I see most herbicides say do not use if you have a specific type St. Augustine. I do not know what type I have, it came with the house. I'd like to put down a broadleaf herbicide to take out crabgrass, wild strawberry, etc., but do not want to kill clover as it is beneficial to breaking up soil, setting nitrogen, and a good lure for honey bees. What is my solution?

The best approach is to dig out a representative sample of your lawn and take it to your cooperative extension office for identification. Helpful folks there can not only identify your turfgrass but offer suggestions for weed control. Here's where to take the sample:
Spalding County Extension
232 East Broad Street
(corner of 5th Street and Broad Street)
Griffin, GA 30223
