    I've been noticing even more and more of this: looks like a baby version of liriope to me and I sure hope to god it's not because that stuff is impossible to get rid of... then again I doubt it is because I'm pretty sure that stuff spreads via root system and the placement of these weeds is too sporadic to be by roots.


    So what is it and what kills it? I've got every kinda weed killing product under the sun but would rather not go through them all seeing what works. MSMA? Revolver? ???

    Nutsedge, probably came in with the topsoil. Spreads via root, and nodes.

    Manage, or Lesco has the off patent called sedgehammer.

    OK thanks for the advice, I was used to nutsedge looking more fully developed. I've killed it on this lawn before but as you mentioned, probably came in with the top soil. I have both manage and image on hand so it should be no problem.

    I think you may also have some creeping bent there also, hard to tell.

    I would have to agree, looks like nutsedge to me.
