    I have Quackgrass in lawn areas that are both all TTTF and mixed KBG and ryegrass. Total area affected about 1/2 acre. I dont want to kill the whole lawn with Roundup. Is there anything that will kill the Quack without killing the grass?

    Good question...
    I don't know if there are any selective controls available for quackgrass.
    It can be an absolute nightmare... in spots!

    Only Certainty can do this without killing bluegrass. It will wipe out your ryegrass, though, and damage the fescue badly.

    That's probably why I haven't heard about it.
    Everywhere I run into it...it seems it's around tall fescue.

    The only people who have bluegrass lawns in S. Ohio are people who seem to like to work too hard for their own good...and/ or don't mind paying for renovation work every other year or so !!!
