    Ok so our back yard does not come with grass, apparently that is our responsibility. I came up with about 2500 sq feet for the backyard, maybe a little more depending on the side yard and where the fence ends. A local nursery advertised a pallet of st Augustine for $130 and that's 450 sqft of coverage, so I'll need like 7. Anyone have any idea how much a pallet on this stuff weighs??

    your truck can handle pallet, but that would be it. If you need that many pallets, you can try and negotiate free delivery from the nursery. Not a bad thing as you can direct them to spread the pallets around the backyard. Get plenty of help so you can get it off the pallets and on the ground ASAP.

    I don't think they will be able to get a full pallet through the fence and I don't want them running over sprinkler heads with a fork lift...

    When we did the back yard last year, they laid down 4/8 sheets to not run over the sprinkler system.

    Couple things to look at.

    How tall are the sprinkler heads, they need to come out of the ground about 4-6 inches to clear the sod and grass.

    Thats another thing you cant just put sod down on dirt or you risk killing it all. You will need to put down a mixture of dirt. I cant recall the mixture name but it has several things mixed and this allows the grass to bond and grow. Also you will need to use a TON TON of water every day all summer or the grass will die in the Texas heat.

    Our water bill was 100 a month higher then normal the first 3 months we had grass. We watered it at 4 am for 15 minutes, then again at 10pm for 15 minutes. The goal is it has to stay damp at the roots all the time.

    Depending on when your house is done it might be best to wait till Feb 14 to plant the back yard. We had our house done in June, but did the back yard in March for that same reason.

    Also with Sod if you cant get them to deliver, then you should rent a flat bed style trailer, it can handle more pallets. Plus its lower to the ground for unloading, and its a lot easier on your truck to Pull 2K lbs then carry it in the bed.

    Take the fence down so they can. You will kill yourself carrying that much sod by hand from the curb to the back yard. Plus the more you handle it, the harder it is to work with as it starts to pull apart, etc. Or, you can run down to the QT with a couple hundred in your pocket and bring back some day laborers.
