I saw a similar message to this one from the 98 archives. My St Augustine
is dying in a ring that coincides exactly with the dripline of my live oak
trees. The trees have been there about 5 years. The grass is fine
everywhere else. It seems to be coming back this spring, but we've had a
lot of rain. I'm in zone 8-College Station, TX.

1. Could this be from tannic acid in the live oaks?

2. Can it be corrected some how?
