So i saw a small patch of Henbit started to pop up and I’ve been working the last year to get my new yard looking great.(the area its in is still struggling with crabgrass but it appears i got a good hold onto it this past fall) so after seeing this patch i got a good weed and feed thats supposed to take car of both crabgrass, henbit and clovers(which i have also) i spread if throughout the yard and here we are a week later and the Henbit has spread like wildfire throughout the entire area i still have trouble with crabgrass but isn’t spreading into my thicker fescue areas. What did i do wrong and what can i do at this point the kill it off without over doing it?
My first time having my own lawn and first winter. Henbit and dandelion popping up everywhere.
I read other posts re: henbit and dandelion. They usually said that I don't need to take care of them now and that spring is a better time. But without any measure, they seem to grow and spread like crazy. My solution is hand pulling henbits and using a weed puller for dandelions. I don't know what I am doing right now is the right move. I feel especially scared when the weed puller pulls a lot of grass and soil!
How should I deal with these henbits and dandelions?
Edit: forgot to add the grass type is bermuda.
We just moved into a rental that had been sitting vacant. There are a ton of oak leaves we need to clear up and that back yard is covered in henbit.
It’s my first time with a lawn, do I pick up the leaves then spray the weed killer? Will that cause more weed germination?
What weed killer do I use for henbit and St Augustine grass?
I doubt it was fertilized/fed in the fall. Do I do that now or wait until March?
Thanks! Location; Austin TX.
Have KBG and would like to spot treat with some post emergent. Any recommendations? I plan to spray Prodiamine pre emergent in mid February or late February.
