TY for correction .... my keyboarding is not that great ...

So ... there are some small gators around SJP ... I'm not surprised .... as long as you use common sense ... they would be more of an exotic viewing encounter than a danger.

I have read thru the comments on this forum (and others) and still undecided. The yard will be mostly sunny. My intent is to have a lawn service and I have no problems with liberal watering.

So anyone with hard opinions, I am all ears (Zoysia or Bermuda).

Will be putting in turf before too long. I'm going Bermuda. Both are dormant and brown in the winter but Bermuda is stays green longer and goes green sooner. Zoysia is extremely dense and tends to block weeds better and is softer underfoot but, according to my landscaper, Zoysia requires cutting more often to keep it looking nice.

When they go dormant, probably in the next month or so, neither will need much water over the winter.

You can contact the agricultural cooperative in Brunswick, but I believe Bermuda had to be cut more and is more prone to fungus and other diseases. I planted Zoysia Crown grass and am very satisfied.

IMHO..It seems to Zoysia yards in SJP are more robust... to riding mowers, disease, and lower watering.

Any updates on the modification of Woodlands Park, the status of Legacy Park, the Marina gate and the newly proposed Moss Hammock Wynd extension to Pine Forrest. Seem like out town of SJP is turning into a city. Not exactly what I was looking for, but at least it is a lot like back home.

Default Legacy Park

I just saw a blurb on the local tv channel website that the residents of SJP are upset about the expansion of Legacy Park. Anyone know anything about this?

I assume it is a continuation of the conflict about the small lot setbacks in Legacy Park. Which channel was it, and what do you remember?

The discussion here back in August has conflicting information about whether the side setbacks were 5 or 10 feet. That would result in houses being 10 or 20 feet apart. Legacy Park was also being allowed smaller setbacks from the golf course side. Discussion on pages 214 and 215 of this thread: Thoughts or information on St James Plantation

I would suggest not buying a lot in Legacy Park until the conflict is settled and actual plats are available.

I don't live in Coastal Carolina (though my parents do), but I have some Zoysia grass in my yard because my neighbor does, so that side of my yard is all Zoysia.

I abhor my Zoysia for half the year-- from about October 15 to April 15, and love it from April 15- October 15. Helpful, right?

I HATE that the Zoysia turns completely brown and dry for 6 months of the year. It looks like pure hell. But once it greens up, I love that it looks nice even when it is long.
