Here Comes the Nutsedge

Friday, June 24, 2011
We are starting to see a lot of Nutsedge Grass appearing in the lawns.  This unsightly grassy weed occurs naturally in the soil and cannot be stopped by pre-emergence herbicide.  It can be controlled with a specialty herbicide such as Manage or Sedgehammer sprayed low volume when the leaf tissue is exposed as in this picture.  If you don't want to use the pesticide approach, then you always have the option of pulling it by hand, which can be effective.  I recomend waiting until the Nutsedge is finished its growth spurt in mid July to pull by hand.  You can call HillSide and we can provide a quote to treat the growth areas with the herbicide.
