Weed Control

EfanlewisSeptember 30, 2012

I tried to replace my curb side lawn with some water tolerant plants but another kind of weed just appeared before and spread faster than my intended plant takes roots. I also have this weed on my St. Augustine grass lawn . I don't know what the watrr tolerant plant called and so is the weed. Is there a weed control spray that I can use without killing the plant and St. Ausgutines? And how do I upload more than two pictures?

That is spotted spurge. Having a lot of bare space allows weed seeds to come in and sprout. You could mulch the area with a finely chopped mulch to minimize weed sprouts.

You can post another picture in a follow up on this message.

I agree with Esh Ga. Pull the weeds that have grown among your desirable plants and then mulch with shredded leaves or other fine textured mulch to prevent other seeds from sprouting.
