Summary of the “How Much Is Grass” Video
– – How much is your grass? That’s probably the number one question, when we pick up the phone we get asked. I suspect that if I was buying grass too, that I’m gonna call three folks around and ask the same question.
How Much Is Grass – When You Consider Quality
Another question to ask right after you ask “how much is your grass” is “what’s the quality of your grass”. Quality is kind of hard to quantify, but that’s certainly important and it’s nowhere near the same from store to store.
Our 2017 Prices for Grass Sod
The price for our pallets of Raleigh St. Augustine are $120 for a 450 square foot pallet. This is the pricing for 2017, is when we’re doing this video. We also, sell these grasses by the piece, and we do have piece pricing. The $120 is for one to three pallets. We do give quantity discounts. The more you buy, the less it is.
And as far as delivery goes, the same also applies. The more pallets you buy, the less the delivery charge is. If someone wants two pallets delivered to 20 miles away from our office, the delivery charge per pallet will be much less if they want a whole truckload, that far from our office. So that’s something to keep in mind as well.
Our Grass Is Sold Fresh
The Raleigh St. Augustine is the only of our seven or eight varieties of grass that we sell that is sold by the piece. The rest of our grasses can only be purchased by the pallet. You have to order ’em and pay for ’em, and then usually two days later we schedule a truck. And we make sure that the grass is always as fresh as it can be, and that goes for all of our grasses. All we do here is sell grass, so we’re making sure we’re constantly turning over our inventory, and giving you the freshest grass we possibly can.
How Much is Grass Sold by the Piece and Half Pallet
The Raleigh St. Augustine though, it is sold by the piece. This is our 2017 pricing, and the grass is going to be $1.35 per piece. The pieces are 16 by 24 inches. And we also do give, we have half pallet pricing. That’s also something to note. If you need 225 square feet, or there about, it’s $65.
We do the sell the grass a lot that way because that half pallet seems to fit the niche that a lot of people need. Also it should be noted that a half pallet is about as much as a half ton pickup can carry. So we split lots of Raleigh St. Augustine pallets in half so that people can buy them by that as well. So the half pallet price is $65, and the price per piece is $1.35.
If Quality Is Important to You – You’ll Buy from Houston Grass
We know, because of driving down the highway, we know that there are big box stores that sell the grass for a little bit less. And we know that there are some, particularly the big box stores, that sell the grass for a whole lot more. If you’re buying it by the piece, that’s one thing.
But if you’re looking for pallets, we’re not the cheapest guys in town, but our prices are super competitive, when you’re looking at quality. The reason for our pricing is frankly that we believe we have the highest quality grass that you can get in the greater Houston area.
I would lay our grass up next to anybody’s any time, any time of year. There are people out there that do sell the grass a little bit cheaper, but you just don’t know what you’re gonna get there.
Our Grass Comes from Our Family Farm
We only buy our grass from one farm. We know how they’re taking care of it. They spend more dollars per acre on chemicals and manpower to look for common Bermuda grass and weeds. So you’re never gonna find common Bermuda grass seed in our grass sod.
Our farm spends extra money on pre-emergence, and all of that. You’re not gonna get this grass out there, and a month later when it really jumps up and starts growing you’re gonna see common Bermuda grass spreading all through it, and weeds of all sorts.
You’ll see that a lot unfortunately in new houses. People move into a new house, and a lot of builders put in whatever is just readily available and cheap. And the next season comes around, and a homeowner moves in, and the grass is still short. But all of a sudden when the weather warms, it starts growing and you start to see all the weeds in it.
The worst culprit that you have to make sure that you don’t have is common Bermuda grass. Because if you have common Bermuda grass in your yard it will overtake your yard within a year. Just the smallest spot.
The only way to get rid of it is to spray it out and kill it with Roundup. So if you see it in your yard, spray it out generously, kill it with Roundup, let it die, and replace those spots. But, we feel like, coming to us for pieces or pallets or whatever, paying a little bit more for much better grass, it’s well worth the money, and will save you a lot of time and headache and heartache in the future.
