Step 1: Enjoy this beautiful weather!
Step 2: Turf Preparation?
Once green growth begins to emerge from the turf, rake up the dead grass throughout your lawn. This will allow the new growth to surface while also providing for better nutrient penetration and water infiltration. Also, wake up your turf by mowing once again, but it is important to do so at the correct height and frequency. It is best to mow St. Augustine grass at a height of four inches to prevent scalping, improve root depth and lessen environmental stress such as drought and insect pressure. In addition, fertilization is necessary to green up and strengthen your turf. Fertilize your lawn using a 4-1-2 ratio fertilizer. This will keep the nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium balanced for both soil storage and plant uptake requirements.
