I'd like to redo my lawn but can't decide between tall fescue and st. augustine. I have a large lot beside my home also so I could experiment. Anybody in Carolina have these types? I like the fact that tall fesue does not thatch as bad as some others (according to what I've read), so I'm leaning that way. I'm wanting to stand out in my neighborhood and mow at 3.5 to 4", everybody shaves their lawns here. Currently, I have a clover lawn!
