My St. Augustine lawn is uneven in spots. What kind of soil or sand do I put in the holes to make it more even and how do I do this? Thank you.

It can be time consuming, but it's relatively easy to fill in those low spots. Use sand or top soil and spread it over the low areas, adding only about an inch at a time and allowing the grass to grow up through it. Once it does, you can add another inch of topsoil or sand. Depending upon how low the spots are, you may only need to do this two or three times, being sure to allow the grass to grow up over the fill before spreading more topsoil. Eventually the lawn will be even and you'll have no low spots. Best wishes with your lawn!
