Kill Weeds Without Hurting Your Southern Grass

February 12, 2015

The first line of defense against weeds taking over your lawn is to make your lawn denser and thicker by feeding regularly during the year.  Three to five feedings a year really helps your grass crowd out young weeds before they get a chance to get a toehold.  (Note:  Centipede Grass should only be fed two or three times a year.)  The second defense is to mow your grass at one of the higher settings on your mower.

This well fed healthy St. Augustinegrass helps to keep weeds from gaining a toehold.
