Fertilized...now I killed my St. Augustine grass...???

Like a dummy, I found some year-old spray fertilizer for the grass and applied it very liberally, thinking that more is better.

A few days later, the grass turns yellow and dry.

I assumed I killed it and it's not coming back, correct?

Thank you for your responses.

It needs a lot of water right after a heavy application of fertilizer. If it does come back, and it may, it will come back like gangbusters, make sure the lawn mower is ready to go.

Wait 2 or 3 weeks. If all you see is weed growth, you'll know for sure.
