Hello there - primarily the topic, but to provide more details the back yard is just a dead place - mostly clear barren yard that cleared out last year. The front yard has grass that will need to be - whatever needs to happen prior to sod. I'm in Phoenix, Arizona.
I did some quick googling and the price seems high, am I wrong?
I wouldn't be surprised if a lot of people have had at least one "I dont want to live on this planet anymore" Farnsworth moment and this is probably as close as you'd get to cutting off from modern civilization. Though im not even sure doing something like this is even possible here since we dont exactly have a surplus of free land.
As the title says Khao Sod English is to close - where else do people get English Language news?
What other news sites or forums are members of this sub getting reliable decent English language Thai related news from?
I know Prachatai but would be very keen to hear of more. TIA
So I am getting Zoysia sod laid in my back yard, and it's a variety I haven't seen in this forum before. It's Palisades Zoysia, zone 7b, in northeast Arkansas. Any thoughts? Good, hearty variety?
I’m considering buying a pallet of sod, letting it establish for a couple months, then using the sodded area to creat plugs for the rest of the yard. Here’s a link that I got the idea from: https://proplugger.com/planting-grass-plugs-from-sod/
Anyone tried this and had success? I’m planning a n planting zoysia.
How difficult is it to find hammock sites in Dolly Sods? If I just show up and do a big loop, will I be able to find plenty of sites? Or will I need to be more careful and plan sites ahead of time?
Sent out a couple feelers today for a sod install in our back yard. The contractor mix they threw down didn’t take.
Just wondering if anyone has worked with any yard companies to put down turf or seed it and had a good experience.
In the fairy census there is a good narrative about a hiker pushing aside some forest bushes and noticing a different type of forested area beyond, which was explored for some time, and found very large just as a mountain area should be.
The first case was from a minister. He had a visitation to make and set off walking to the place. The walk was able to be shortened quite a bit by crossing a very large field. Though big, it was open and you could see the two large trees near the middle and the rough path leading to the distant exit stile far away. The priest opened the entry gate and started crossing the field as he had done dozens of times before. But when he reached the far side, there was no stile, no path, no cleared area which would allow him to even climb out.
Completely puzzled, he did the obvious: searching all along the hedged area for the missing stile and open patch. Nothing. As he went on he ultimately circumnavigated the entire area: no stile but also no original entry gate either. No matter where he arrived, there was the same impenetrable wall of thick plant staring back at him. He had, as the Irish say, stepped upon the Stray Sod and was trapped within its trickery. An hour or more later, he came to the spot where the exit stile should have been, and there it was.
What should we take from this? Although the field was familiar, and the entry was normal, certain pieces of the area, (the initial entry gate, the joining patch, and the exit stile) were gone. One's best hypothesis would be that this was imitative of the real field in the normal world, but NOT the real field. It could be walked into, but not walked out of until something changed to allow that. The priest also said that when he initially came to the spot where the exit stile should have been and found it changed, he heard a chuckling as if someone far off were laughing at him.
Second case was that of a young woman who was a housekeeper at a great house but was going to take the long walk back to her family in a nearby village. In order to get to that village, she had to cross over the hill called Lis Ard Fort, known as a "fairy fort" by the locals. She did that, and stood at the summit a while enjoying the view outward towards her own village in the distance.
Down the hill she danced until she came to a ditch at the bottom. She headed for a gap in the ditch, but when she arrived she blanked a second and was walking in the precise opposite way. She composed herse... keep reading on reddit ➡
I’m planning to play it on pc
Hello all, new first time homeowner, my front yard was sodded mid last year in zone 7b with tall fescue. Seemed very green and healthy and turned brown for winter. Now that spring is here I am noticing many yards are green/ on the way there yet mine looks still dead or dormant.
Is there anything I can do to help make sure it wakes up? I tried grabbing some to see if it pulled right out, seems to be fairly resistant to tugging but a lot of the brown blades just snap easily if I try to bend, which has me concerned that it’s all just dead.
Is the grass dead? Do I need to mow it down to thin it out some and make room for new growth? Is there anything I can do?
Getting very worried..
I was never able to play SoD until SoD 2. I thought this game would be like Sod2.... Oh how wrong I was... I've managed to complete it but I'm struggling like mad to keep people alive on my second run and recruit people with specific skills. The things I don't understand how to do properly are as follows.
Healing people, their max HP is low... On Sod2 you can spend meds to heal injuries or use a faid kit - also never seen a Dr in the game?
Repairing vehicles/weapons... Most of my shits yellow and had stayed yellow forever, apparently I need a tool kit skill or something? Who has that?
When attacking zombies... Why in the holy fecking sodding hell can they just break through it and Nash your face off? How do I stop that crap?
Well any generic advice wouldn't go a miss 😂
Sod2 is by far my favourite game of all time and I'm an absolute beast at it. But this game makes me feel like an absolute noon and I love it yet hate it.
Thanks in advance :D
I am planning on replacing my centipede grass with zoysia sod in the coming weeks and was wondering if anyone has tilled their lawn rather than using a sod cutter? After tilling, I plan on re-leveling and then throwing down some zoysia.
I purchased some sod/seed fertilizer (6-10-10 "with soil conditioners") to place within the ground before sodding my new lawn earlier last week. I have some leftover and would like to know if I can apply it on top of my old-established front lawn or new sod. Hybrid Fescue, zone 10a.
A massive open world where instead of managing a small community of a few survivors we will actually get to manage entire cities and fight for control in a map riddled with massive zombie hordes and other civilizations fighting for control of scarce resources like water from rivers, arable land etc etc.
Instead of managing a pitiful community of a dozen survivors at best you would be overseeing a city with dozens of survivors with the possibility to expand and integrate other survivors that knock on your gates (assuming you could actually build walls arround your settlement which would be awesome imo) or conquer territories by skirmishing into enemy territory where battles would be fought between dozens of survivors or maybe peacefully trade and eventually forming some kind of confederation. The technology to accomplish this already exists so I’m not sure what they are waiting for.
Just imagine a map with a scale comparable to that of Red Dead Redemption riddled with small settlements each fighting for control and supremacy. This is my wet dream tbh but I don’t think next SOD will be going in this direction. Any thoughs?
Title Correction (...16 square feet )
I removed a stone feature from our yard, which has left a 4x4 ft area of dirt.
Is it possible to buy a small amount of sod somewhere or should I put down seed now? ( March 11 ).
Another possibility I saw was buying enough plugs to cover the area. They come in sets of 30 or so for $50 at Home Depot.
Thanks in advance for any advice!
—— update —— Home Depot and Lowe’s - Sell 16in x 24in strips, but have not received any this year and do not know when it will come in. They usually have it by this time and do not have an ETA.
—— update —— King Ranch - Only does customer amount for Bermuda and St. Augustine, which I don't think I have in my yard ( which is mostly weeds _ ). So, mostly by the pallete.
—— update —— Calloways- (debbie lane) only does plugs and St. Augustine "Palmetto" Arlington Grass Company - They seem to be the only place that will sell in the increments that I want.
Thank you, everyone, for the suggestions.
Going to focus on the backyard only this year. I hear I should glyphosate the whole yard first... did you do this? If so, I have an ortho dial-n-spray hose end I can use. Afterwards though, I didn't know if I should till everything, or just aerate it to hell, then add some topsoil.
Any advice is appreciated. Austin, TX area. Any recommendations for sod providers?
We’re planning a trip with 3 kids (6, 5 and 1) to Dolly sods this year for 3-4 days and would love recommendations. We love to hike and camp but might opt to rent a place with the baby in tow. Where would you stay? Any tips on good trails for 6 and 5 yo? Other things to do/see - please share any/all recommendations. Thank you!
Does anyone have a Segregation of Duties rule set that they would be able to share? I am trying to create a sod matrix. Thanks in advance
Hello! im located in zone 10a and was wondering if you guys had any recommendations / thoughts on things i should google regarding planting either Sod or throwing grass seed? it's not a large yard and would only be for the front yard. the yard has been manually removed of any and all weeds and the soil was leveled out.
i guess i will need sturdy grass (2 dogs) and would like to not use too much water. anything else i should consider? never planted grass before.
So mainly posting for possibly just to ease my mind but would like other thoughts.
We built a house which closed in early November in the Charlotte area. They placed the bermuda sod late october and of course when dormant soon after. We hired a local lawn care service that pretty much visits every 6 or so weeks to perform treatments. The green areas are of course weeds they were apprehensive to apply any weed killer due to the new dormant sod. The roots feel sturdy and I included the neighbors yard for comparison. Pretty much was told that it should grow and fill in once the heat and sun comes out in the spring. Thoughts?
I understand it kind of is what it is now. Thanks
