    Why would anyone want Bahia sod? I would never put that stuff anywhere but maybe a roadside. You would have to mow it every day in the summer if it was fertilized and watered. It is good in a drought situation, and plenty of people have it in their yard around my area. But not by choice. Is there some different variety out there that I just don't know about?

    You can buy Bahai as sod? Why? Sod it with anything other than Bahia or if you must have the horrible stuff intentionally - seed it. The county has great luck seeding it on roadsides here.

    thats what the rest of the yard is. it would look stupid if 90% was bahia and the other 10% was st aug.

    It may be that Verizon and the county have bought all there is? The drought has been bad and it has very likely put a damper on sod production.
