All American has the unique ability to keep fresh grass in stock every day.  We have a production partner in the family located in Crosby and a fleet of trucks running every day.  We also have a broad customer base which keeps the grass rotating out of the holding yard.  On a given day we will sell between 40 and 80 pallets of grass from our location in Magnolia.  How do you keep grass fresh?  Keep selling it!

We sell several types of sod including various varieties of St. Augustine, Bermuda, and Zoysia grass.  All grass is sold by the pallet which has 160 individual pieces and covers 450 square feet.  With St. Augustine grass being the most common type in this area, we offer it by the individual piece which measures 16”x24” to help accommodate smaller jobs.  There is a “Big Box Store” just down the street selling grass by the piece.  We beat their price and quality every day of the week, guaranteed!

Raleigh St. Augustine: 

Raleigh St Augustin is the standard lawn grass you see in most neighborhoods.  It has a coarse leaf texture and can have a dark green color when fertilized regularly.  Raleigh is shade tolerant but still requires some direct sunlight to grow a dense canopy.  All St. Augustines will need to be mowed once a week during the growing season, require regular watering and go dormant in the winter months.

Palmetto St. Augustine:

Palmetto St. Augustine is an improved variety of St. Augustine developed by Sod Solutions in the early 1980’s.  Palmetto shows a better tolerance for shade than other varieties of St. Augustine.  While it is more shade tolerant than others, it still needs light to grow.  No grass will grow in total shade.  All St. Augustine grasses will need to be mowed once a week during the growing season, require regular watering and go dormant in the winter months.

Regular Bermuda:

Regular Bermuda is a group of Common Bermuda varieties that can be adapted to both lawns and pastures.  It can tolerate regular mowing and will grow more densely when cared for like a lawn.  This type of bermudagrass is what is used on roadsides, parks and common areas.  Bermudagrasses can tolerate drought and infrequent mowing.  Many bermudagrasses are susceptible to weed infestations and need different care than St. Augustine to stay weed free.

Tifway 419: 

Tiffway 419 or Tiff 419 is a dwarf variety of bermuda grass.  It is a sun loving grass that does not tolerate shade well.  Tiff 419 can accept low mowing heights down to ½” and had a good drought tolerance.  Many bermuda grasses are susceptible to weed infestations and need different care than St. Augustine to stay weed free.

Celebration Bermuda:

Celebration Bermuda is a dwarf variety of bermudagrass developed by Sod Solutions.  It is a sun loving grass that does tolerate moderate shade.  Celebration is can accept low mowing heights down to ½” and has excellent drought tolerance.  Celebration is set apart by a dense growth habit and a vibrant blue-green color.  While Celebration is a dense variety of bermudagrass it will need different care from St. Augustine for weed control.

Empire Zoysia:

Empire Zoysia is a hybrid variety of Zoysia grass developed by Sod Solutions.  It has similar shade tolerances to Palmetto St. Augustine but has a much softer feel under foot.  This medium textured grass has very good wear tolerance and injury recovery and is well suited for any home lawn.  Empire Zoysia has excellent reisitance to both Sod Webworms and Fall Armyworms.
