Benefits of Sod for Your Richmond, TX Yard

Speedy Grass & Nursery offers multiple types of high-quality sod in the Richmond and Houston, TX area. One of the main reasons to invest in sod is that it gives you instant gratification. You’ll get thick, lush grass in a few weeks. You don’t need to protect seeds from foot traffic or birds either. You can walk on it almost immediately after installation. Sod can be patched or installed any time of the year. Best of all, our sod is locally sourced to ensure your grass is acclimated to the Texas humid climate. If we don’t have the type of sod you need in stock, we’ll get it for you!


Types of Sod We Have Available

At Speedy Grass & Nursery, we offer many different types of sod. Each type has its unique personality to ensure it fits the weather needs and look of your yard. Check out our top sellers:

St. Augustine

St. Augustine is one of the most popular types of grass due to its thick, lush feel. It doesn’t handle cold weather well and isn’t for high-traffic areas. Our favorites are Palmetto and Raleigh St. Augustine grass.


Bermuda grass requires full sun that we often have in the Houston area. It's drought-resistant and terrific for high-traffic areas. We offer Bimini, Super Sport, 419 Tifway, and Celebration Bermuda grass brands.


Zoysia grass is dense, beautiful grass perfect for hot, humid areas. The versatility and toughness of this grass make it great for high-traffic areas. Our go-to Zoysia grass brands are Emerald, Empire, Cavalier, and Palisades.

Choosing the Best Sod for Your Lawn

There are a few factors that may affect your sod selection. The amount of daily sunlight shining on your yard will impact its growth levels. Grass types like Bermuda or Zoysia grass need about four to six hours of daylight each day. St. Augustine grass doesn’t let the shade stop it from thriving. It’s also important to know the condition and type of soil in your yard. Your soil must have a well-aerated base to ensure your grass can get nutrients.
