The typical problems with your lawn in this area, with St. Augustine, are chinch bugs. I would recommend putting out a granular fertilizer because it is easier and it lasts longer. It has some residual affect to it. If you don't want to mess with the spreader, you can always spray it, but there are products out on the market that are the better for chinch bugs. I would say diazinon is probably one of the most common ones. That is available in granular or liquid form. You have diazinon and Duraspan. Those are probably the most common ones. The downfall to using a pesticide is that the pesticides really don't target one pest, so you are killing pretty much all the bugs in your lawn, even if you have beneficial ones like earthworms.
