Smith Turf & Irrigation was founded in 1925 as one of the very first golf course maintenance equipment suppliers in the country. As a Toro distributor since 1925, STI has been nationally recognized for outstanding customer care, customer service, and overall business excellence. Because of the extremely close relationships we have built over the years with our irrigation, lighting, and water garden contractors, we understand what landscape maintenance professionals are looking for in a partner to provide their equipment.

So in 2001, we took the most important elements of our business: great products, exceptional service, and an absolute commitment to our customers' success, and established STI Turf Care Equipment.

Using those benchmarks as the foundation for an outdoor power equipment dealership, we believe it has fundamentally changed the perception, process, and practice of buying and servicing lawn maintenance products, parts, and accessories.
