Also, this was before the real heat actually hit, so the weeds are still green. Trust me, they're in there, lol. We had at least 4 different types of grass (plus weeds) to begin with. I was just so excited to get rid of everything and start over.
Then we tilled everything up, added topsoil and fertilizer and lime, to end up with this last week:
So, the grass was delivered on Tuesday afternoon, after having been cut and loaded on the truck just earlier that morning. We started putting the sod down soon after it arrived and it was an exciting transformation.
We ordered 9 pallets of Emerald Zoysia, which works out to 4000 sqft of grass. We laid sod until 9pm on Tuesday night and started at 8am again on Wednesday. We finally finished around 12:30 on Wednesday. Although it was a ton of work, it looks really great and we saved a ton of money putting it down ourselves.

Here are some more pictures of the grass. There are a couple brown areas where the sod was cut and from sitting in the sun, but I know that it will all green up and grow together after it gets established.
