Looks like nutsedge to me. Spreads by underground seeds and spreads by pulling vs herbicides.Chewbacca419 said:Hello, new guy here. I need help identifying and dealing with this. This long bladed grassy looking weed just started popping up in patches in my backyard. It pulls out of the ground with no effort whatsoever. It seems to be spreading though. My yard is a mostly tall fescue mix in the st. Louis area.
Uh oh. That's not what I was wanting to hear! Our weather is very dry this summer (record low rain), but I've been irrigating the lawn. The area is quite shady under tall conifer trees. The area where the weed is thriving is very moist. The irrigation system design here was done about 15 years ago and is just so-so. Some areas get a lot more irrigation than others.2L8 said:@Idaho Turf That looks like Poa trivialis to me. I'm a little surprised that Triv is thriving so well at your place now. Do you have wet weather at the moment or is the lawn in the shade?
