    Tell your former customer to ask his current LCO.

    Sounds like a sod job to me.

    it really depends on what kind of grass he has. Some will go dormant in drought, some will just plain die and it also matters how long. Even bahia will eventually die from no water.

    I agree with the others, former client???? Makes me wonder why it matters unless they are wanting to come back at a premium and pay me to resod. Time is money and advice goes to paying clients.
