Good morning,I have a customer who has st. Augustine grass. The lawn was very thick with dead clippings (2″)or so. We removed it, leaving the vine-like roots exposed, all over the lawn. We verti-cut as the first step, then removed all build-up with a blowe and Vacuum. I read that it will look bad for 2 weeks and then between 3-5 weeks will become full, as the verti-cut promotes growth. My customer is panicing. Do you think the lawn will fill in? HelpThank you for your time.

You probably have an answer by now. My guess is that it will if they don’t over water and get fungi problems.
