I was not denying there is frost damage. Did not mean to come off as all knowing or questioning your experience. That I apologize for. I was just stating that grass has not started really greening down this way because soil temps are not in the 70s yet. We have some damage and shrub damage also

Just a suggestion for a plan B that might make you some green. We went through this several years ago with frost doing some heavy SA damage. Network with a good sod guy in your area. If needed sub out the sod work for 10% on top for making a few phone calls and overseeing the install. Bill it to customer through your service.

Got several yards with damage in Destin and Niceville. Seen a lot of Patch too and weeds. Not much Poa though I think our Pre-M worked on it since we put it out a month earlier last fall. Going to be a long season of customer complaints.

I'm out of town right now but when I get back I'll share some pics of my centipede lawn. The left side of the driveway is fully green and the right is still brown in areas but starting to green up. I've done the same fert/chemical treatments to both sides. Drainage is good everywhere and irrigation is the same. We're in the mid 70's for the highs but got down in the low 40's at night this past week.

Weird, some centipede lawns look fully out of dormancy and nice, others are patchy and bare with a few stolons struggling for life. I think I may have helped kill a section of one of my lawns but I don't think it was due to over ap, just sensitive grass I guess. How many cultivars of Centipede are there? I know the tiffblair is supposed to be superior.

What causes centipede stolons to grow on top of the soil? I've always thought it was from scalping or shallow watering.

I posted about St Augustine winter kill in the Texas forum asking about how others SA was doing. In my town in North Texas the SA is about 90% dormant so I started looking at people's lawns, treated and untreated. I am finding way more dead Stolons than live ones. Probably about 10 to 1. I think the heavy sleet storm we had that stayed on the ground for over a week in the shady areas and 5 or 6 days in the sunny areas combined with days that started out at 11 degrees and never made it much above freezing for a couple of days kicked the SA's butt
