Weed and Feed formulated for St. Augustine is not safe to use in your flower beds or around shrubs. If dollar weed is invading your planting beds, the best way to get rid of it is to hand pull it, roots and all. The problem is that it grows in large patches and it replaces itself quickly so that few find pulling it up a reasonable solution. There are, however, weed-killing chemicals. Try WipeOut by GreenLight which will kill the weeds but not their seeds so multiple applications will be needed.
