I'm getting my front yard sodded with St. Augustine on Friday. I have killed off all the bermuda and grass burrs. They are going to cut the old dead grass out and then lay the St. Aug. I am not expecting them to do any soil amendments before laying the St. Aug.

What can I run out and purchase that they can easily put out before they lay the grass? I don't want to spend too much on this. Meaning, I'm not going to buy as many bags of humate that would be needed to cover this area.

Here are some ideas:
- spray with liquid molasses
- spread compost as thick as you can afford up to 1"
- green sand and lava sand mixture
Do as much of the above as possible/affordable.
Wells Bros farm store in Plano sells bags of blended compost, green and lava sand.

I can probably do the liq. molassas and green and lava sand.

What proportions on the green and lava?

For the greensand and lava go up to 40 pounds per 1,000 square feet - again, what you can afford.
