EMPIRE Turf Zoysia, a wear and drought tolerant, low maintenance, chinch bug resistant grass, has become popular for properties with lawn needs in southern climates.

The proprietary new Sod Solutions eCommerce website allows landscapers, contractors, designers and others with a need for turfgrass, to order and have the correct variety and amount of sod delivered directly to their doorstep.

Through a series of questions including location, sun vs. shade ratio, and budgetary constrictions, the tool will help determine the correct variety of sod, from selections of St. Augustine and bermudagrass to the popular EMPIRE Turf®, Zoysia Grass. Next, the area calculator determines the amount of sod the job will require.

Using Google Earth satellite technology, the program can pinpoint the exact parameters of a landscape project, and using a variety of pin-points on the map, determine the precise amount of sod needed to correctly complete the project.

The tool then determines the closest availability, shipping date and provides an instant price to help save the customer money and time.

According to Justin Wallace, executive marketing manager of Sod Solutions, the system is a game-changer in the industry.

“Over the course of the last decade, we have become an internet-first shopping society. You can have a washer-dryer delivered to your door tomorrow with a few simple clicks. We felt that grass should be no different. Now with our system, you can see prices instantly and have a new EMPIRE Turf lawn within a few days based on your schedule.”
