new Bermuda seed. how to deal with weeds.
I recently planted half my yard with Bermuda seed. The front half was sodded by the builder and I'm adhering to the Bermuda bible and starting to get great results with that. The seeded area has been a struggle though.
One portion of the seeded area was planted about six weeks ago. Portions are doing quite well and are already thickening up nicely with relatively few weeds. Some areas are almost entirely weeds of about a million varieties. My question is whether is should start treating for weeds this year or just let it do its thing and start treating with a fall preemergent and a spring prenergent and wait till next summer to hit it with the herbicides. I don't want to hurt the young grass but if it can stand up to it I'd like to hit it with something to start to get on top of these weeds.
If I can treat it safely what should I use? I used image nutsedge killer on my sod because it started off quite weedy and it wiped out every dang weed I had. It stunted the grass a little but not bad. I'd use it again if I could.
