    Is there anything that will kill bermuda out of a lawn that will not kill rye or fuscue?

    I ask this question at my local Lesco Dealer earlier this year and the answer was no. Aim the round-up carefully.

    Agree with Barkleymut. Works well, best to apply in the spring around here when the Bermuda is starting to green back up from the winter. Will yellow the fescue for around 10 days. Cost $$$$ ($100 a pint I think) but is worth it.

    Kirby, I think you mean Barkleymut not Bob. By the way I paid about $75 at Lesco a year ago for a pint.

  7. Turflon of Ester kills bermuda without damaging other grasses,provided you follow directios. It is expensive however.
