In October when husband Pieter did remove the HUGE Indian Hawthorn and also got rid of all the rattlesnake weeds, he did sow a mix of grass.
From Home Depot, Pieter did haul back home several sods, on a piece of ply wood on the bike rack behind our Toyota RAV4...
Supervisor Spooky boy is watching that it is getting laid straight!
This photo is from October 31, 2015 where some of the grass seed did actually come up but it died already in the spring.
The Centipede that was supposed to be mixed in, did never come up.
This was the reason that we had to dig up all our Azaleas since it got infested by this pesky Rattlesnakeweed or Hieracium venosum L.
Several loads and often they did run out of sods at Home Depot...
Keeping the ones that already got laid alive was also a struggle in mid June.
Sods that have been on pallets for days, seem to turn yellowish...
Light and water helps to change that quickly.
Row by row...
While we were in Florida, our cat sitter did turn on the sprinklers a lot so it is growing now and it has been mowed already.
Hoping to get this added section of lawn in good shape over time.
In the shade of our huge Magnolia tree, grass will not likely grow, so that has been left bare but grass will spread out.
Centipede is a grass variety that stands the heat and in winter it turns completely brown. That's a time that I hate.. looking so dreary!
Thanks for your visit!
