St. Augustinegrass & Specticle FLO

St. Augustinegrass is a common turf type in Florida, Texas, and other areas in the Southeast U.S. While its tolerance to heat, ability to form dense turf, and relatively good salt tolerance make it a great choice for coastal lawns, St. Augustinegrass is very susceptible to weed infestation.

It can also be sensitive to herbicides. Two applications of Specticle FLO at a rate of 3.5 ounces/acre will give you the tough weed control you need while preserving the health of the turf.

Why “cheaper” products actually cost you more

Lawn care professionals have limited preemergence or postemergence herbicide options to manage weed issues. Many preemergence herbicides do not adequately control a number of the hard-to-control weeds like doveweed, chamberbitter, and spurge. And postemergence herbicides can require repeated applications for control. While some options are less expensive up front, they ultimately cost more in the long run because they require more visits and more herbicide applications to get the job done right. Using Specticle FLO improves weed control, which reduces callbacks, improves customer retention, and ultimately increases profitability.
