    The lawn I’m working on is in South East La. It was loaded with broad leaf weeds. I used Ortho Weed B G on it about 2 weeks ago. It killed the weeds but know the grass is really thin. The lawn is centipede. Is there something I can do to help the lawn now or re-seed it in the spring? Any information you can give? Thanks Duke

    Fertilize to promote growth and sprig in some more centipede now before its too late. I dont think centipede can be bought in seed form, but what do I know:dizzy:

    i cant remember whats in Weed-B-Gone besides 2,4-D. 2,4-d can cause minor damage to centipede.

    It " WBG " will hurt centipede if it's put on to strong. Thanks for the reply. Duke

    Do not put WBG on too strong. it will hurt the centipede grass. Good luck
