My lawn of warm season grasses (St. Augustine on shady side and ? on sunny) has several thin spots. I know the soil is poor. Can I use the warm, sunny winter days that we often have in Arkansas to spread compost or other organic matter? Or should I wait until the grass greens up?

Lots of good info: https://www.uaex.edu/publicati...
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

I think compost is appropriate any time.
