Hey guys... What's this stuff called?
I haven't seen any in a long time.
Cant really tell by the pic, but it looks kind of like nutsedge.
This is what i thought. It seems to short and it seems to be branching out at the top.
Take a pic from the side.
Yep! That is what it looks like.
It's killinga. It's a member of the nutsedge family.
Id even go as far to say Yellow Nutsedge. go to your local chemical shop and if you got a License, the'll let you buy something called MANAGE its a small container about as large as a big bottle of tylenol. it is specifically for Nutsedge.....works good, and will not harm most grasses. It has a side effect in that it also gets out dollar weed, but is not labeled as such
Sedge is a water freindly plant, but once established and can survive well on low water...
good luck you only need a bit less than a teaspoon for 1000 sqft. it is a water soluable granular product.
Are nut sedge is very tall with about two shoots coming out of the top.
Here is a second look from the side.
Just didn't post it first because you can't see the ball in the fork of the tri-blades.
It can get about 12" tall and it grown twice as fast as anything around it. if you have it you could come back in two days it will be 2" higher than the rest of the turf.
also if you look at the cross section of the botom of the stem it will apear to be triangular....
like eveyone esle has said ill have to agree its definatly nutsedge esp by looking at the second pics its more apparent
