Hello everybody! First time posting on Garden. I live in South Florida and I got this weed in several places of my lawn and its spreading fast. I haven't figured out what type of weed this is,my lawn is ST Augustine grass and I use Scott's Turf Builder Bonus S to control weeds but so far I have no luck killing this stubborn weed. Also search on the internet but couldn't identify it. Does anybody had encounter same weed before? Thanks in advance.

It's green though? You can mow it?

I gave up on weed killing. They're all green, after all, and most of them grow more slowly than grass.

Turf builder won't work on killing grass, even weed grass. You're just feeding it.

You need to update your knowledge base! Turf Builder Bonus S is a weed and feed.

I know it's a weed and feed for grass, and the weed in the picture is a type of grass, so won't kill it.

Thanks for that link! Most of my "grass" is made up of that stuff. It creeps alright, and it roots at nodes. It invades my raised beds, I guess because those seed heads spread it around. What a pain to weed it; the roots go deep and if you leave even a little root, the dang thing comes right back. On the lawn, I just mow it. In the raised beds, I pull it out, of course.

around here, you clear an area--scrape off the brush, add a little cinder to fill holes, flatten it out some--then wait for stuff to grow, and mow it.

What kind of grass is that? I dunno, just whatever grew!
