I was wondering if any one in South Florida has had good results using a pre-emergent herbicide in their St. Augustine lawn....

Has any one?

Thanks in advance

I skipped using Lesco PEM last year and I noticed a significant increase in the crabgrass population. I am going to use it again this Feb and again in May. I am in Central Florida with a mostly Floratam SA lawn.

I also seen an increase in crab grass & chich weed when I didn't use PEH. I would use it before weeds start growing in the spring or once you have your weed problem under control. The lawns you see with very little weeds, you can bet they or the company they have treating the lawn is using PEH as part of the lawn care program.

Pre-emergent is one of the best approaches as you prevent the weed. A little prevention goes a long, long way.
