The Q&A Archives: weed control

Question: I have both bermuda & st augustine grass. I used ortho weed killer (for southern lawn), but my grass is turning yellowish or brownish. please let me know if there is anything I can use for this.

Answer: Elizabeth,

I am sorry for this delayed reply to your gardening question. The spring rush has brought a deluge of questions and we are working hard to catch up!

What you need to do now is to maintain even moisture in the soil. Don't fertilize any more for the next few months. This will give the grass time to recover as best it can. Avoid weed killers for a while. This fall and next spring apply a fertilizer only at a moderate rate and water it in well after application.

Thanks for the question. Best wishes for a wonderful gardening season. Please stop in again soon!
