    St. Augustine Grass

    By Milan on 04/19/2018

    I have been using SummerGuard on my St. Augustine Grass for many years. Three times a year. It does a great job keeping the grass green and getting rid of the cinch worms. I think the ones who complain do not know how to care for St. Augstine. Keep it short and pull the runners out. Takes a little work. But like I say, for many years and not a bit of problem with the St. Augustine. Of course St. Augustine goes to sleep in the winter months and does turn brown. I live in Calif.
