The Q&A Archives: Lost most of floratam lawn during last winter frost

Question: Lost most floratam lawn
during last winter from
frost. I fertilize to
make what little grass
I had left to grow but
now I have nothing but
weeds in all the areas
where the grass died which is about 80%. What
do I do to get my floratam grass back. I
have 33,000 sq.ft. of
lawn area.

Answer: Floratam will eventually creep into the bare areas and fill them in, but it sounds like it could take years! Seed is not available for Floratam so you'll want to resod or at least install new plugs or sprigs to get your lawn back. Wish I had better news for you!
