Orders will be invoiced.
Commercial customers without Net 30 and local homeowners:
Orders will be invoiced and payment will be collected when sod is picked up.
When delivery is scheduled, payment must be made prior to delivery.

TifTuff™ is a fine-textured, bright green turf that boasts great drought tolerance. It provides excellent resistance to traffic as well as fast recovery from wear/tear. Although TifTuff™ has better shade tolerance than most other Bermudagrasses, it still needs six to eight hours of sun light and 95% light filtration. It is also disease resistant and has a quicker Spring green up as well as better green color retention into Fall. TifTuff provides great overall turfgrass quality and appearance.

Bermuda Tifway 419
Tifway 419 is a deep, green Bermuda grass with a fine texture. It has excellent weed and disease resistance and is a superior turf for fairways, tees, athletic fields and home lawns. When cut at ¾ to 1 ½ inches, 419 provides an excellent impact-absorbing cushion. Because of its very dense top growth, Tifway 419 tolerates more wear and better resists weed invasion. It is more resilient in winter months when the grass is dormant. Tifway 419 is the most widely used Hybrid Bermudagrass used is the South for golf and sports fields.
Specifications: Spring green-up; Good seedhead formation; Very little fall color retention; Excellent leaf width: 1.2 mm internode diameter, 1.0 mm shoot density; Late seedhead formation; Late discoloration.

"Developed and released by Texas A&M University, Palisades Zoysia is a variety of Zoysia Japonica, which originally came to North America from Japan in 1895. Palisades Zoysia is one of the most popular, coarse-textured Zoysia grasses in the United States. In addition to its medium-coarse texture, it tolerates heat and withstands cold relatively well. It also handles moderate shade and salty conditions quite well. Most importantly, Palisades Zoysia is one of the most drought tolerant of the Zoysias. In fact, some studies have shown it to survive up to 15 weeks without water. Another crucial distinguishing point about Palisades Zoysia is that it can be mowed to as low as ½ inch in height. This aspect of the grass, along with its hardiness in dry conditions, makes it an ideal turf for golf course fairways and roughs – and, of course, for residential lawns. Palisades Zoysia, like many other Zoysias, is a highly dense turf and is also appropriate for highway medians and rights of way as well as industrial and commercial parks.

Raleigh St. Augustine
The North Carolina Experiment Station released cold-hardy Raleigh St. Augustine in 1980. Although finer textured (with a narrower blade) and more tolerant of shade than Floratam, Raleigh develops dense ground coverage. Raleigh St. Augustine is medium green in color, tolerant to cold temperatures, SAD virus resistant and is best grown in heavier clay soils.
History: Our farms grew the first Raleigh Foundation Stock in Texas. The stock was shipped from North Carolina to Texas, expanded as Foundation Stock at our farms, and then distributed to the Texas Growers through the Texas Sod Producers Association. Today, Raleigh is the most widely grown variety of St. Augustine in Texas.
