I had St. Augustine grass laid about a year and half ago. I live in Houston, Texas and I have been having trouble getting it to grow. I have alot of patches in my grass and dead spots. It also has dead spots. It is very hot here this year. Please help me! I am un sure how long to water it and when?

My suggestion is:
1. Rake and remove dead St Augustine blades2. Water not more than 2 x week with 3/4 to 1″ of water (put out pans to measure how long to water each area). 3. Consider (after raking) putting down some 16-8-x (or similar) fertilizer.
Over watering is bad and may result in fungus or disease.
