New house and lawn, what should I use?
Hi all, I'm in the process of building a new house and will be doing the yard and landscaping again myself as I have done on my current house. I'm looking for advice on what type of grass will work best for the yard. The yard area has areas of shade and some areas of full sun so I need something that will handle a variety of sun exposure. The soil is a nice loam, old farm country. It's toward the sandy side, not much clay at all in it. I haven't tested it yet so I am not sure on that one. Any ideas on what would work well? I'm in South Carolina, so there is plenty of warm and sunshine. I'm hoping to move in mid June. So I'm even wondering if I should just fertilize and amend the soil as needed this year and throw out some annual rye when it gets to fall and plant next spring. Thoughts?
