Re: Does anyone here know anything about sod?
Fescue. The bane of my existence. Next week is the annual aerate/overseed drill at casa de 15. Sigh. Nothing I'd rather do on a September afternoon.
On the low spot - is there any chance that it's related to the water/sewer line? I've noticed that the ground above our water/sewer lines gets a smidge lower each year as things settle.
We also have some low spots around our back yard. Long timers in the neighborhood have told us that big trees used to be where the low spots are.
Or maybe is the pooling a function of how rainwater drains off the roof & away from a downspout? Perhaps if you redirected some rain water away from the area with one of those extensions for the end of a downspout, you'll mitigate the problem.
In short, maybe the low spot is a function of a couple of factors and not just shoddy work by the landscaper.
