Bermuda & St. Augustine Grass

I have Bermuda that is encroaching into my yard of established St. Augustine. Does anyone now how I can get rid of the Bermuda without killing the St. Augustine?

Sorry i dont have a remedy, only sympathy. Years ago i had a beautiful fescue lawn that was weed free. Only on in the summer common bermuda (that's what we call it here in the south) kept creeping in. Finally i said if i can't beat it i will join it! Now I have a beautiful bermuda lawn that is very drought tolerant, which tou need to have here in the hot south. I've been tho Houston and I know it is hotter and more humid. Good luck on an answer.

Living with Bermuda

I wouldn't mind a thinner blade grass vs. St Augustine, but I need something that is shade tolerant and wouldn't be invasive to my neighbor's lawn.
I've yet to find any info on Prograss to see if it would be a viable solution.
