We just bought a house that had an unfinished backyard. We took part of our grass from the finished front yard to the coop and the employees there were able to look at the grass, tell us what kind we had and what we could plant in the backyard that would look the same but grow well in the part of the yard that faced north. Not to mention the prices here are terrific even if you are not a member. It was such a nice change from the big home improvement stores where it is very difficult to get this kind of one-on-one advice. Their advice was right on. Its been a few months and our lawn looks great!
