    Hi all. I am new to this forum and wasn't sure where to post this. Could anyone tell me what kind of grass this is? I think it is centepide grass but am not 100% sure. Also does anyone know what weed this is? Its starting to pop up everywhere in my lawn.

    Thanks!!

    Not sure on either but I am pretty sure that all the tips of your grass are pretty battered up....time to sharpen the mower blades.

    the grass appears to be fescue but as mentioned above sharpen those blades..

    I will sharpen the blades. Just bought the mower used and he told me the blades were in good shape. Didn't really look at them so I will be taking them off this week and sharpening them. Thanks!

    That weed in the pic on the right is some sort of nut sedge. Get some sedge pro or sedge hammer
     
  9. Can you spray that over creeping junipers in shrub beds?

    Im not sure, you will have to look at the label. If I can remember, I will look later. I will be spraying a few gallons this week.
