What’s the Price of Emerald Zoysia Sod
You may have heard of Emerald Zoysia grass and be wondering about the price of Emerald Zoysia sod for installation on your lawn. In this video, Houston Grass South Owner Michael Romine talks about the price of Emerald Zoysia compared with the other grasses we sell. These are 2017 prices and prices do change. Please check the 2019 price list below the video.
Summary of Michael’s Video on the Price of Emerald Zoysia Sod
– A lot of times we get asked about the pricing of different grasses. The Emerald Zoysia sod, that we’re going to start carrying on a regular basis here, is one of those, of the several different varieties that we do carry.
The 2017 price of Emerald Zoysia sod is going to be $240 per 450 square foot pallet. It covers 50 square yards and that is the price based if someone were to come pick the grass up here at our yard. We do not carry that type of grass by the piece. It can only be purchased by the full pallet.
As a matter of fact, the only type of grass we do sell by the piece is just the Raleigh St. Augustine. All the rest of our grasses must be ordered by the 450 square foot pallet and paid for in advance. It usually takes two days, on average, to receive the ordered pallets and have them ready for pick up or delivery.
Why We Don’t Stock Emerald Zoysia Sod at Our Office
The reason that we do only sell most of the varieties of grass by the full pallet is because we don’t get as many requests for them as we do Raleigh St. Augustine grass. Raleigh St. Augustine is readily available everywhere. People come in constantly and need pallets and pieces of it. These other types of grass, they’re more specialty-types of grass. They are more expensive for different reasons but we do cut them fresh.
We do ask you to give us a couple days heads up so we can schedule a truck to bring them to you. By harvesting that grass to your order, it is never sitting in our farm and never sitting in our yard, for very long. We want you to have your pallets of grass as quickly as possible from the time that the grass is harvested. We want you to be able to lay your grass sod in your yard within 24 hours of harvesting. That is the reason most of our grasses are only available by the pallet.
Why the Price of St. Augustine and Bermuda Grass Sod Is Lower
Someone may ask about the difference between a pallet of Raleigh St. Augustine and the price of the Zoysias, in particular. The Zoysias are more expensive. A lot of the Zoysias are newer so the farms have to pay royalty fees to the universities or whoever originally came up with the grasses.
You also normally only get one crop per year out of the Zoysias, whereas with the St. Augustines and the Bermudas, you can get two crops a year because they do grow so much faster. So it takes twice as long for an acre of our farm to produce a Zoysia crop as it takes for a St. Augustine or Bermuda grass crop. The Zoysia grasses are just a little bit tougher and more expensive to produce. That is the reason the Zoysias, in particular, are so much more expensive than the regular Bermudas and the St. Augustines.
