How do you rid a Saint Augustine lawn of Bahia grass?

There is not really any weed control out there that will kill one type of grass and not the other. If you want to get rid of Bahia grass in St. Augustine, you best bet is to spray the areas of Bahia grass with Roundup (the ready to use kind with the blue sprayer). Avoid as much of the St. Augustine as you can as Roundup is non selective, and then in the bare areas left by the dead Bahia grass you can put new St. Augustine in 7 days later. If the bare areas left are not too large, you can fertilize the St. Augustine encouraging it to spread into the bare areas.

How is runner grass different from tufted grass?

Runner grass and tufted grass are two different types of grasses that have distinct characteristics. Runner grass, creeping grass, or stoloniferous grass, spreads through above-ground runners or stolons, which develop roots and form new plants. Runner grasses have a fast growth rate and can quickly cover a large area. They also have a dense growth habit, which makes them suitable for use as a ground cover. Some common types of runner grass include Bermuda grass, Zoysia grass, and St. Augustine grass. On the other hand, tufted grass, also known as a bunch grass, grows in clumps or bunches, with each clump consisting of several grasses stems. Tufted grasses are slow-growing and don't spread like runner grasses. They are often used for ornamental purposes, as well as for grazing by livestock. Some common types of tufted grass include fescue, bluegrass, and ryegrass. In summary, runner grass spreads through above-ground runners, while tufted grass grows in clumps or bunches. Runner grasses have a fast growth rate and dense growth habit, while tufted grasses are slow-growing and often used for ornamental and grazing purposes.
