My 3x3" is about 50 of the CP plant web site portions according to a couple of local members here.
So 50X 12(not including shipping)= 600$ vs 40$, hardly "a deal".
You can see how dense the mat of sod is, this can cover a large area if you take plugs and replant.
Emergent growth will never get this dense.
Those are some nice looking plants. Where were you when I needed those UG? True the patch from that site is just a thin strip of about 2" of UGs. Are the individual patches in the picture of the tupperware what you would normally sell as a patch?
I have dropped the price of my UG to $17 per portion because someone backed out and I need to get it out while I'm in NYC (otherwise it will die on the remainder of my trip!). $17 for one portion, $29 for two!
