My backyard is just sand right now. I would like to lay out St. Augustine grass sod but I don't know if it will grow where I live. I live in the souther California desert area. More specifically the Coachella Valley.

St. Augustine will grow in Coachella Valley - it grows everywhere in Palm Springs and their weather is similar to yours. An alternative would be Bermuda grass. Best wishes with your new turf.
