The Q&A Archives: Common Bermuda Grass in Floratam

Question: How do I get rid of Common (Wild) Bermuda grass in my St. Agustine Floratam Lawn? Mower is set at 3.5 inches and I use Atrazine three times a year in the fertilizer.

Answer: Jay,
There is not a way to kill Bermuda in St. Augustine without killing ing the St. Augustine. Your best option is to either live with the mix or if the Bermuda is just sporatic to spot treat with a dabber type applicator any bermuda you see and accepting some loss of St. Augustine and then give the St. Augustine time to refill the dead spot. The Atrazine won't work for this.
