It is difficult to find a quality minded and consistent supplier of Long Leaf Pine Straw, but we certainly have been gifted with the BEST. His name is Sergio. Our supplier is working with us on an “as needed/call basis” and they will deliver FRESH bales the same day we call him. We are storing his Long Leaf Pine straw inside one of our shop bays and off the floor where wetness may occur. This will keep our Long Leaf Pine Straw Bales dry and totally free from inclement weather, and there is the important element where we have the benefit of cooling air movement in all our shop bays. This new approach of receiving 250 – 300 fresh bales every 3 or 4 days has many advantages. In the past we would have to order a van load of 1,300 bales. This old technique is still used by the Big Box Stores.Their bales age quickly and a greying discoloration occurs due to the intense heat that builds up inside the van, any moisture speeds this decaying process, and simply the time it sits and takes to sell 1,300 bales
THE MERITS OF EMPIRE ZOYSIA
First of all we have a special announcement. We at SUPERIOR SOD AND GARDEN SUPPLY (www.superiorsodnc.com) have been privileged to be an Authorized Grower and Dealer by the developers of EMPIRE ZOYSIA.
EMPIRE ZOYSIA has been our grass of choice for years – as it far exceeds the negative issues found with other varieties that are available and promoted in the Wilmington , NC area. These off Zoysia varieties include Crown, Zenith, Jamur, and Meyers. It is always important for a potential Zoysia customer to check into the NTEP Trials (National Turf grass Evaluation Program). There are 28 test sites in the United States, and one of them is located at NC State in Raleigh.
EMPIRE ZOYSIA has been rated as the #1 Zoysia variety today.
EMPIRE TURF is a ZOYSIA grass that has truly raised the bar for warn season grasses. EMPIRE sod combines a soft to the touch, with a lush green color and fine, tight blade growth. VIsually, EMPIRE is an extremely attractive turf grass for any landscaping. Homeowners and Property Managers also appreciate its many maintenance, environmental, and cost saving advantages.
You might not expect a turf grass as soft as EMPIRE to be strong, but this incredible ZOYSIA grass accommodates a variety of activities without suffering extensive wear and tear. EMPIRE Turf is as hardy as it is attractive, and has a deep, thick root structure that makes it more drought tolerant than other turf grass varieties and including other Zoysia varieties. In addition, EMPIRES slower vertical growth and natural chinch bug and chemical resistance’s mean that your lawn will require less maintenance, mowing, and irrigation. An EMPIRE turf lawn that has been naturalized to the local climate requires minimal irrigation to remain healthy and thriving.
Reduced maintenance needs and durability are EMPIRES hallmarks. EMPIRE ZOYSIA grass was originally developed in Brazil, and thrives in both harsh tropical climates such as Southern Florida as well as more temperate regions as far north as Pennsylvania. EMPIRE Zoysia turf is one of the few grasses rated to perform well in all Zones, and it can thrive in varying soils and climatic conditions.
For instance, during a hurricane, we usually experience flooding and salt water over wash of properties. The only grass that we at SUPERIOR SOD (www.superiorsodnc.com) have seen survive such inundation of salt water – even after a week of being underwater is EMPIRE ZOYSIA.
