    Here is a picture of the during and after bed prep. Dug out tons of fill & clay and used 14 yards of compost tilling it with the native underneath the fill.

    S.A.D. is a virus that many strains of St. Augustine (I think centipede as well) can get that causes chlorosis and die-back in St. Augustine lawns. No chemical treatment for it. Only "cure" is to cut out with sod cutter and lay reisitant variety. Floratam, Raleigh and Seville are options. A lot of folks will call it brown patch or some other disease. Truth is, it occurs when conditions are not favorable to diseases. Under close inspection, no disease symptoms exist.

    Ok. What types are typically sold around here? I don't have a whole lot of choice...I just get st aug, cent, or bermuda. Usually sandy back unless the customer doesnt want to pay for it, then I get gumbo.

    All of the varieties are available around here. Just need to ask who you are purchasing it from. They should know. If not, might not be getting it from the right people. Mike, Why the change from MCC?

    A few more from the last upload. Our weatherproof sticker on controllers. (At least they are supposed to be weatherproof.) Time will tell.

    Finished phase one on the reno on this landscape. A few before & afters. There are quite a few drift roses in the before pictures that we relocated in the landscape, since they weren't getting enough sun. The person who first sold them to them Charged $40 per 3 gal shrub. They paid retail at home depot and then retailed the retail price. No class. Anyways, a real landscape company came in and fixed it all. We will probably address the italian cypresses in the next phase. One doesn't look all that great at all. Not a big "cemetary tree" fan anyways. Enjoy. Here are a few of the before pictures.
