Dead grass and bare spots plus weeds
Hello I'm a newbie and I just bought a house and I have no idea how to take care of lawns. I have St. Augustine grass and my lawn has empty spots and dead grass. I also have lots of weeds. I'll post a picture. I see duck and goose poop in the bare spots. I have an irrigation system that is set to water for 10 minutes per zone using the city's conservation schedule of Thursday and Saturday before 10am and after 4pm. I have not mowed this lawn yet I don't even own a mower yet but I don't want dead grass and weeds. Any suggestions? Thanks.
