The North Carolina Experiment Station released cold-hardy Raleigh St. Augustine in 1980. Although finer textured (with a narrower blade) and more tolerant of shade than Floratam, Raleigh develops dense ground coverage. Raleigh St. Augustine is medium green in color, SAD virus resistant and is best grown in heavier clay soils. History – Our farms grew the first Raleigh Foundation Stock in Texas. The stock was shipped from North Carolina to Texas, expanded as Foundation Stock at our farms, and then distributed to the Texas Growers through the Texas Sod Producers Association. Today, Raleigh is the most widely grown variety of St. Augustine in Texas.

  1. Hi,
    Would Amerishade be right for a mostly shaded area? It stays shaded pretty much all day. Also – How much for 2 pallets of Amerishade? Thank you!

  2. How much notice do you need for delivering 1 or 2 pallets of any of the St. Augustine grasses? And what are the timelines that you offer delivery? Thanks!

  3. My back yard is pretty much shaded all day from oak trees, which SA would be best Amerishade or Palmetto? Both have good shade ratings. Thanks

  6. Hi,

    I have about 1,500 sf of barren soil ready for sod installation (after minor raking, especially at edges) and about 1,000 sf of lawn area covered with grassy weeds.

    I will kill the grassy weeds.

    How much would it cost to install Raleigh St. Augustine sod in both areas?

    We live in South Austin.
