St. Augustine can turn yellow in the cold temperatures but will usually green up again as the weather warms. If you feed your lawn in the fall months it should remain greener during the winter so give that a try next fall. There's not much you can do to make it green up faster this spring - it needs warm temperatures in order to trigger growth. When it does start to green up you can feed it to encourage healthy new growth. Best wishes with your lawn.
