Last year, I took about half a dozen sprigs from the overgrown edges of my neighbor's yard and just stuck them in the ground in my back yard. I watered them every day for about a week and they took root. Then weeds took over this spring and I assumed it was all gone. But now the rain has resurrected it. I've got about 4 patches that are 1-3 feet in diameter.

We were planning to resod after installing an irrigation system. But now I'm thinking that the St. Aug will eventually take over and cover the lawn if I can just keep the weeds at bay. My wife says it will never work.

What do the experts say? It's about 1600 square feet of lawn and those patches are all I have. Of course, I can plant more scraps from the edges, too.

With adequate sunlight, fertilization & water (when the rain stops), ST. Augustine will choke out most weeds. Keep it mowed high.
