A life-long Lafayette resident, Paul Romero opened The Grass & Rock Shoppe in 2007 while working with Turf Grass Farms, a wholesale sod grower in Welsh, Louisiana. He recognized the need for folks in Lafayette to be able to purchase high-quality grass and clean landscape rock along with soil and mulch. The positive response was even better than he imagined.
Paul saw an even greater opportunity to add plants, trees, and water garden supplies to the product offerings and presented the idea to Mandy Walker Hebert, President of Turf Grass Farms. Mandy is a mother of two kids who has a passion to be a part of creating livable areas for families to spend quality time together outdoors.
Paul remains aboard as General Manager. Together, he and Mandy are building a team of experts to help the folks in Lafayette and South Louisiana makes their outdoor living spaces a quality part of their lives.
Mandy’s family has been the leading turf grass grower in South Louisiana since 1985. She has always recognized that their success can only be judged through the customer’s eyes, which means growing a high-quality product and giving customers the personal attention they deserve. Mandy brings that same commitment and focus to our customers. Her desire is to be a part of creating areas for families to spend quality time together outdoors.
Paul is downright persnickety about quality and service. From the very first day he opened The Grass & Rock Shoppe, he has been relentless in his focus on clean rock and the finest grass and mulch. Even though he’s our General Manager, you won’t find him behind a desk. Instead, you’ll usually see him on a delivery truck visiting job sites and making sure that each customer is highly satisfied with their purchase.
