On average about 50 pieces. Most are 12 x 12 to 12 X 14. There are a few they use to connect the pile that 12 X 36. A pallet will cover 500 square feet.
If you plant the grass right now, it is too hot, it just will not establish itself. I planted 500sq of this sod in April (I am in Dallas) and have spent $100s on water trying to keep the sod alive as it got too hot before the sod could establish itself. I really waited too late in Spring to plant the sod. Best time is in earlier Spring, probably in March or early fall probably late September or in early October when it will be cooler and give the sod a chance to establish itself. When it gets hot like it is in Texas, planting in Summer is a big gamble and will definitely require lots of watering. Once you get this sod established, it will always require more watering that other types of grasses and is not as hardy and can die out from many things that affect St. Augustine.
You can't order pieces online but you would have to call Home Depot to see if they carry St Augustine in pieces in your area. My Home Depot does not. You can order plugs when you order the pallet if you want to use plugs.
Harmony is a Palmetto variety that weathers the northern weather better than the Floritan version with is more common to Florida. I grows faster than the Floritan I have in most of my yard. On the other side of the long driveway I have I have Harmony (Palmetto) and it grows faster than the original Floritan in the rest of the yard.
Hi Bill. Thank you for your question. Yes, the St Augustine sod can be delivered providing you meet the minimum order requirement which is two pallets. Please check with your local store’s Customer Service for more information. Please let us know if we can be of further assistance. Rick_HD_OC
Each pallet covers approximately 500 square feet. You have 1600 square feet so you will need three pallets and a few pieces extra or plugs to cover a small part.
