I think the average is 115 degrees. i thought sod was more than I was quoted, so for $350 I started considering just laying sod instead of dealing with mud. someone told me it's too hot for sod and it probably won't make it unless we use tons of water. i would've thought i'd have to water seed more than sod, but I guess I can see what they're saying, roots go deeper and it's more to cover. has anyone had experience trying to root sod or grow seed in this kind of heat? the next question, is which kind of bermuda? A garden guy said to try buffalo grass for less mowing and watering, but A&P nursery said no way in full sun in AZ. thx!
