St. Augustine question (cable company butchers)
I am new to lawn care. DH and I just moved to TX and are renting a house with BEAUTIFUL 6 month old St. Aug sod (not sure what variety). The owner is adamant that the lawn stay in good shape. We have in-ground sprinklers, so maintenance should not be a problem. I have read all about organic fertilizers, and will be starting a regimen suggested here in the spring.
My question (or, rather, questions): the cable company has to dig through the backyard to bury a cable line. I have been assured that they are only lifting then replacing 4" of grass and dirt to do this, and that the grass should be fine. What can I do to make sure I don't have a path of dead grass in the spring?
Add on question: how often should I be watering through the winter? I can't find an answer to that...
