What kind of grass/how should I do it?
I just bought my first house and I have a lawn full of dirt! My neighbors say that once upon a time there was beautiful grass throughout my yard. There is a lot of shade in the front and back.
I would like to put some grass down but I'm not sure which to use and how to go about doing it. I've been told St Augustine would be good? I don't want to spent a ton of money. I see on craigslist a pallet of St Augustine goes for $110.
What kind of grass should I get? Is it as simple as throwing it down or do I need to till?
When it rains the ground is muddy if that helps know more about the soil. I'm in Round Rock Texas.
Any advice would be much appreciated!
