Drive to Kill St. Augintine and Torpedo Grass

I plan on replacing St. Augustine with Zoysia in the spring. Would it be more efficient to use Drive XLR now to kill everything instead of using RoundUp Pro Max?

Answer:

You may fair better with using the Roundup or any other Glyphosate product like it if you plan to take it to bare ground to reseed anyways. If there are more weeds and weedy grasses like crabgrass than actual lawn that would ensure you got all of the problem plants. Whereas using the Drive will eliminate many problem weeds/grasses however may not eliminate all of the ones in your lawn if they aren't all on the product label.
