    Like the title says, what are the most common grassy weeds you deal with? More specific to my question is the midwest guys especialy IN,MI,IL, OH region. Besides the obvious crabgrass.
  2. im not licensed to treat turf and i am in Florida, but the main one's i see to be a common issue are goosegrass,crabgrass, sedge, and bermuda. On wet/damp sites, torpedograss.

    brome ,k31, forage ryes and the other 10,000 native and forage grasses that form multi-colored clumps in outer perimeter of the lawn .I had a neighborhood full of orchard grass this year do to a adjoining alfalfa field .They commonly over seed declining hay and pasture ground and guess where it ends up .If I can id it ,good .If I do not have the time to rack my brain, it gets round up ,sod or seeded .Hence the term tolerable threshold quantity.

    K31 and Quackgrass. Quack being the worst problem you can have around here.
