(Disregard if you donít have St. Augustine.)
I do have St. Augustine (with a mix of Centipede in spots I think). This is my first time really trying to be serious with a yard, so Iím totally figuring this out as I go. The previous owners definitely did not stay on top of it (built 06/2016 and we are second owners as of 02/2020), so Iím just trying to get to a base at this point. Did not know about not dethatching St. Augustine, though!

Iíve got a few bald spots that I think will come together with a fertilizer. Was hoping to aerate today, but weíve been getting some off and on rain. I do have some big bald spots (one from a parked boat and two more from unchecked ant mansions). I think I may need some sod for those.

Bottom line, I have no idea what Iím doing!
