"It's a lot more simple than you'd think our machine does all the work we have a couple of guys who pack the pieces onto the pallet itself they drive over and I think it should take us about 12 hours to get it all off," said Fortex Grass employee Mark Graf.

According to Fortex Grass, a total of 115 pallets of grass was sold. fans were scheduled to pick up their pallets Sunday morning.
