Representing more than 80 sod producers and vendor members, the Turfgrass Producers of Texas recently launched a new website to help consumers select the grass that is right for their project and locate a turfgrass producer nearby to supply the grass. The new website can be found at TexasGrass.com.
The website features a membership directory with an interactive locator map, turfgrass maintenance tips, and a library of videos on Texas turfgrass management. Information on membership, event registration, varieties of grass grown in the state, and research papers. The site offers tools for consumers, landscapers and turf industry experts.
The new website combines the content from two previous websites and three URLs, TexasGrass.com and TXSod.com, as well as directs visitors to GetTheGrassFacts.com to the video page on the new site.
“This new state-of-the-art website will serve as a resource for Texas consumers to learn about grass suited for the Texas environment, and help them make the right choice for their lawn. It also serves as a resource for our turfgrass producer members to stay in touch with our association,” said Brent Batchelor, executive director of the Turfgrass Producers of Texas.
The new website was developed by the team at What’s Your Avocado? Marketing and Public Relations, a firm that specializes in turfgrass industry marketing and based in Mount Vernon, WA.
