View Full Version : Intro / Identify help

Hey everybody

Quick introduction.....

I've been working maintenance at a local golf course for a couple of years, and I really enjoy this line of work, especially striping out a green :). So I've been looking at starting a landscape / lawncare business in the somewhat near future. I'm 19, still live in my parents house (economy / housing price are ridiculous here), and have no desire to be some dude in a suit coat and tie, I'd much rather be working outside and covered in grass clippings :)

Anyways.... My dad had been mowing the lawn for the past 12 years that we have lived in this house, and well, he's not very good at it. So I told him not to worry about the lawn, and that I'll take care of it. Well, I forgot that smack in the middle of our front yard was a giant patch of weeds that I cannot Identify. It's slowly spreading and killing the grass.

At first I thought some weed control spray might work, but to no avail. So I decided to go head first into it and dig all of it out and plant new grass.

But umm... Anybody have any ideas as to what it is and how I can fully get rid of it. The roots on this thing are ridiculous :dizzy:
