A large area of my St. Augustine lawn (approximately 40 square feet died a couple of years ago. I tried to re-sod the area last year and it died yet again returning the area to dirt. It has been suggested that I need to treat for fungus in the soil and a local gardener had suggested Heritage. Information I've read on the product states it must be used as a preventative when diseases are emerging. Can it be used to cure fungus in the soil without grass present? Is there a better product or method to cure my soil?
Fungicides usually work best when applied as the disease is just beginning or as a preventative. We are not sure if Heritage will work for the treatment you described. We recommend calling the manufacturer as they are the experts on their product. You can reach Syngenta by calling 866-796-4368.
