I have used ornemec with good results. By following the labe I have not experienced any collateral plant damage. Your results will vary on the grass you are trying to kill and the temperature. Nut grass usually takes at least 2 apps.

I used Ornimec a few years ago on some grass in Euonymus ground cover. I used it in three applications. It turned the grasses brown, but never a total kill. Never any damage to the Euonymus. I finally used Roundup with total kill of pests and no damage to Euonymus.

I think my Ornimec problem was the owner kept turning on the irrigation system the afternoon of my apps. Everytime I placed a note in the controller stating about the app and not to turn on water until a designated date. Everytime I went to turn it back on, it was back on already.
