    I live in a new neighborhood and the builder put in a bad load of grass sod in my yard that has a ton of bermuda. I have heard that if you let St Augustine grow pretty high it will choke out the bermuda. My problem is it is not working. The bermuda (which I think is not a lawn variety) grows just as high if not higher and has not decreased at all. Right now too it is producing what I assume is a flower (it looks like a crow's foot). Is there anything else i can try, or do i need to look into resodding.

    I've got some bermuda in some centipede sod I bought. I'm using a herbicide product called Vantage which says it will kill bermuda and bahia but is safe for Centipede. Usually, what is safe for centipede is also safe for St Augustine but you might want to check the lable. Got it at Home Depot or Lowes.
