I want to get my St aug in my yard to take over and it has in the back yard but the front is mixed with bermuda and some other stuf I can't identify. What would you do to get the St Aug to take over? Thanks ahead of time for the responses. :drinkup:

If you've got wild Bermuda mixed in with your St Augustine about all you can do is spray the Bermuda areas with roundup and then dig it up. After removing about 4 inches of soil you can then lay new St Augustine sod and fertilize and water it well until established.

The Bermuda was transplanted from the local golf course by the former home owner. The Bermuda is carpet like real tight and thick. Should I just choke out the St Aug with Bermuda instead? We're talking 2+ acres of front yard so I'm going to do whats possible without sodding.

SA can choke out Bermuda under the right conditions. Cater to the SA and it should do well.

Like wise the Bermuda.

If the Bermuda has the strong hold then I would go that route.

"it's not wild bermuda"

The only reason i wouldn't encourage hybrid bermuda over SA is if you are trying to grow it in the shade. I think bermuda win's as far as look's and strength. You can mow hybrid bermuda at 1 1/2" and it look's great, you need to mow SA at what? 4"

I don't hate because you're posting in the wrong area,
I hate because you're taking the easy way out by using a short cut,
that is also the likely reason why your lawn looks like ****.

Mowing height, fertilization and watering habits will determine which wins.

I wondered why herler posted this so i searched the original poster's name and found this. "Growth under trees" This person has not even mentioned these tree's. I think the OP is just looking for the answer HE want's, not a answer that's based in reality. The OP already has the answer, he's just wasting time. No grass is going to grow under tree's, groundcover's are the answer.

Thanks for the professional advice Herler. Loosen up man, really? You don't know shi#$ about me. I just bought the house four months ago and I'm not a website forum nerd.

Thanks everyone else, your advice is much appreciated. I have enough information to execute a plan from everyone's responses so we can stop it here so I don't get anymore tuff guys life Herler replying, I can't stomach people like him, you know the kind that is about as sharp as wet sack of mice, Herl that shi$&, Thanks, Seth

Forgot about Agro the cyber stalker, you pretty dumb too, one of the large oaks was hit by lighting OCT 16 to be exact and I removed it. Plus cement trucks have rutted the yard where the bare dirt is under the trees which I filled in with topsoil but anyway, I'm off this site, don't have time to bicker with lil punks like you and Herler.
