My neighbor and I recently split the cost of a narrow piece of property between his house and mine. It was never wide enough to build on, so it has sat vacent since our subdivision was built. It's quite wild. We used to mow it every once in a while so it wouldn't be an eyesore, but over the years, we let it go. Now that we own it, we split it down the middle, and are in the process of extending out fences out to encorporate it into our back yards. Now we are faced with the task of taming it. We removed most of the saplngs (mostly tallow), but how do we convert wild into St. Augustine grass? Should we use a herbicide, then sod over it? Should we till it, then seed it? What is SOP in this situation. Thanks, G in Houston.
