    What's on the market that will kill dandilions in St. Augustine? Everything I see that Kills dandilions warns against usage on St. Augustine.

    Dependent upon the label restrictions, Lesco 3-Way. Pretty much anything that has 2,4-D in it.

    You will no longer find Speedzone for St. Augustine being sold. We and many other companies here in Florida that used it according to the label had serious problems with it burning the top off of the St. Augustine. The company pulled all of it in the fall to supposedly relabel it lowering the max temp. from 90 to 85 and also remove Floratam from the label. It still hasn't come back out yet.

    Hi. I'm new here and came here for the same exact problem. Where can i buy atrazine from and is it a brand name or a chemical? Lastly, is there anything else that will work on St. Augustine grass for dandelions? How about against clovers as well? I think i've got more weeds than st. augustine! :mad:
