At first, there will be very few weeds in tour new lawn. Over time, weeds will sprout, making fertilizer coverage paramount. if you see weeds in just a couple of areas, regular mowing can take care of your issue. A strong, sharp mower used on well-fed
lawns will keep most weeds under control.


Rotary mowers can handle tall grass with ease, but if it is not kept sharp, you will run into problems. Sharpening the blades before each usage is critical. Reel mowers are another type of mower used, and have several blades and can reduce the appearance of fungus.
Always make sure to remove all clippings after mowing.


Chinch bugs are another problem that must be dealt with. Chinch bugs are found on St. Augustine sod, and occasionally Bahia. You may also have to contend with mole crickets, which attack
Bahia sod, and army worms. There are insecticides that can be used to bring things under control.


If you have shady areas, fertilizing more often with smaller doses and mowing at a higher setting are the best protection. 


In summary, water regularly, mow with a very sharp mower, fertilize often, and watch out for any insects and treat that issue if needed. Check your lawn on a weekly basis.
Continuous care will give you a healthy lawn!
