St. Augustine turf areas

As you drive throughout the community, you may notice some off color turf in our St. Augustine common areas. The turf was treated with a herbicide late last week to remove and control the Nut Sedge weeds that were beginning to infest the area. due to the high rainfall over the past several weeks (12 inches in September), the Nut Sedge has become prolific. The herbicide is extremely successful in controlling the weed, however, it does cause a mild, temporary discoloration to the existing turf grass. In fact, much of the discoloration is the weeds turning brown and dying. This discoloration and dead weeds will be eliminated through mowing and irrigation and will disappear within 7 to 12 days providing a healthy, weed free turf grass.
