Eight Varieties of Grass Sod Adapted to Southeast Texas
Our grass sod comes from our family farm in Bay City. Houston Grass Owner Michael Romine grew up on that farm so he knows the care and time and money that go into growing healthy, weed-free grass sod. Because our grass is grown at a farm with the same climate as the Houston area, it’s adapted to do well in Houston projects.
Three Varieties of St. Augustine Grass Sod
We offer you three varieties of top-quality St. Augustine grass sod. They differ in shade tolerance, disease tolerance and price. Please call us for the latest prices for our grass sod. We offer quantity discounts so the more you buy, the more you save.
Most of the grass sod we sell is Raleigh St. Augustine and it’s used for most lawns across the greater Houston area. It’s a great looking grass with good traffic tolerance. However, it’s not shade tolerant and needs to be planted in areas with full sun. We sell our Raleigh St. Augustine grass sod by the piece, by the half-pallet and by the pallet. A pallet covers 50 square yards or 450 square feet.
Palmetto St. Augustine offers a lush, thick lawn with good traffic tolerance and good shade tolerance. Palmetto St. Augustine grass is the most shade-tolerant grass we sell. However all grass need some sun, so please call our office and tell us about your project site before you order grass. We can help you decide whether a shade-tolerant grass will work for you.
Floratam St. Augustine Grass Sod is more broad leafed than Raleigh St. Augustine. It’s big advantage is its resistance to chinch bugs and it’s big disadvantage is its lack of cold tolerance. In fact, we don’t sell our Floratam St. Augustine grass north of I-10, and most of the Floratam grass grown by the farm is sold in the Corpus Christi area.

Three Varieties of Zoysia Grass Sod
Our Zoysia grass sod provides you with a stunning lawn that will be the envy of your neighbors. Our Zoysia grass varieties are moderately shade tolerant and provide a lush, thick turf that stands up well to traffic.

Two Varieties of Bermuda Grass Sod
Our two varieties of Bermuda grass are perfect for full-sun projects where you need a grass that will self-repair gouges and divots relatively quickly. This fast growth characteristic makes Bermuda grass the grass of choice for athletic fields, golf fairways and other high-traffic areas.
We have two varieties of Bermuda grass sod — the Tifway 419 and the TexTurf 10. Please call us at 281-431-7441 for help in selecting the best variety of Bermuda grass sod for your project.
