The green that these bahia lawns have in the early early spring here is much much darker green compared to the St. Augustine lawns that surround them.

How is weed control on them there a wider selection of herbicides that can be used on them than say S.A?

Believe it or not I use a low rate of Roundup to control broad leafs. But the real point is there are several good herbicides for Bahia. There are Ag labeled pesticides that work even better.
