    Attached is a Pic of a weed that I have in a LARGE lawn that I maintain. It is a grassy weed...THat is really all I know. This lawn is about 10,000sgft and about 10 % of it has this weed sporatically located throughout.

    I need to get rid of it. What is your suggestion..? I think a spray of somekind would work best for me, I'll do anything ...

    poa annua can be sprayed.

    We'd tell this customer to cool their jets!
    They don't see any dandilions or clover do they?

    Good job on this transitional weed we all see for the next few weeks until it really gets sunny & scortcher.

    this is a non-issue.
    inform them.

    I think that's wheat or oatgrass, just keep cutting the lawn normally, it'll gradually disappear on its own as the season progresses.

    Looks exactly like the grass/weed everyone is posting about this year and the only real solution I have heard is dig it up or round up it........

    Why does everyone say, "non issue" ? Because it will die come HOT weather ? Hey, the customer wants it gone. She ain't going to accept, ": Non Issue" ! LOL ! :dizzy:

    Did you sow this lawn last fall using wheat straw?
