So I moved into a home with St Augustine Grass with no knowledge on how to take care of it. It was lush and green when we moved in and 3-4 weeks later it’s going completely dead in large spots all over the lawn, total disaster, and with some lush spots still remaining. Our sprinklers were running twice a week and I’d water it once a week. I put some Scotts Southern feed on it. And I cut it a few times with an edger until I got a mower. I may have cut it too short in spots. The back yard we expected to die because we run the dog out there. But the front lawn which we never walk on is dying too. So anyway, the game plan is I’m going to try and start watering it every night to see if it helps, I’ve started using a mower which gives an even cut, and based on what I read I was going to go to Lowes to pick up some fertilizer to try tonight. Any ideas?
