Bermuda reeled with Locke C 125

Here are some pics of my old home reeled with a Locke C 125. It is 419 Bermuda and the turf was sanded with riversand.

Hey dave do you like the bermuda that you had or do you like the zoysia that you have now? I am going back and forth

I think Dave is going to tell you he prefers bermuda, he will chime in soon. I know Dave outside forum and he has told me several times before that if he had it to do all over again it would be bermuda.

I like the Bermuda better since I'm used to it and liked cutting it real short, 1/2".
I hated the seed heads and also its excessive growth, dollar spot etc.
I am posting pictures of my Emerald that is recovering from grubs/fungus, it should be fully recovered by years end.
I think Zoysia is the way to go but use a different type, like Myers or one of the other type's. Some have wide blades and other have fine blades like the Emerald. The Zoysia's do grow very slowly so recovery from whatever will take longer! What ever Bermuda you buy make sure it's "Certified" Greg Norman turf Bermuda is good, Tiftsport is good and you can buy it 10 years from now and you will get the same turf because its genetically made.
If your buy bermuda that isn't certified, you can get anything and they will say its 419. The same is true now for the Emerald Zoysia, just can't win for loosing. Good luck
Do a good prep work before you sod, put in irrigation to if you can!

House is history and so is the chair, front doors are double, maybe that is what looked weird, they aren't flush with the brick, must be the angle of pic.
I have the home now with the Emerald Zoysia, under the Zoysia thread, I prefer the Bermuda, just can't get use to the Emerald.
