    Looking for some recommendations. Southern Texas, mostly St Augustine. We have been using Manor/MSM for about a year for anytime we want to do a blanket herbicide for broadleaf weeds.

    I've spent a couple of weeks trying to figure out what this grassy weed is and I think it might be Bermuda grass. It grows sparsely in a couple of small patches 2-4 ft diameter where it has thinned the St Aug and I see a larger area in my neighbor's lawn right by the edge of mine. These patches...

    We have a St Augustine lawn that has a extremely thick thatch layer. About three weeks ago the customer had us come in a rake out all the dead stolons and matted dead portions. We also lowered the mower to about an inch or so. Afterwards we filled in the bare spots with "filtered" topsoil and...
