update so far.
the DHG was kinda difficult to get seperated from the mat. the roots are attached and you have to pull it out. dhg comes off in nice plantable clumps though. took a minute to figure it out, but eventually, you get the hang of it. took about 3 hours to get it seperated and planted. hopefully, in a few months, i'll have a full lawn. i already trimmed 1.5 inches off the top of the dhg and its still pretty tall. i'll give the dhg a month or two, then give it a haircut.
