You can hand pull the weeds, or you can use a weed control product. Ortho? Weed-B-Gon Weed Killer for St. Augustine Lawns, or Scotts? Bonus S Weed and Feed for Southern Lawns are safe for St. Augustine. Since you've recently fed your lawn, you can wait until late June to use the weed and feed, or you can use the straight Weed B Gone now and forego the feeding. Check the package label for application rates and times so you don't hurt your new lawn. Best wishes with your turf!
