Is it too late to plant St. Augustine sod?
At this point, would it be better for me to wait until fall? Also, I was told by someone that I didn't need top soil. He just looked at the dirt and (he has a lot of experience with yards) and he said it looked good. But, I don't know ... it seems like everyone recommends top soil and compost. Do you have to do this to have the super thick yards? My yard has blackish soil but it's very flat (there are a few exposed tree roots) and it slightly slants in towards the house so that when it rains, dirt builds up underneath the front step. I keep hearing about compost helping drainage. Does it sound like I need that or should I just stick with his advice. He acts like he knows what he's talking about.
