Need Advice

2 posts in this topic

Call me Jo Jo the I-d-iot Circus boy or whatever you want but I did a no no. I have or HAD St.Augustine in my front yard. About 2 months ago I put down some Scotts (I always use Scotts)to get ride of any pre-emergent weeds. I do know that some fertilizers are not to be applied on St.Augustine lawns....I read the directions and all the fine print on the bag at Home Depot....I didn't see a thing on there about not applying to St. Augustine grass....UNTIL....I had applied it to my front yard. I was so [PoorWordUsage]. It's my fault....somehow I missed it. I "thought" it was the same stuff I always use...obviously not. front yard is d-e-a-d. There are small patches that are starting to grow back...I know eventually it will probably come back......right? Will lots of water help it come back? Any advice?

Ouch! We don't have much St Augustine grass up here being that it don't do well in our cold winters so my guess would be maybe aerate (St. Augustine grass likes to be aerated in the spring), apply some Iron and water it in good. Maybe do a small area first to watch and see if it starts coming back then tackle the whole lawn if it is working.

If you do aerate, that would be a great time to broadcast some extra seed out on the lawn. Then simply drag it in.

Wish i could be more help. Good luck.

    • Kidneys and black X2,, This isn't a down south chili cook off, we need substance in our chili up here lol. 
    •   Still looks like the White House is trying to squash the reports.     
    • Hahahah! Right? I didn't even get to cut with yours dude. I'll end up buying the fuel or a dewalt DCD 996, whatever I find a good deal on. A 9ah battery on that Kdrill? Can you imagine??     
    •   According to December Spicer this is now a dictatorship. February Spicer seems to disagree.   Also the White House threw them out in spite of confirming the truth of the reports.
    • Special treatment? Like a seat at the table?   If Obama didn't give FN a seat, we all know you'd be first to wet yourself.  OK, third to wet yourself.  Uncle Bill would be second and leech first since he already wets himself routinely.
