providing exceptional service to our customers. We have implemented preventative measures and taken action to reduce face-to-face contact, but Advanced Turf Solutions will continue business operations unless ordered to close by state or federal authorities.

We know that spring is a hectic time of year for our customers, and we are committed to being your trusted partner in turf management. We encourage you to be proactive and place orders early. A reality of our industry is that many raw ingredients come from other countries. Still, we can assure you that we have made significant investments to properly service you and have a good supply of inventory throughout our locations at this time.
