Good Things Happening at Superior Sod


Spring is here after a long, unrelenting winter, but we all have to
take what Mother Nature gives us in stride.

We are moving forward and good things are happening:
1. We at Superior Sod and Garden Supplies will have a full rack
of Sabal Palms by the first week in April. These will range in height
from 5′ to 14′ tall – mostly full booted, but we will also carry Slick
Sabals.
2.  We already have over 1,000 Bales of Long Leaf Pine Straw
under our newly built Pine Straw Shed that keeps our Long Leaf Pine
Straw fresh, dry, and maintains it’s nice reddish color. It goes fast,
because people know our Long Leaf Pinestraw Bales are larger than our
competitors, and does NOT have the trash of leaves and twigs that you
have to cull.
3.  And, we have our 2 fertilizers in and under cover – these 2
fertilizers are RIGHT for whatever your particular Southern Warm
Season Grass is.  We have 5:5:15 and !6:4:2 in 50 lb. bags.
We are, by far, much less expensive than the box stores, as their
fertilizers come in tiny 20 lb. bags, but they sell them at the same
price as our 50# bags. And just a note; it is too early to fertilize
now. Please wait until the soils warms up and your grass is turning
green. When applying fertilizer too early the roots will not take up
the nutrients you are trying to feed.  And finally for another
important point, Centipede does NOT like Nitrogen. The fertilizer for
Centipede should always have no more than 5% Nitrogen. It is best to
purchase fertilizer with Iron already mixed in. Our two fertilizers have Iron already incorporated.

Renovating your yard for increased property value

The fall is an excellent time to replace that worn out tired old lawn and to have a lawn that you will enjoy when spring rolls around. Big Al has some advice for people thinking about resodding their yards to make them more enjoyable and attractive as well as to add curb appeal and value to the property.

Our customers are loving their new Empire Zoysia Lawns!

I have been buying sod from Don and Al for close to twenty years. Over that span I have found Don and Al and the entire Superior Sod crew to be professional in all aspects of turf sales. I know that these two fine gentlemen will always do everything they can to provide me the sod I need when I need it. Look no further. You have found your sod supplier for Southeastern North Carolina!

 

Ryan Wells told us that he was very grateful for our suggestions and thorough advice.    He is thrilled with his new lawn. His pictures show how well he prepared his soil prior to installing his new Empire and the finished product.This is the first lawn he ever installed.

Merits of Empire Zoysia

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 it’s 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, EMPIRE’S 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 EMPIRE’S 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.
