That’s awesome man!

Yeah I didn’t want to be a negative Nancy but I thought that sod looked pretty damn rough when you guys were laying it. every time I’ve laid sod at least around here it’s been lush and deep green.

That part was normal, for the centipede sod. It was still in the "dormant" state coming out of winter. When it's dormant it's brown. It doesn't green up nice until it warms up. That wasn't the problem, perse. For the most part I think whomever cut the sod cut it too shallow. A lot of it was too thin and barely had any soil on it.

Bermuda sod is usually pretty fragile too. Fescue sod is usually nice and green, with a nice thick dirt base on it. I'm not sure why the difference. I love fescue, but it doesn't grow in sand.

Centipede also doesn't get a deep green, more of a yellowish green. If it goes deep green, you've actually applied too much nitrogen, at which point it's gonna basically choke itself out.

@mwemaxxowner, Yeah, I too didn’t want to say anything when you first posted this sod. My backdoor neighbor put in sod a couple of years ago and your original pics reminded me of theirs. I helped them lay the sod and in all honesty it probably weighed about 1/3 the weight of what my sod weighed when I put it down, it was simply thin. This all said, It’s taken a couple of years and careful and consistent grooming on their part but it looks just dandy these days. I have no doubt with a bit of patience and the following the plan you have layed out, yours as it looks today will be just a distant memory a couple years down the road. I’m happy that someone took responsibility and is willing to help you, what a stand up thing to do. Good things come to good peeps. I wish you green pastures in the days ahead. :)

The way centipede runs, it'll definitely fill in. It'll just take some time. I'm gonna pull up the worst pieces and replace, other than that I'll leave it be and work on the bare spots.

My father made a surprise visit, from Idaho to SoCal, to see the progress on my raptor build in my shop(which I’ll soon be revealing). I also know the old man just wanted to use my tools and lift ;) Gotta say he somehow managed 15 mpg with 39’s on the Rubi.
