At Green Century Services we believe that if you’re willing to put the time and effort into maintaining your lawn then the grass should be of the best quality to make the task all the easier on you. 

We sell the following types of grasses delivered direct from our grass farm.



Grass is a monocotyledon plant, herbaceous plants with narrow leaves growing from the base. A common kind of grass is used to cover the ground in a lawn and other places.

Lawn grass is often planted on sports fields and in the area around a building. Sometimes chemicals and water are used to help lawns to grow.

Grass plays an important role in enhancing the look of your house. If you really want to know how to care for a lawn you need to focus in and learn something about the individual grass plants that comprise it. After all, a lawn is simply an area of land covered by one or more types of grass plants.


Here’s what you need to know on how to install grass in 5 easy steps:

1. Prepare the ground before ordering – It’s IMPORTANT to prepare your ground first before ordering. Your sod needs to be laid within 6-12 hours once you’ve received it.

2. Grade Surfaces – Carefully level all surfaces to be sodded. Soil surfaces should be 1 inch below walkways, patios, and driveways to accommodate sod thickness. A light rolling will show soil depressions or surface irregularities. These can then be leveled.

3. Fertilize the Area – Fertilizer will be used by sod over the next few days as it is watered. Turf starter fertilizer can be applied either on the soil surface or on top of sod after it is down. Apply fertilizer evenly and at the recommended rate. Rake in lightly. Be sure the soil is even and smooth before laying sod. Use Greenhorizons turf starter fertilizer for best results.

4. Lay Sod Within 12 Hours – Begin laying sod as soon as possible (within 6 – 12 hours) upon delivery, especially in the spring (May- June) to avoid damage from heating. Sod that will remain stacked on a pallet for an extended period of time must be unstacked to allow air circulation. 

5. Water. Water. Water. – Water within 15 minutes of laying the first roll! Do not wait until the entire area is sodded before watering. As soon as a “sprinkler-sized” area is laid, begin watering it. Then go on to the next section. On a hot day, do not leave laid sod for more than an hour without water. On a cooler, overcast day, do not leave it for more than 2 hours.


Most commercial landscapers use sod to establish a lawn after a building has been completed. Many new homes are left with a barren landscape that the homeowner must tend to. Laying sod is much more effective than planting grass seed. The seeds are often eaten or scorched by the sun and require multiple plantings that lead to unprofessional results. Laying sod is a faster and more effective way to get your lawn started. Sod is tender and must be cared for with dedication, but you will have a plush, full lawn after a few months of work.

Watering – Sod should be watered at least 4 hours per day (2 hours in the morning and 2 hours in the evening) for the first two weeks unless there is sufficient rainfall.

Mowing – Let your sod grow for at least two weeks before mowing. Mow the new grass at the highest blade setting.

Fertilizing – Sod needs to be fertilized within two weeks with a 100% organic fertilizer. The most common types of organic fertilizer are ironite and milorganite and they can be purchased at any home improvement store. Do not use a chemical fertilizer until the sod has rooted into the ground.

Types of Grass

Shade Loving St Augustine Grass – Palmetto Grass

If your area is covered by trees, or your neighbor’s house is so tall it blocks sunlight into parts of your landscape, there is a specially grown turf that performs better in shady landscapes.

This turf is called Palmetto. You must still receive a minimum of 5 hours of sunlight per day all at one time or scattered throughout the day.

If your landscape does not get at least 5 hours a day you have a few options:

• Plant the shade-loving turf knowing it until eventually get thinner and thinner and one day disappear.
• Switch your turf in your backyard regions to synthetic turf.
• Redesign the landscape into a xeriscape looking landscape using gravels and plantings.
• Redesign the landscape into a bird or butterfly sanctuary.

Zoysia Grass

There are several types of zoysia turf available today. The primary difference about zoysia turf is the grass grows horizontally rather than vertically.

This means as the turf gets older and more mature your sod is woven very tight which eliminates the ability of weed seeds flying in the air to land and germinate. Brown patch does not affect Zoysia Grass. Your purchase of zoysia eliminates the need to purchase fungicides each year to spray and control brown patch.
