Is there any way to get rid of Bermuda Grass growing in St. Augustine without just spraying round up on the areas with the Bermuda and then re-sodding. The Bermuda is quickly spreading through the yard and I don't want to wait much longer before I take some kind of action.

BERMUDA IN ST. AUGY

DO YOU KNOW THAT BERMUDA REPRODUCES SEED, STOLON AND RHIZOME. THATS TWO MODES OF ROOT PRODUCTION.... ROOTS HAVE BEEN SHOWN TO GROO UP TO 36" DEEP. BERMUDA IN ST. AUG . IS A COMMON PROBLEM IN WEEK AREAS OF LAWN. POOR GRASS GROWTH, LACK OF WATER OR SOME SORT OF SOIL PROBLEM. MOWING TOOO SHORT LINE TRIMMER DAMAGE ALL EQUAL WEAK ST.AUG GRASS.. BERMUDA GRASS WILL THRIVE WERE YOUR ST. AUG WONT'.. THEN THERS' THE NEIGHBOR , HOW MUCH INFLUENCE DOES YOUR NEIGHBORS' LAWN HAVE ON YOUR LAWN. I WILL RECCOMEND
R R AND R. THATS ROUD-UP, REMOVE AND REPLACE. KILL IT REMOVE AND SOD IT. THIS MAY WORK FOR ABOUT 2 TO 5 YEARS DEPENDING ON THAT GRASS AREAS HEALTH.

Proper care is all you need.

1. Water deeply and infrequently.
2. Mow at the highest setting on your mower.

Irrigated St Augustine in full sun will choke out all other grasses. If you let the St Aug dry out the bermuda will take over quickly.

I have the exact same problem...Bermuda comes up anywhere the St. A gets stressed. And every year there is more and more of it. I always use Scott's Bonus S weed and feed and have been told that heavier applications of this will kill the Bermuda, but no luck. Any other ideas besides what has already been posted?

Let the bermuda take over. How's that for a suggestion?

I've never seen StAug beat out bermuda. Bermuda wins every time. I had a StAug lawn in full sun and berumda took it over after only a few years.
