    The following have been approved for lawns in West Meadows: St. Augustine, Bahia, Bermuda, and Zoysia...as well as, green vegetative ground cover such jasmine minima, kept under 6 inches tall. Whatever you choose to grow for your lawn, you are

    responsible for your choice and for maintaining it in a clean and attractive manner. You

    are responsible for keeping it trimmed, mowed, free of weeds, bugs, and dead spots. You will spend a considerable sum replacing your sod. It is highly recommended that your research your options so that you do not have to spend an additional considerable sum replacing a mistake. For more information on the allowed grasses see the UF/IFas web site: http://hillsborough_fyn.ifas.ufl.edu/FYN%20PdF%20Files/selecting%20turfgrass.pdf Comments of the various grasses are: st. augustine is often used in coastal areas because it is very salt-tolerant, but it requires more fertilizer and water. It also can be prone to pests, such as chinch bugs. Bahia requires the least amount of maintenance, but it is not salt-tolerant. Bahia also

    Sod Alternatives Approved for West Meadowsis prone to damage by mole crickets. Bermuda, which is used on golf-course greens, requires the most fertilizer, pesticides and water, plus careful mowing. It

    requires intensive maintenance. Zoysia grass exhibits a dark green color, and wide bladed leaf. It performs well in the hot, humid environment as is in the state of Florida. It performs well in the sandy, clay soil. It requires less maintenance than say Bermuda, and has a pretty good shade and cold tolerance. Zoysia grass is a turf grass used in Florida for both commercial and residential landscapes. Zoysia grass is adapted to shade, salt and traffic. It is slow-growing (less mowing!) and forms a very

    dense carpet. Jasmine minima is an evergreen groundcover that grows six inches tall and will spread up to ten feet. It can be grown in the sun or the shade and is easily maintained with an edger. It is a low maintenance, drought tolerant groundcover that is best used in shady situations were turf grass will not grow.

    Husband and Wife Team Board Certified in Plastic Surgery and

    Dermatology Open Clinic in Wesley Chapel Women have many choices when it comes to cosmetic surgery and skin care. Board-certified plastic surgeons and board-certified dermatologists are uniquely trained to provide these services. together, drs. Raj & aparna ambay provide tampas first center for coordinated care. Quality and safety should always be a priority, dr. Raj ambay, a board-certified plastic surgeon, recommends patients look past

    marketing hype by checking the board certification of their doctors with the Florida dept of Health and the american Board of Medical specialties. Your health and safety is too important to accept a

    compromise. dr. Raj ambay completed his general surgical residency at the prestigious Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn. Following his residency, he completed a plastic surgery residency at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, a cancer fellowship with the National Institutes of Health, and a second sub-specialty fellowship at Md anderson Cancer Center in Houston, where he specialized in microsurgery and tissue transplantation. Microsurgery and tissue transplantation allows me to perform the most advanced forms of breast cancer reconstruction. Knowing how to reconstruct a breast requires

    an artistic eye and comprehensive understanding of anatomy. that knowledge is the foundation for delivering superior results in cosmetic surgery. dr. ambay brought his medical

    expertise to the tampa area in 2010 when he relocated here with his wife, dr. aparna ambay and their daughter amani. dr. aparna ambay, a board certified dermatologist and Mohs surgeon, she completed her residency and the prestigious Mayo Clinic in Rochester Minnesota and the University of Wisconsin-Madison. at 360 dermatology, dr. aparna ambay not only performs non-invasive cosmetic procedures but also specializes in Mohs surgery, a precise tissue preserving surgical technique used to treat skin cancer. It is the only on-site, state certified Mohs facility in Wesley Chapel. the goal is to remove all of the skin cancer while preserving surrounding healthy tissue, said dr. ambay, who also said that a substantial portion of her patients choose to have their skin cancer defect reconstructed by dr. ambay, the plastic surgeon, rather than waiting weeks with an open wound. dr. Raj ambay is also a reservist,

    Lieutenant Colonel and an army veteran. He was deployed to Iraq in 2011 and spent four months stationed in a combat hospital supporting a special Forces unit. When dr. ambay entered
