When you think of the customers that use water supplied by the Brazos River Authority, cities, industry, power plants and others might come to mind. But did you know that this Brazos basin water is also used by a legend from Texas’ Old West heritage?

King Ranch Turfgrass has its roots in the South Texas ranch that was founded in the 1850s by Richard King, the son of Irish immigrants. In the years since, the King Ranch grew to be one of the largest in the world, comprising 825,000 acres stretching across parts of six counties – home to a vast herd of cattle.

Today, the ranch has operations in both Texas and Florida, in not only cattle, but also farming, citrus production, publishing and more. King Ranch Turfgrass was formed to supply sod for a wide-range of non-ranching commercial uses. The company’s sod can be found at homes and commercial properties across the state as well as high-end resorts, golf clubs and amusement parks. It has been used in stadiums at the University of Texas, Texas A&M University and University of Houston; as well as by professional teams ranging from the Houston Astros and Texans to the Houston Dynamos and the Dallas Cowboys practice facility.

The Brazos River Authority supplies water to two of the company’s seven farms, in Brazos and Hood counties. King Ranch Turfgrass also operates stores across the Lone Star State where you can buy sod varieties including St. Augustine, Bermuda, Zoysia and Buffalograss. They even offer an online service to help you pick out the right sod for your area and needs.
