Big ones?  4, I think.

2. Anything you are looking forward to this week?

It's Friday, so I'm a little bit late.  But, I'm looking forward to the semester starting on Monday.

3. Grass in your yard, real or sod?

I have no idea. But, most grass here is seeded, so I'll go with that.

...and yet, you have never, ever offered an apology.  Go figure, perhaps if you wish to receive them, you should learn to give them when warranted.  No?  Yea, I didn't think so, pick up that double standard and onward ho!

<p>Yeah, glad those were taken down. Where is everyone else? Still waiting for that apology from PKA.

What apology?

<p>Yes, sod IS real grass but it is not something you grow yourself and it is usually quite obvious the look of sod (to the poster/s who are unsure what they have). At least where I live, you can definately tell the difference. </p>

You must have some poor installers of sod if you can tell the difference.  It's grass, cut into strips.  Really.

1. No idea, not important to me.

2. Well now that it's Friday, hopefully a quiet weekend, I need some downtime.

3.  Um sod is real, do you mean turf which is not real?  

This is the big grass debate?  Who thinks sod isn't real?  Sod is grass cut in strips to be moved somewhere else.  LoL, but if you mean was our yard planted as grass or sod, then the answer is I only know the parts we planted and that is a mixture of both.  Most of the yard has been here for decades.

I've had St. Augustine in Central Texas for years and I agree about the texture.  I tried replacing it but it's the only kind of grass that will really thrive in the area.  As I mentioned in the other thread, St. Augustine has to be laid as sod.  You can't buy it as seed.
