Its been about 1 month since install and its looking pretty good. Here is a shot from a few weeks ago: Here is a shot from the past weekend. All of the spots of brown have green in them but are taking some time greening all the way up due to cooler temps. The brown spot farthest away has alot more shade then the rest of the sod this time of year so its really taking a long time. Someone will say something negative about the gaps in the sod but it was hot, dry and by the time I got to the top of the hill I had enough. I will topdress next year and fill in the gaps. As you can see in the second picture I have edged around the trees and had waited until the sod had rooted to edge. Next spring I plan to install zoysia farther up the hill due to increased shade tolerance.
