The Q&A Archives: St. Augustine

Question: Hi!
Our house is 2 years old and the St. Augustine sod hasn't ever taken a strong hold. I have a terrible weed problem. How long do I weed & feed before trying to put in plugs?

Answer: If you plan to use a weed and feed product, do it now before the weather gets warm. Otherwise it may burn the St. augustine. The best weed control is a dense, healthy turf. Do all you can to develop a good, dense turf (regular mowing, deep infrequent watering and moderate fertilizing) and over a year or two you will eliminate the vast majority of weeds in your turf. Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
