President and CEO Donn Ellis founded CSI Geoturf in 1980 to provide effective civil site construction geosynthetic and landscape products to clients throughout Michigan. CSI Geoturf is built on a foundation of delivering superior customer service and has grown to become Michigan’s largest privately held wholesale distributor of geosynthetic products. With convenient offices in Highland, Grand Rapids and Traverse City, our team quickly delivers materials and supports projects throughout the State of Michigan, including the Upper Peninsula.

As a leading wholesale distributor of civil site construction and landscape products, we work directly with engineers, municipalities and contractors such as roadbuilders, excavators and commercial landscapers to provide solutions they can count on to protect and preserve both the environment and the structures that reside within it.

We Provide

Fast, Free Delivery

At CSI Geoturf, we make it easy to do business with us. We have a large fleet of experienced drivers and delivery assets that allow us to offer free delivery throughout the State of Michigan, including the Upper Peninsula (UP). We make it our top priority to deliver quality geosynthetic and landscape products precisely on schedule.

Precise Sequencing

Our team carefully manages the sequencing of delivery and will utilize our large fleet of delivery vehicles and drivers skilled at unloading materials properly on the jobsite to ensure that your products arrive when and where you need them. We understand the ebb and flow of projects and will work with you to adjust the delivery schedule to optimize your construction team’s productivity.

Easy-to-Access Materials

We make sure that our clients never have to pause work because of improperly placed geosynthetic or landscape supplies. Our drivers know jobsite space is at a premium. We will work with your team to ensure that materials are delivered and laid down in a manner that aligns with the way they must be accessed during the construction process. This approach ensures that the contractors on site can quickly access the appropriate materials and allows the work to progress smoothly and efficiently to keep the project on schedule.
