St. Augustine Grass, First Time Home Owner, Please Help :'-(

9 years ago

Hi All,

I live on the east coast of Florida in St. Augustine. First time home buyer and this is my first time taking care of a lawn. I've been working very hard lately trying to get my lawn back to life but I haven't had much luck.

I've had the lawn fertilized twice already, aerated, and I've been watering twice a week for 15 minutes per zone. Not to mention we just got 11 inches of rain a few weeks ago.

The sod looked great when it was put down in the winter, but never recovered from it. I have exposed roots and heavy layers of thatch sporadically around my yard which i've tried to rake up.

Any suggestions on how to help fix these exposed and bare areas would be appreciated!
