We keep Raleigh St. Augustine turf grass in stock on our lot. It is available for purchase by the piece, the half pallet or by the pallet. A piece of sod is 16 inches by 24 inches and a pallet is 50 square yards or 450 square feet.
We normally have pieces of Raleigh St. Augustine grass available at our office, but we do run out so it’s always a good idea to call ahead before you visit to pick up grass. All half-pallet and pallet orders of Raleigh St. Augustine must be ordered in advance because it’s harvested fresh for your order. All other varieties must be ordered in advance by the pallet only and must be paid for in advance. Call 281-431-7441 for more information.

We carry two varieties of the St. Augustine grass sod – Raleigh St. Augustine grass and Palmetto St. Augustine grass. We also carry two varieties of Bermuda grass sod – Tifway 419 Bermuda grass and Texturf 10 Bermuda grass. Finally, we carry three varieties of Zoysia grass sod — Palisades Zoysia grass, Cavalier Zoysia grass and Emerald Zoysia grass.
For most Houston-area homeowners, Raleigh St. Augustine is a great choice. It’s been around forever, it’s easy to keep looking great and it’s what your neighbors probably have in their lawns. Palmetto St. Augustine grass offers shade tolerance along with being easy to care for.
If want a lush, thick turf with some shade tolerance then Palisades Zoysia is worth considering. It reminds many people of the Kentucky Bluegrass turf that you’ll see in cooler climates. Palisades Zoysia is easy to care for and its thick turf makes it resistant to wear.
Shade tolerance and watering requirements are the two most controversial topics as they pertain to turf grass. That said, we do believe that Palmetto St. Augustine grass or one of the Zoysia varieties are the best grasses to use if shade is an issue. You should make sure that the area does get at least four hours of direct sunlight and filtered sunlight throughout the day or your grass will not last more than a couple of seasons. Our Zoysia grasses have good shade tolerance. Between the Zoysia grasses, the fine-bladed varieties — Emerald and Cavalier — are the most shade tolerant.
As far as watering requirements, our opinion is that if you want the grasses to look their best, not just survive, every species of turf grass is going to require approximately the same amount of water. We recommend at least an inch of water every week (from irrigation or the sky) during the growing season and an inch of water every other week during other times of the year.
