    There seems to be a lot of talk about Grassy Weeds here. As everyone know, they are a major pain in the A~~ !

    Is there a herbicide that works well on all types of Grassy weeds..?

    Be more specific about exactly what "grassy weed" you're talking about.

    Fusilade II can handle quite a few of them....but from the timing of your blog (early spring), I'm betting you're talking about some weeds that aren't on the Fusilade II label.

    Mostly look like Foxtail, but most people on this site say it's too early for Foxtail...

    That's a really safe bet!

    I'm also betting that you don't have a New Jersey pesticide license, am I right ?!?

    Why don't you post a digital pic or two....try to get a regular distance and a "close-up" shot.

    O.K....so this is all a "revamp" of a discussion that took place almost EXACTLY a year ago on this site, HUH ?!?

    And you tried the dihydrogen-monoxide thing, and it didn't work ?
    (kidding !!!) :laugh::laugh:

    One more question before I guess :
    Are these seedheads consistently coming up all over the yard; or just in "little patches" like the picture from spring 2007 you posted above ?

    And you didn't answer my question about the pesticide licensing...
    (I won't "tell"...I promise ! :rolleyes:)

    What's your guess for getting rid of it...?

    Still not certain...

    Get down on down hands and knees if you will... and cut out a tiny little piece of this weedy area with a hand trowel or whatever...
    Can you tell if the grassy-weed has a rhizomous-type root system... or not ?

    And just wondering...:confused:
    When you did your "spot seeding" work in 2006-2007 or whenever, did you use some type of cheap "hay" (instead of actual STRAW) from someplace ?
