Have you been able to experiment with editing your website at all yet or no?

The more you know how to do this the more fun you will have with it because it's a blast to keep editing and changing the pages.

its a program you can turn off and on to where if u dont know how to do something, you give the person you IP address and turn VNC on, and they access your computer from there home without coming to your house

Matt-
Can you tell me why the sod looks like that.
Is it dormant or why is it all brown?
Did it come in squares? Thats what it looked like on the pallets. I've only seen sod come in rolls.
I've never seen it like that before.

Steve

Yeah, I'm from Oregon, the part of the country Sod is grown, and I've never seen sod look like that before, very strange.

70% of the yards around here are dead,lol. i have never seen rolls of sod, i have always seen sod squares on pallets, maybe its different in places i dont know.

but the 70% of grass that is dead will be green in the spring and summer, and then it goes back brown again in the winter.


It has always been like this down here,lol

Must be a completely different type & season of grass. All the yards in my area still stay somewhat Green during the winter, maybe cause we have lots of rain. But, I guess every region of the US has different conditions and materials. Take for example the ground covering you use, what is that hay straw or something, You'd never see anything like that here in Oregon, or very rarely, everything I've seen here is either pebble bark or a bark of some sort, or small rocks, like pebble stones.

I live in Seattle and we have only rolls of Green sod here in the winter or summer year round. I just drove past a sod farm yesterday.
I would think it would be easier to roll out a 50' roll than put all those squares together.

The only time the grass turns brown like that is when people don't water during the summer. Thats funny.
We don't use straw either.

Are you using Zoysia Grass, feels like carpet when you walk on it?
Looks good in the summer and dead in the winter.

is your camera messed up, my computer messed up, or did you lay sod that was dormant?

I lay at least 50,000sq ft of sod each year (starting last year) from March-Late Nov. and never have seen or put down sod that was dormant. and I even pick up fresh sod from the farm that is cut while I wait (only 10min per pallet, if that long). But we have raked snow off a lawn and re-sodded before, lol.

Here in Georgia, if you buy sod after mid-Oct it will look brown like that. However you buy it in the winter and some places sell it and it has been overs seeded with rye. The rye takes root after the install and then the other takes root when spring and summer comes around. Don't see many rolls around here although we do have them. And trust me it has to be easier to roll than to place the squares down!!!!! http://www.gophergraphics.com/forum/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/laugh.gif
