Development Laboratory


We Don’t Experiment With Our Clients

At Sandman, we believe that our clients rely on us for expert advice. That’s why we’ve made a significant investment in creating a Development Lab, 20 acres located in North Atlanta, where we test processes, materials, soil, grass types and watering techniques – all to provide the best result possible for your lawn or property. With extensive research conducted over the last eight years, the Development Lab ensures that customers:

  • Get the right service the first time
  • Receive the most effective applications of fertilizer and other materials
  • Are advised about specific maintenance requirements for their property

The Development Lab is used as a testing facility to develop new products and procedures that deliver healthy, beautiful turf. Some of our innovations include:

  • The development of the laser grading process to combat problems like unwanted wet spots and correcting grade irregularities during construction of homes or sports fields, before costly mistakes are made
  • The development of Controlled Growth Fertilizer which reduces the need to cut grass by as much as 50 percent
  • Specialized watering techniques developed for controlled growth applications that reduce the water required for normal maintenance
  • Customized fertilizer application processes delivered at the right time for optimal results
  • The development of Deep Core® Aeration which produces superior turf by retaining soil and various nutrients
  • Specialized maintenance programs using reel mowers and custom-designed fertilizer application equipment
