    And you still blame the weather and lawn guys for the yard being a bed of weeds? Give me your zip code, I bet I can find you Sod for less than $.30..

    the reason your yard is filled with weeds is because the previous owners did not take care of their yard or did not want to pay for the professionals to do it.

    Hurricane blown seeds and mower deck transfer is highly unlikely...your lawn already had the weed seeds in it, you just failed to prevent them from germinating.

    Ok then my dad told me wrong, my apologies. Yes, I am surrounded by weeds. My zip is 33498.

    Also, Bermuda is supposed to grow faster and more dense than SA and most weeds. Since it's in a seed I can over seed an area to crowd out weeds. (https://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/lh007) My water retention pond in the back yard means I don't pay for water for my lawn so that is not an issue. So why wouldn't round up / renting a tiller and seeding the area be less expensive than sod?

    I could see your point if I actually cared about saving my SA.

    I think I already mentioned that sod is out of my budget. I have 21,780 sq feet of yard.

    21K is that the lot size or just the green area.
