Our Company

Our "Roots" Run Deep
Our story began in 1951, when Ed & Vivienne Keeven began installing sod out of Florissant, MO. As the business grew, the Keevens decided to become growers as well. The farm that started with 120 acres grew to nearly 400 by 1973, at which point Ed & Viv dissolved the installation business to commit their time solely to growing and selling top quality turf.

Some of Ed and Viv’s early accomplishments in the St. Louis area include:

  • First to grow "nursery grown" turf by blending three improved varieties of bluegrass
  • Frst to grow Meyer Z-52 Zoysia on a large scale basis, expanding from 5 to 40 acres in seven years
  • First to utilize an automatic sod harvester and handle sod by the pallet
  • Developed many turf irrigation methods, making their product available all summer long
  • Developed a delivery route system, wholesaling sod to the majority of nurseries and garden centers in St. Louis and surrounding areas


Quality is a Family Tradition
Since 1951 our family name has been associated with quality turf. Ed, Tom, and Jim Keeven are lifelong turf professionals who continually devote themselves to the betterment of the company and the entire turf industry.

Ed Keeven - Served on Board of Directors for American Sod Producers Association (now TPI)

It is this type of devotion that keeps us on the cutting edge of turf technology and allows us to deliver you the very best.

Tom, Jim, & Ed
