St Augustine Grass Care

St. Augustine Grass Care In Cape Coral, FL

Caring For St. Augustine Grass Is No Picnic

St. Augustine grass is one of the most beautiful and comfortable turf grasses available. It forms a delightfully thick and springy carpet over your lawn, and it’s so soft and spongy you can even walk on it barefoot. Its dark green color and broad, flat leaves are also wonderful to look at. And it’s so thick that it can easily prevent bald spots in your lawn.

Unfortunately, all these fantastic qualities come at a cost. That cost is maintenance. St. Augustine grass is some of the highest-maintenance lawn grass you can get. It’s easy to grow, but keeping it healthy requires lots of time and effort. St. Augustine grass needs lots of water and fertilizer to keep it spongy and green. It also needs annual dethatching or aeration to ensure soil compaction does not destroy its roots. And it must be protected from a wide variety of diseases and lawn pests.

Common Problems That Can Affect St. Augustine Grass

Lawn pest control is vital for St. Augustine grass because it is susceptible to such a wide range of pests and diseases. Some of the most common infections that occur in St. Augustine grass are:

  • Chinch bugs
  • Grubs
  • Sod webworms
  • Brown patch fungus
  • Grey leaf spot fungus

Most of the time, if you have a problem with one of these invaders, you will see your grass start to die in yellow, orange, and brown patches. These patches will start out small and spread through your yard, eventually killing the whole thing.

Because the symptoms of each of these pests are all so similar, the best thing you can do if you start noticing little dead patches in your yard is to call a company that specializes in professional home pest control and lawn care right away. Only a trained set of eyes can determine the exact cause of these symptoms and figure out which treatment plan is right for your lawn. Remember, if you treat the wrong pest, you could wind up making the situation even worse. That’s why infestations in St. Augustine grass should be left to the pros.

Other common problems you could see with St. Augustine grass are over- or under-watering, soil compaction, and nutrition issues. If your grass is suffering from these problems, it may start to die more evenly than it would with infestations. Either way, if you notice your grass beginning to wilt, the best thing to do is to call the experts at Coastal Lawn and Pest to determine what’s going on with it.
