Centipede grass weed control
I have discovered my yard in being invaded by medick (black clover) living in South Carolina with clay diet is only soil type there. WhAt would be the best approach to eliminating this pest from the yard? Any simple nutrients, lawn care or chemicals to nullify this predicament?

The best control is achieved by using a weed control product that contains glyphosate. Now would be the best time to spray to control Centipede. Unfortunately, glyphosate is a non selective weed control and will kill both the desired and undesired grasses. Therefore, the area will need to be reseeded. I will state that there is a possibility that some of the Centipede will survive and start growing again in the spring. Although it is not as effective, a broadleaf weed control that contains 2, 4-D will damage or even kill Centipede grass. It is best applied in late spring/early summer when the Centipede breaks dormancy and starts growing again.
