Hi Nathan,corsair from lesco will clear your problem up.
I took these two days ago. I haven't cut my yard in 3 weeks since my lawnmower is in the shop. So this gives me a chance to see what I really have in my yard.If the picture is of something from last year, let me know!
What is a wick wiper? This is all over my yard in the back, and a little in the front.I would use roundup in a wick wiper, if it's just a small area.
Hopefully this is better.Some clearer pictures would help. Get pics of root/crown area, collar areas, and seed heads, if possible.
Is this it?Now that I get a closer look, and know that the pics are current, I can rule out nutsedge. Looks closer to canada bluegrass or a similar grassy weed. What a wick wiper is is a 6' long piece of 1" pvc plastic pipe with a tee fitting at the bottom end, with 2 2 to 3" nipples inserted into the tee. Inserted into these nipples are special end caps with rubber bushings. Inserted into both of these end caps is a special cotton rope, about 1/2 " in diameter. The idea of this contraption is that roundup solution, 1-2 % A.I. is poured into handle, and flows out the rope(wick). Rope is wet like a sponge, not dripping. You take the wiper and sweep back and forth over the taller weeds, getting the roundup on the taller weed, sparing the shorter, Desirable grass. If you are looking for one of these, suggest you try Gemplers, or A.M. Leonard. Maybe one of this site's sponsers carry them, as well.
