Weed Control in a Scotts® ProVista™ St. Augustine Lawn for Homeowners

It’s a fact: Weeds Happen. Everyone wants a weed-free lawn, but nature has a different plan. So, what do you do?

Well, you don’t have to just settle for weeds in your lawn. With Scotts® ProVista™ St. Augustinegrass, you have powerful tools to combat and control weeds.

Starting Clean

From the very start, ProVista™ growers have weed control in mind. They provide meticulous care to ensure that during key growth stages, it’s difficult for weeds to get started or take hold.

Staying Clean

Once it’s installed, ProVista™ fights weeds with its natural growth pattern of a tight, dense formation. This helps crowds out grassy and broadleaf weeds, leaving them little room to grow.


Weeds will take advantage of the same water and feeding that nourish your healthy lawn. While ProVista™ is engineered to naturally crowd out weeds, a little help in that area is welcomed.

Complete Lawn Care

In the fall and spring, an application of Scotts® Turf Builder® Southern Triple Action kills and prevents dollarweed, clover, oxalis, plantain, chickweed, and henbit while also offering protection against armyworms, fleas, mole crickets, chinchbugs, sod webworms, and ticks. (As an extra bonus, it feeds the lawn too!)
