  1. Thanks for checking, Patty. About 2 years ago, we had a subcommittee for grass issues as the St. Augustine was having trouble in many areas. The subcommittee found that a new Zoysia was an improvement and added it to the approved list. Tree growth was causing more shade and some areas already had Zoysia growing without the homeowners knowing it. All the other CCR grass comments still hold. The subcommittee simply added the Zoysia choice.

  2. Patty Buterbaugh says:

    You speak of laying Zoysia sod along the north side of Grallatorial Circle. I believe the CCRs call for the only grass allowed in Heron’s Forest to be St. Augustine. Am I wrong?
