I'll acknowledge up front that writing about sod is totally lame. You'd think a blogger with a cool name like Guitar Dad would enjoy far more thrilling endeavors. And I usually do. Really. Only I'm particularly focused at this moment on the new grass in my backyard.
We just spent a fair chunk of change to install 733 square feet of new St. Augustine turf. You see, our yard has a few "hot spots" that receive virtually no shade and sizzle in Florida's direct sunlight. These spots had grown quite, well, crispy. Our new sod gives our little piece of paradise a much greener and healthier appearance.
I'm dreading our next water bill, though. We've had to run the sprinklers every other day to nurture this fledgling grass, and I've done a great deal of manual hose-spraying as well.
Oh my. Is this what my life has come to – the care and cultivation of sod?
