Weeds in Your Florida Lawn

In this video, Dr. Laurie Trenholm talks with Dr. Phil Busey about ways to combat weeds in the lawn. Dr. Busey is is an Emeritus Associate Professor in Turfgrass Science at the Fort Lauderdale Research & Education Center.

The best way to battle weeds is to keep your lawn healthy. Following suggested maintenance steps such as mowing to the right height, as well as prudent irrigation and fertilizing, will create a healthy lawn where there's little room for weeds. But sometimes, even the healthiest lawn is invaded, and then chemical control is required. Always read and follow the product label whenever you use herbicides.
