For those of you that weren't following my last thread feel free to chime in with your wonderful advice! If you were following my last thread, I look forward to hearing your advice also! To update the new people; I'm far from a landscaper, however I recently decided to sod my lawn. Being that we have a shade tree which I pruned majorly so our lawn now receives sunlight. I'm in Texas (Hot Weather). We winded up planting Palisades Zoysia. Here are the pictures following the laying of the sod. Note* these photo's are about six days following the laying of the sod. The sod looks excellent, watering 2-3 times a day, morning, early noon, and late afternoon. Note* I did not have the money to install an irrigation system, so we started with some cheap sprinklers then went for some better sprinklers. After getting the second set of sprinklers I realized I was having to put my feet on the new lawn, so I went and scooped up a third set of sprinklers. I now have impulse sprinklers that cover the entire area. I applied half the recommended rate of Scott's Turf Builder before laying the sod. Soil was a little high on the alkaline side. I'm hoping over time I can get the PH of the soil down by composting and natural organics. Questions: Can I purchase anything to mix in a spray bottle-water hose to bring the PH down overtime safely? I'm very satisfied with the outcome of the sod, excellent in green for most parts of the yard. However, I have noticed yellow or browning around the edges of the sod. (Almost appears as thatch or something that should be raked up.) Would anyone know what would cause this around the edges? Too much water? Not enough? It almost seems as if the edges of the sod are drying out? However, in the center of the sod it remains green. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. I'm also looking for any advice for the upkeep of my newly laid sod? When to fertilize? What's the best fertilizer to use for the first time on Warm season grass? Thanks for all the input!
