    Ask the sales people at the home improvement/garden supply store to show you types that are suited for your property. Bring a few photos to show placement of trees, etc. so they can steer you in the right direction.

    Your local nursery can best advise you, they should carry different types of bulk grass seed and will assist you with your selection.

    St. Augustine is a great grass, but you have to purchase sod. To plant, put down sand or potting soil in the area where you want to put the grass. Then place sod on top and tamp down lightly. You must keep it watered everyday until it takes hold. Texas is very hot, so really the best time to plant sod is fall or spring.

    Hello-for the best local professional advice

    I would highly suggest contacting your cooperative extension. These offices are manned by volunteer master gardeners on site there waiting to answer the communities questions that know your local situation quite well.


    Master gardeners are required to volunteer back designated hours ( plus continuing education) each year to maintain MG certification -this community outreach and education is their goal.
