Lawn Q: perennial ryegrass?
Hi everybody! A lawn Q: this past summer, we had and treated a case of something called nigraspora stolon rot on our St. Augustine grass, which makes up our mixed turf lawn. A broad spectrum fungicide was used, followed by an organic fertilizer 2 weeks later. The 3 bald spots have some thin coverage now and the fungus seems to be gone. The soil has had issues for a while and my knee jerk reaction is to not bother the lawn/soil with any more chemicals. Just feed, water and trim as necessary and let the lawn recover naturally.
Having said that, what is everyone's opinion on perennial ryegrass? I've read that overseeding is good for the lawn because the ryegrass helps edge out some of the weeds. Would that be beneficial for our lawn after the issues we've dealt with? And does anyone have experience with ryegrass? Pros/cons?
