    I live in Washougal, WA and have a side yard that is approximately 600 sf of level ground that currently has a thin layer of wood chips installed. The area should receive approximately 5 to 6 hours of sun every day and is partially shaded. Can you recommend a good grass for this area and give me a price for 600 sf of sod? Is there a charge for delivery or can I pick up in your location? I have a Hyundai Santa Fe SUV. How soon can I get the sod and do you accept Master Card?
