Well this is covers the family vacation this year. Yea the maintenance you have to do for real grass it a pain. I’m sure you have to mow and water every other day on your green.

Im close to ripping up my current green and replacing it with 419 or tiftuf. You really can't beat how much more drought tolerant and mow tolerant the true turf bermuda grasses are versus the seed

Go with the tiftuf! It greens up quicker, goes dormant later, is more dense and very drought tolerant. Its worth the extra price. I did my entire lawn 2 years ago. It likes to be cut low.....

Mine came from Georgia. My wife's family farms so we took the big rig down and hauled it back. Not sure who sales it around here other than supersod. They are just so expensive. Hauling it is where they rape you so if you have access to a flatbed to go and pick it up you will save a ton.

That's awesome man you can't go wrong with that. The trans is what's keeping me away from buying right now. I am ok with the prices but depending on the farm up to $500 delivery is insanity

How many pallets are you looking at? Sometimes they will piggyback a delivery with somebody else and cut you a break depending on the amount you order

I actually told you wrong my man. It was TifGrand that I got not tiftuf. Both are great but the TifGrand was a little darker

TifGrand is good stuff since it comes from the dwarf line.

I am really looking for any quantity at this point just to redo my golf area in the backyard.

At some point I would like to redo the whole thing but I would need 2 truckloads Cost wise that isn't horrible but I don't have irrigation so everything is still hose and tripod and there is no way I could do 20,000 sq ft that way at once.

Or, "we are under a tornado warning its headed our way" me, " baby, thats for northern Clarke Co. we good here" her, " no, my phone is going off" me, " I'm looking at the weather radar and you know I'm a weather man, lol"

I sure am shrinking after no gym for all these weeks. Crazy how fast it goes away.
Im a personal trainer I can send you some home workouts. I haven't shrunk one bit, been keeping up and slowly procuring weights as I find them. Though I'm sure if i tried to squat my usual weight right now It wouldn't be too easy.

Good news is once you gain muscle, if you lose it , wont take too long at all to gain it back.
