need to resod a front yard in Bedford area--it has shaded areas so I think we need to do St. Augustine

anyone have any recommendations for people who have SODDED your yard?

I have bought grass to add/fill in to existing bad spots before but we need to redo all the yard and I am not going to do that at my age..

I know hydro is cheaper but too much shade

i layed sod down on my entire front yard last year...did plenty of research, and found st. augustine a great choice.

there are two kinds of st. augustine you'll have available, raleigh and palmetto.

raleigh is better suited for full sunlight, while palmetto is better suited for more shaded areas...

i would highly suggest palmetto st. augustine, you'll pay about $20 per "stack", but it's well worth it...why?

it requires less water, grows great in shady areas, and stays greener throughout the winter months.

educate yourself a little more than what i've provided, and see what you think...good luck!

there's really not much to it, and when i say i did it myself, i had some buddies helping out...it does require some hard work!

but, where you're at, you can find some landscapers to come out and do it for you at a decent price...if you want to go that route, just make sure you have at least a few bids...

Default St Augustine sod

We've ordered from Sims Grass on Industrial & have been very pleased.

My husband & I sodded our back yard 3 years ago by ourselves. Not a fun thing to do in the heat, but we were pleased with the results.

We just got a pallet last week & sodded our front between the sidewalk & street. Still need extra sod, but will wait a bit.

Water the heck out of it when 1st laid & it'll take great.

Unless the chinch bugs get it- that's another story! They love St Augustine & the heat....
