Hi All My Folks moved into a new home here in Central FL a few months back and did all the usual stuff to get the the lawn to become healthier ie set the sprinklers, weed and feed and regularly mow it. But the lawn is just looking terrible! What do you guys think what would your plan of attack be?? Pics are below so you can get a good idea of the problem! Ive been reading up on dethatching and it seems theres a few conflicting stories on it being bad or not im no expert in this field but id say by the looks of the lawn it could do with something to get rid of all the straw/thatch embedded within most of the grass. Now if this is the route to go would one of the less expensive dethatchers with the metal tines that attache to the back of the tractors work or are the ones that cut into the ground like edgers the only ones to use on St Augustine?
