St. Augustine is sensitive to many of the weed killers on the market but good control of clover can be achieved by spot spraying the leaf surface with Atrazine, an herbicide available at most garden centers. This product is safe to use on St. Augustine lawns, but should not be applied in summer when temperatures exceed 85 degrees since damage to the turf could occur. Or you can use a product such as Scotts Bonus S Southern Weed and Feed. Be sure to apply according to label directions. Best wishes with your turfgrass.
