I've never done it, just seen the results. It could be that results are different further north, I honestly don't know. Based on what I have seen here, I don't think I'd recommend it. Don't believe it makes sense to introduce what I consider to be non-desirable grasses into a pedigree St. Augustine lawn.
We've had really good success so far with a good IPM program and timely slow release fertilizer applications.
As far as painting the lawn is concerned... really?
Again, it's just my opinion; I'm not trying to jam it down anybodies throat.
