    I'm going to till in some old grass and put down some new grass. They origanally put down centipede and now want st augustine. After I till and roll the yard what should I put down before I lay the sod.
    Thanks Rob in Niceville florida(panhandle)

    Unless this existing turf is killed off COMPLETELY, yo will have a NICE mix of Centipede and St. Augustine. Essentially, it will defeat the purpose.

    You should use a non selective herbicide and nuke the whole yard, wait 4 weeks or what ever the label says for reseed/sod then Harley Rake the yard. hand rake, roll and seed or sod. It works every time for me.
