    I have bermuda grass and it looks like I have a problem with Nutgrass. Any suggestions as what to use on it without killing my bermuda?

    I have little luch with Manage until the temperature gets to 90. The nut grass is getting worse each year in our area. We are starting to look at what we can do organic to improve the situation. We are aerating and using corn meal which is recommended by local expert. We had some luck last year in a bed lirope using the cornmeal but it will be hard to do entire lawns.

    Not sure how to get rid of nutsedge without chemicals. That is a very difficult weed. But I have seen that overwatering causes it to thrive. Bermuda does not need much (or any, if there is some rain) supplemental irrigation - but the weeds love it.
