The Q&A Archives: Oxalis is all over lawn

Question: We are buying a house that has two big Pecan trees in the front yard. The yard has a little grass but it is mainly oxalis. How can i get rid of the oxalis and what type of grass should I plant?

Answer: Oxalis is so difficult to eradicate from an existing lawn that it is almost easier to completely redo the lawn and start all over. Warm season grasses will grow well in your region - Bermuda, St. Augustine, Centipede, etc. I would rototill the entire yard, remove the weeds, roots and other debris, then replant. A healthy turf will be thick and dense enough to crowd out future weeds. Best wishes with your lawn renovation project!
