Help with St, Augustine grass please?
Ok....here's the deal...by August & September I will have a beautiful thick lawn, but it doesn't start out that way. Right now, about 75% of the lawn is chick-weed with a lot of Dollar weed scattered about. I guess my question is ......when the chick week and Dollar weed start appearing and BEFORE the St. Augustine starts greening up, can I use something like Round-up to kill it? I am thinking that it wont affect the lawn as long as it's dormant. Eventually the St. Augustine will choke out the rest of the mess, but it is taking a little longer each year. I live in southeast Virginia. Thoughts, comments, advice?? Thank you!
