Thanks for the reply.g-man said:I did not finished typing before my 2yr old hit submit.
I would first start using weed b gone plus crabgrass control one. Lets hope it reacts since the alternatives are not pretty.
Thanks for the reply.LIgrass said:It would probably be better if the 2 threads were merged to get all responses and pics into 1 thread. JMO.
it kinda does look like young crabgrass but with nutsedge-like growth. g-man may be correct with Orchardgrass.
Yes and also notice that he says that the blade has to be bent in a natural way for the orchard grass.g-man said:I like that video. It is very detailed. I was looking at your images and I don't see a long ligule. (Ligule = http://www.countrysideinfo.co.uk/grass_id/grasses.htm )
I suggest not doing paralysis by analyze. Try seed b gone, then we try tanacity and then round up if needed.
Thanks for the all the tips.g-man said:You are the best person to tell since you have it in front of you. Foxtail is treated with the same herbicide as crabgrass, so the speactracide you used should work.
With weeds, it helps to feed them some nitrogen to encourage grow and absorption of the chemicals. If your weather allows it, consider it. Also be careful with hot temperature and herbicide. Read the label and ensure you dont apply when the temps are too high since it could kill your grass too.
Lastly, it is far easier to prevent the weeds from growing than to deal with them after the infested your lawn. The images you sent show quite a bit of this weed. For next year, I recommend you apply a pre-emergence product at max rate around march. Ideally it should not have fertilizer.
Yes. I like prodamine since it is really good and cheaper than dimension.kolbasz said:prodiamine? I am ordering the 5.5lb jug for this very reason. eliminate the need for fert with 10% dimension and allow me to do it in the fall for poa.
