I have a lawn that is completly overgrowen by foxtails.

Basically the lawn needs a complete overhaul. The owners have dogs so that is a concern. I spent most my day today cutting down the knee high grass and raking everything up. The problem is that the foxtails dont rake up easily. They break up and stay all over the yard. They can cause major health problem for dogs so I need to get rid of them, any suggestions?

I know I can kill the foxtails with an herbicide but I am worried that if I get rid of them now then will just grow back next season when all the seeds germinate. Do you have any suggestions? Also so you have any sugestions on a product that will kill the foxtails and not the rest of the grass.

Thanks,
Nick
