We just had our lawn replaces with Floratam - St.Augustine, and love it. The Villages is using Floratam - St. Augustine in the new areas. It’s so much nicer than Zoysia. St. Augustine has thick, wide shiny blades.

Our regular guy Tate from Choice Maintenence is coming tomorrow to help straighten us out. This happened to a friend of our over on St Andrews and it cost him about a thousand to Re-Sod the burnt out area.

Has this happened to other people in the Historic Area or anywhere in The Villages? I didn't call anyone to report it because I didn't want to waste their time and I really don't know who to report it to. What's done is done I would just like to alert others to save some unnecessary anxiety.

It really looked good to me before, this stinks. It was a Black Pick Up with a trailer in tow. Oh well, Onward.
Same thing happened to us a few years ago. My poor lawn looked terrible for a while. I sprayed with Miracle Grow (the lawn uses it all at once since it's a liquid) and watered it. Luckily it was a couple of cloudy days.
