Marathon® II is our most advanced dwarf tall fescue. It retains the excellent durability of the species while enhancing its beauty. Marathon® II can be mowed shorter, has greater density, and slightly narrower leaves, resulting in a more compact carpet-like appearance. The growth rate is somewhat slower, particularly in winter. Marathon® II contains Encore®, a second-generation dwarf (sometimes termed "double dwarf"), and is a proprietary variety developed exclusively for Southland Sod Farms and the Southern California market area. Primary selection criteria were short mature growth, compact dense crown, dark color, disease resistance, and leaf texture.
Marathon® II Sod carries a One Year Free Replacement Guarantee contingent upon proper installation and minimum level of maintenance.

How to Make a Claim:
As soon as brown areas begin to appear, call your original retailer for advice. If he is unable to help you, call our customer service representative at 805.488.3585. We will go through a series of diagnostic questions by phone (we cannot make service calls) to identify the cause of sod failure and offer a recommendation(s) for correcting the problem. This may include changing your irrigation schedule, applying a fungicide, adding a sprinkler, etc. You will be required to implement the recommendation(s) and allow at least two weeks to verify its (their) success before replacement sod will be arranged.
Once you have corrected the problem, call our customer service representative to schedule the delivery of your replacement sod. We will arrange a date to add your replacement sod, at no charge to you, to a regular delivery going to your retailer.
