Hydroturf

Hydroturf 's philosophy is to operate our own office in the larger markets, or to place trained employees with
local dealers in the smaller markets.

We believe that this combination of quality Hydroturf managers and local dealers, provides our products with
a competitive advantage. Based on the per capita income, the population of the country and the priority to
landscape and beautify their environment, we have created our own offices in eight locations.
