New house new lawn!

Post by Automoglow » November 1st, 2019, 10:04 am

first I want to start off by saying my name is Eric and I’m from Orlando Florida.

I was just getting into taking care of my grass at my old house using the Scotts app.

I just built a house about a year ago and they laid St. Augustine grass. I never cared for this grass before, but heard it was great if well taken care of. I started off using just Milogranite. And it seems to be working well, but Some spots aren’t as green and have thatch. Anyone help what could be causing this? I want it all nice and deep green.

Welcome to ATY !!!! You chose the quiet time of the year to join - most of the Northerners are putting away the mowers and digging out the snowblowers.

A couple of comments and questions to get your discussion going:

(1) It's a really good idea to put the lawn size and experience level onto your profile. It makes a difference in how we answer your questions, and whether we question your questions (or not).

(2) Speaking of questioning your questions, what is it that makes you think you have thatch? Have you taken a core out and determined how thick the thatch layer is? (Please post it if you did).

Thanks I just updated my profile. I started getting into grass at my old house. Started using the Scotts app at first to get an idea. Love doing yard work! Now that I have a new yard to take care of I really want to get into it.

Regarding the thatch I just assumed that’s what it may be.
