Notes:

Underneath all the weeds in the 20 x 20 foot area planted over 40 years ago by previous owners are thousands of bulbs that bloom in early spring! What will kill the weeds yet not harm the bulbs/flowers/St Augustine grass? Preem (I think) used several years ago made a bare area. I’ve tried hand pulling but it doesn’t solve the problem.

    I’ve heard of Landscapers using a product called Amaze. It kills weeds but doesn’t harm other plants. Also, this gardener may consider placing some sort of mulch around the desired plants to smother the unwanted ones. It may not solve the problem completely but will help and adds beauty to the area. Good luck!

    In this size of flowerbed, it will be difficult to keep herbicide from over spray into desirable plants. Even if all the previous weeds were remove, new weeds will eventually gain foothold. Some weeds have runners , rhizomes these have to be removed as well. This is endless garden chore. If this is my garden, I would dig up all the bulbs & flowers, kill the weeds and replant the bulbs & flowers with another smaller and more manageable size. But this is your garden so you can plant any size of flowerbed you desire. Although I’m unable to recommend any products, copy & paste the included link below for tips how to using herbicide in flowerbed. Best wishes!
