Another thing to keep in mind..Just learned this the hard way. Here in Florida, you must treat the grass for fire ants, chinch bugs, and all sorts of stuff. Well, you have to read the directions on these granular treatments; something I don’t like doing.
When you put this stuff down on new sod, especially. I didn’t and burnt some of it up. You have to put it down when it is not too hot and then water it in right away. I have too much land to water it it manually and I have a lousy irrigation system with no pressure. So, I’ve wasted my money on some of the new sod I just put it. There is nothing worse than St Augustine grass! Nothing!
