My neighbors yard is covered in back and now spreading to his front. I have found patches of this weed in my yard. How do I stop the spread? If I kill in my yard and he doesn't treat his am I fighting a losing battle?
We would recommend using Sedgehammer Herbicide. It is labeled to control mallow after it has already emerged. Sedgehammer can be used on just about any type of lawn, St. Augustine included. The Sedgehammer will control it in your lawn but your neighbor would have to do the same thing in order to make sure it is not continually spreading. Please let us know if you have any additional questions.
