Need Advice

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.

    • It’s amazing to me to look back already and realize 1.5 days around C season time  will be the story of my entire archery season this year.  Just too much other stuff going on AGAIN this spring to make an honest season out of it.   Full on fishing during any spare moments now.   Good luck out there!
    • Here are two more for you leech, but this time the holes were in some red pines up the Echo Trail.

    • Spring is exploding right into summer across Wisconsin. You would never know that just three weeks ago the Northwoods was covered with ice and snow. Memorial Day weekend kicks of the unofficial start to summer and many of the reservable campsite at state parks and forests are booked. The best remaining camping opportunities can be found in the non-reservable campsites in northern state forests. The lower Wisconsin River continues to run high, but there were signs of sandbars beginning to emerge in some areas as water slowly drops.Universe in the Park astonomy program begins this weekend with program at Blue Mound and Kohler-Andrae state parks.Photo credit: UW-Madison Dept. of AstronomyFields and forests have greened up, and regular rains have kept fire danger low to moderate across most of the state with just a few areas still in high fire danger. Through the spring fire season 639 wildfires burned 1,800 acres; 53 structures were destroyed and another 441 were threatened, but saved.Wisconsin's northern zone musky season opens this Saturday and spring fish assessments are showing they won't be disappointed with what they find, with many fish over 40 inches netted and released. .
