Our seed selection is very extensive and covers a complete line of vegetable seed, grass seeds, forage seed, deer plot seeds, and custom made mixes. These are sold by the pound and in pre-measured bags.
I am wanting to plant warm weather food plots for my deer this spring and I am looking for what the best things to plant are. I am currently considering Red clover and cowpeas. I am also wondering how much Lime and fertilizer would go well with these choices. I am only planting about 5 acres.
I have a 250′ x 200 ‘ area that I want to grow grass on.
1. How much seed and hay will I need?
a. How much will it cost if I use St. Augustine?
b. How much will it cost if I use Burmuda?
2. How much will it cost to sod 50000 sq ft?
a. St. Augustine:
Bermuda seed is rated at 2-3lbs per 1,000 square feet for new planting and .5-1lb per 1,000 square feet for repair. The cost of Bermuda seed has sky rocketed over the past 2-3 years, and it ranges between $5.00 – $10.00 per pound. We have new seed coming in this year and are not quiet sure what the selling prices will be. Bermuda is a warm season grass, and is not planted until the temperature stays above 65 degrees F at night in our area. So you would need 3 each 50lb bags for new planting and no more than 1 50lb bag for repair. Bermuda sod would cost $85.00 pallet and require 111 pallets. There is 450 square feet per pallet.
Total Sod Cost – roughly $9000.00
Total seed and straw – $1000.00
Sod can be installed immediately and provide erosion control, and seed will require waiting for approximately three months.
If you need more information, let me know.
We carry 3 different types of mixes containing red clover and cowpeas. Come by the store and we can give you a complete list of ingredients and prices.
We blend these at our mill here in Huntsville with fresh ingredients. We also have all the lime and fertilizers to go with the plot mixes.
My mother-in-law always bought her green bean seeds from you. I believe the variety was mccandlish or mccandless. Do you have any pole bean seeds of a similar name? I am not sure of spelling. Thank you for checking.
We have just cleared a lot behind our church. We have some shade trees, 1 1/2 ac to 2 ac. close to 65000 sq.ft. It has been suggested that we need to use a mix of 30% creeping red fescue,25% hard fescue,20%chewing fescue,15%slender creeping fescue,10% sheep fescue. Do you mix all of these, if so what is the cost per 50 to 100lb bags. We would be very interested in your suggestings on a shady hard to grow. Would pictures help?
Do you have St. Augustine sod or plugs available for purchase? Or can it be ordered?
No sorry, we have a sod farm and we grow and sell Bermuda, Zoysia, and Fescue. Bermuda is $1.25 per square or $85.00 per pallet (450 square feet per pallet), Fescue is $100.00 per pallet and Zoysia is $190 per pallet. We do sell the St. Augustine seed, but I do not have a current price, I will check and update you.
Yes we do have a Garvin’s Shady mix the runs about $85 per 50lb bag. Please feel free to give us a call and ask for Dennis or Matt 256-534-5637. To cover the square footage listed above would require 160 lbs per acre. The sheep fescue and slender creeping fescue are very similar to the hard fescue, but I am sure we can blend what you need. Going with your specific blend may increase cost to $100-$125 per bag, but we do not have all the current cost on the fescues for this year, just the standard Kentucky 31, etc.
We have a Mezcla pole lima bean that is dark green leaves with flat pods 3-5″ matures in 120 days. We also have half runner, and other pole beans.
