We have St. Augustine grass which has been stressed by the multiple hard freezes this winter followed by mild drought this spring. For the first time ever, our grass is really struggling. Recently I noticed brown, leopard type spots on the grass. Is this a fungus? If so, how do we treat it?

I wish I could diagnose the problem based upon your description, but it's nearly impossible to determine the exact problem without seeing it first hand. Instead of guessing I'm going to suggest you visit the following website from the University of Georgia. It contains photos of the most common problems with St. Augustine and you should be able to match the symptoms with your lawn.

Hope you find it helpful.
