Mow your Palmetto St. Augustine between 1.5 and 2.5 inches tall.
Apply pre-emergent herbicide. This will cut down on summer weeds.
If you have had insect problems in the past, treat with broad-spectrum insecticide. If you use a granular variety, water the lawn immediately after application to help get it into the soil. Make sure it has control for chinch bugs.
Don’t overwater. In the active growing season, Palmetto St. Augustine needs about one inch of water a week, from natural rainfall or irrigation. Too much water can cause fungus.
Apply fungicide (if needed). If you have had a fungus or disease in your Palmetto St. Augustine in the past or have quite a bit of shade in the yard, you should apply a systemic fungicide to prevent future outbreaks.
Fertilize your lawn with Lawnifi, the recommended liquid fertilizer.
