Q: How far will you travel?

A: Our normal range covers all of Louisiana and Texas, but we will travel almost anywhere in the U.S.


Q: What time of the year do you plant?

A: We plant all year round for bermuda grasses; but, it does depend upon moisture conditions and proper time of year for seeds.


Q: Does the tractor we provide need to have a 3 pt. hitch or a PTO?

A: No, all that is necessary is 70 horse power, 1 hydraulic remote, and fuel.


Q: What exactly are you planting?

A: With Bermuda grasses, we plant mainly the “tops” of the grass.   These are carefully chosen to ensure viability, and are irrigated, fertilized, and very mature.  If it is early in the season, prior to spring growth, we plant roots of the same carefully chosen grasses.  If we are seeding your pasture, seed variety is purchased seed of the highest quality.


Q: How much grass do you plant per acre?

A: We plant approximately 24 bushels per acre.


Q: Is there a limit to the amount of acreage you will plant?

A: No, there is no limit, we will plant 1 acre or 50,000 acres.


Q: Do you offer any guarantees?

A: We cannot guarantee Mother Nature.


Q: How long does it take for the grass to establish itself?

A: Under favorable growing conditions you will see grass production in about 90 days. This means having proper rainfall, using the proper herbicide, and using the fertilizer program we recommend.


Q: Do you have any references?

A: Yes, you will be given references on request.


Q: Where do you get the grass that you are planting?

A: We have 7 fields from Victoria, TX, to Lake Charles, LA. We tend to these fields ourselves to ensure that we plant only mature tops.


Q: Are you available after the grass has been planted?

A: Yes, we make ourselves available to all of our customers for consulting on how to properly take care of your pasture land.


Q:  How do I check for moisture?

A:  After the land is prepared you need at least an inch of rain.   Check to see if the top layer of moisture meets the bottom layer of moisture.  There should be no dry line between the layers of moisture.


Q:  Do you plant Coastal Bermuda?

A: Yes; but, normally the preferred grasses are Jiggs Bermuda and Tifton 85 Bermuda, both having different qualities and uses.


Q:  I am thinking about installing an irrigation system.  Who do you recommend?

A:  Yes, we can assist with helping you determine the best method of irrigation.  We work with a number of different distributors
on this and can recommend someone near you.
