Believe it or not, proper mowing and watering are a part of the weed control process! Mowing your warm season grass lawn (Bermuda, zoysia, St. Augustine) frequently during the growing season will encourage the grass to grow sideways and spread, helping it to become thick and lush and thus more impervious to weeds. Watering will keep your lawn healthy so it can stay thick and lush. If you mow infrequently, your lawn will thin out and weeds will be allowed to go to seed.

A pre emergent applied in February or March, before weeds sprout is one way to keep them at bay; a post emergent labeled safe for Bermuda turf will take care of the existing weeds. Best wishes with your lawn!
