  • WHAT KIND OF GRASS IS GOOD FOR THIS AREA?

    • We grow Floratam St. Augustine and Bermuda grass. Both varieties are great for South Texas.
      • Floratam is a type of St. Augustine that is drought tolerant, shade tolerant, disease resistant, and cinch bug resistant. Floratam needs about 6-7 hours of sunlight a day. Sunlight can be filtered through trees. Just make sure to keep your trees trimmed and that it meets the 6-7 hour requirement.
      • Turfco Bermuda is a type of Bermuda known for it superior traffic tolerance, high drought tolerance, super soft texture, and beautiful green-blue color. Turfco Bermuda does not like shade, so full sun is best. Our Bermuda can be found in a wide variety of commercial projects to many residential homes.
    • HOW SHOULD I PREPARE THE GROUND TO LAY NEW SOD?

      • It is important to start with a smooth and level surface. It may be necessary to have dirt hauled in to help level low areas out.
      • Make sure to remove weeds from the area as well. Weeds provide competition for nutrients with your grass. Do your best to remove them before planting grass.

    • HOW SOON SHOULD I LAY MY GRASS AFTER DELIVERY/PICK UP?

      • We recommend you lay your grass immediately. Depending on weather conditions you may wait up to 24 hours.
    • HOW MUCH SHOULD NEW GRASS BE WATERED?

      • It is very important to not let grass dry out during the first 2 weeks. You do not want your grass to sit in water. Watering twice a day is recommended for the first 14 days. Keep in mind this can change depending on current weather conditions.
    • WHEN CAN I MOW MY NEW GRASS?

      • Avoid mowing newly laid sod for at least two weeks. Typically roots are attached to dirt within 2-3 weeks. This can vary depending on care of grass and weather conditions.
    • SHOULD I FERTILIZE MY GRASS?

      • We recommend applying Starter Fertilizer before laying new sod. Starter Fertilizer is available for purchase in our office. It is highly recommended due to its unique formulation that feeds the root system. This reduces stress on the grass and helps it get established faster.
