Weed and feed for Zoysia and St. Augustine - Knowledgebase Question

Winter Springs, FL
Question by seeeye2

I added several St. Augustine and Zoysia plugs to parts of my front lawn. What do I use to control weeds? I've always used Scotts Bonus S but didn't know whether that would also apply to Zoysia. I'm getting a lot of weeds particularly milkweeds, sedge grass and all kinds of strange weed I never saw before.

I would not use weed and feed products with the temperature so warm as they can harm some types of lawn grass. Plus, once the weeds have germinated the preemergence products in many weed and feed formulations will no longer control them.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
