Getting rid of St. Augustine grass

Asked October 3, 2017, 1:51 PM EDT

Do you have materials on getting rid of St. Augustine grass? My front lawn is basically that, and it is difficult to mow, and to edge. And I don't want it to move into my back lawn or my neighbors.

Florida State University very likely will have better information concerning St. Augustine grass however, a non-seletive herbicide such as glyphosate should be quite effective. Make sure to mix according to the label or for a smaller area, purchase a ready to use spray that comes pre-mixed.
