What would you guys do with this area? Do you to trees in the neighboring lot and the house this is about as much sun as this area ever sees.

Ideas?

Yeah. I've thought about the mulch bed. The thought of weed pulling sounds terrible. I'll get a couple pallets of Saint Augustine sod and see how that does.

Looking good!

I'm hoping the storms in the next few days bring some seriously needed rain. The past few days of heat has really kicked my yard into overdrive.

My rye has finally started to really fade, but I have brown underneath in a lot of places. I started running the sprinklers over the weekend and will hit it with some fertilizer this weekend to try and get the bermuda really going. Rain would be great.

Is it normal for fresh sod to have some brown in it after a few days? I did the starter fertilizer.. but it seems as if the top 6 squares from each pallet are struggling more than the rest.. everything else has a little dead grass in each square but nothing major..

Yeah. It is not uncommon. Especially in the top. Those squares dried out first due to sun exposure on the top of the pallet.

How are you watering?

Until a couple days ago I was watering morning and afternoon every day (first 10 days)

Now I'm watering only every other morning and a quick water every afternoon just to try to keep it moist

Check the ground where those squares are and see how wet it is. It may be too much water. I laid a few squares a couple weeks ago and only needed to water once daily. It was hand watering bermuda squares, so I'm sure the requirements are a bit different. Average temps haven't been extremely hot so if you have a lot of shade, it may be a case of over watering
