    I have ID'ed a weed I'm having a BIG problem with this year, Foxtail. Most people say, use MSMA based product. Here is my problem. THe lawn That I need to use it on is 10,000sqft with is sporacically spotted with the Foxtail. I realy need to treat the whole lawn. I'm not looking to make much profit on this. It is for one of my best customers who brings me alot of bussiness.

    How do I do such a large space ? Will Deminsion from Lesco do it ?

    PLEASE HELP ! ! :dizzy:

    Does it look like this? Foxtail.

    Foxtail is similar to crabgrass. Summer annual. Seeds sprout the same time as crabgrass. It is early--maybe you have something else. How about showing us a picture?

    Quackgrass, tall fescue, orchard grass or some other perennial grass are likely suspects if the problem arose early in the year. Is this a new lawn or established?

    YES ! I'm sure it is Foxtail. Go to this link where I had posted a previous Pic. As I said before, I have a large lawn to deal with, 10,000sqft and need a LARGE solution...

    That is not foxtail. Foxtail germinates about the same time as crabgrass. It would not be going to seed until early august. I never find it in established lawns. The picture is a bit blurry to id it.

    It's definely a grassy weed. Could be a perennial. Tall fescue, windmill grass, etc. It doesn't look like an annual grassy weed.

    Crabgrass shows up before foxtail. Windmill grass appears by mid summer. Tall fescue seeds out by June. Not sure what the pic is, but I'm guessing it's a perennial grassy weed. Can't tell from the pics. Dallisgrass/tall fescue???

    Definitely NOT Buckhorn Plantain. The pictures show a grassy weed, not a broadleaf weed Nathan. Buckhorn Plantain doesn't look anything like that.
