what kind of sod is it?thank you
This was St. Augustine sod used on these steps. Zoysia also works very well on similar applications if you have the proper sunlight.
Additional sod tips:• Always inquire about delivery charges when ordering your sod.• After laying or rolling your sod, you can opt to roll it with a sod roller — a water-filled drum that you roll over the sod so the roots make good contact with the soil. Your sod can still get established without it
until your new sod has had a chance to establish a good root structure, avoid walking on it.• For a week or two after that, avoid very heavy activity, such as heavy foot traffic, concentrated activities and dog traffic.• Be sure to gather more specific information and recommendations about sod care in your

3. Lay the sod. Once your ground is prepared, lay the sod pieces along a straight line such as the driveway or a sidewalk. Push the joints of the sod pieces tightly against one another, avoiding overlapping or gaps, and stagger pieces like you would with rows of bricks. Use a sharp carpet knife to cut
cut pieces for irregularly shaped areas or to fit around irrigation heads or plants, and water in your sod within 20 minutes of laying it.

live, sod can be laid nearly year-round if the weather is mild enough. Spring and fall are typically the optimum times, however, because the temperatures are mild and the chances of rain are higher, leading to better root development. Check with the experts in your area for the best times to lay sod in
Why start a lawn from sod? • You want instant gratification.• You want a type of lawn grass that is not easily grown from seed (for instance, Bermuda, zoysia, centipede).• You want to quickly establish a new lawn in spring, sumer or fall (people in warm climates can install sod throughout fall, while
while those in cold climates should install early in the season).• You have a big lawn budget. Sod is sold by the piece or by the pallet, and costs vary widely depending on the type of grass. Plan to spend anywhere from 8 to 30 cents per square foot if you are installing it yourself.

moss grows extremely quickly and isn't very particular about soil, but it does do better in slightly shady areas. Usually this is sold in flats, like sod. Just cut it into small strips and place it around your pavers.
