Help: St Augustine, North Florida

189 Views 5 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  FLwater
I resoded this area last year and after being away for a month my lawn looks like this.

It is watered 3x a week in the morning and I fertilized it two months ago. The rest of the lawn looks healthy.

Does anyone have any thoughts on what it could be?

Thank you for any help.

We are seeing mole crickets everywhere and that looks similar. Ours is in Bermuda
Mole cricket activity should be sort of obvious with little mounds of dirt. Hard to tell but if the area has any rust/orange around the edges it could be chinch bugs, but I would say it’s a bit early for you on either of those. Do the leaves look chewed?
Did the automatic irrigation fail? Power failure? lightning strike?
Is the SA green in the shade?
Yeah, irrigation is working. The SA in the shade is lush green, but the spread is heading that way and I am freaking out.
