Summary of Our Quality Grass Sod Video
– Pricing is probably the biggest question that we answer. Everybody wants to make sure that they’re getting a competitive price on a product, and I certainly understand that. However the second question in that conversation from a consumer should be “well, what is the quality of the grass that I’m getting and how can I be assured that I’m not going to end up with a yard full of weeds?”
Because most people don’t purchase grass very many times in their lives, there’s not many “grass experts” out there. If you do a little looking around online there’s a lot of information out there. But grass quality is frankly not touched on that much.
All of our grasses are very competitively priced. We’re certainly not the cheapest because the farm that our grass comes from focuses on growing quality grass. Triangle Turf down in Bay City is the farm I grew up on, and I have first hand knowledge of how it’s operated. I sat on mowers growing up and drove forklifts and helped haul grass out.
Now my brother runs that farm and my brother and dad operate that, and I have very good knowledge of what goes on down there. I know how much more they spend per acre than most other farms. They have more men per acre that are constantly looking out for weeds and spraying fungicides to kill those weeds. They’re just always on the lookout and doing everything they can to make sure every piece of grass that leaves the farm is of the utmost quality. They’ve made their name on that since the early 80s when they started and it still absolutely stands today. My dad still has his thumb on it and that’s where he started and quality is just what they do.
Just Because It’s Green and on a Pallet Doesn’t Mean It’s Quality Grass
There’s a lot of farms that operate to the other extreme — they just have a lot of acres. They go out there and cut it with a mower a few times a year and let mother nature take its course. It grows back if it rains. If it doesn’t rain it doesn’t come back. They don’t fertilize, they certainly don’t spend the extra money on weed killer and stuff like that. But you may end up with an absolute mess on your hands if you get grass like that.
You may save a little bit of money, maybe 20 cents a piece, if you go down the road to some of the garden centers. Or maybe 10 bucks a pallet or something like that if you go someplace else buying pallets.
What happens in a lot of those cases, is they’re not out there “spot spraying” with Roundup. At our farm, we’re constantly looking for runners of the Common Bermuda grass that can so easily become established at grass farms. Those seeds are in nature and they’re swirling around all the time so it’s easy to get them.
But we’re constantly on the lookout and flagging them, spraying them, and getting rid of them. As you can imagine, that’s a pretty intensive, labor intensive and chemical intensive endeavor.
A lot of farms don’t do that. You don’t see it and you get a few pallets of grass delivered, you lay it down and two months later it really starts to green up and everything comes out and you realize that you’ve got a bunch of weeds. The worst culprit would certainly be Common Bermuda grass because it can absolutely take over your yard.
You’re not going to get that with us and you may or may not pay a little bit more depending on who you call but our quality is absolutely second to none. So we turn out only the highest quality grass and it’s certainly something that should be noted. You can save yourself a lot of headache.
