|Late fall fertilization of St. Augustine grass helps maintain color and density of the lawn into the winter and promotes early recovery of the grass in the spring. Since you missed the late feeding, you need only to feed when it starts to green up this spring. Use one pound of nitrogen per 1000 feet of turf every 60 days from early spring through late fall. St. Augustine responds nicely to nitrogen and your lawn should return to its glorious green color and remain green most of the year once it's been fed.
