I live in central Iowa, I am curious am I to late for grab grass preventer? I like keeping my lawn weed free.
Also I have a few spots in my yard where a longer grass will grow its not like the other grass either it seems courser and off color.
Possible Nutsedge or quack grass. How do I kill it?TeamAsgrowParticipantApril 27, 2015 at 4:49 pmPost count: 9152iceking25ParticipantApril 27, 2015 at 4:52 pmPost count: 2908e.fork-walleyeParticipantApril 27, 2015 at 5:44 pmPost count: 171iceking25ParticipantApril 27, 2015 at 5:48 pmPost count: 2908e.fork-walleyeParticipantApril 27, 2015 at 5:57 pmPost count: 171
I’m went through the same thing. I planted my yard 2 years ago and am now having some clover wanting to take over in a few spots. The first year I had that other grass popping up all over. Everytime time I went outside I’d try to go to one area and pull out as much of that ugly grass as I could. It kinda sucked but it’s definitely looking a lot better now. I just sprayed Trimec last night to wipe out the clover and other stuff, but am still pulling out some of that gass in spots.TeamAsgrowParticipantApril 27, 2015 at 6:03 pmPost count: 9152

With it being so early in the season, the tall coarse grass is not likely any type of crab grass, but it is likely tall fescue. And unfortunately because it is so closely related to all the other fescue grasses, there isn’t much you can do to be rid of tall fescue other than dig up and reseed the spot with a desired grass.maxxParticipantApril 27, 2015 at 7:52 pmPost count: 2495
In reality you should do both. You should be putting down the pre-emergent in the early spring. This catches most of the weeds but not all of them. You can then spray with Trimec later in the year when the weeds come back, they will come back.
I believe Q4 will kill crabgrass but not your regular grass.
FYI you can only use Trimec a few times a summer. You have to give the grass sometime to rest, if you put to much down you will kill your grass. My neighbor killed 2 acres of grass two summers back. His yard is finally starting to look decent again.klub222ParticipantApril 27, 2015 at 8:20 pmPost count: 409mj1966ParticipantApril 27, 2015 at 8:58 pmPost count: 337troutParticipantApril 27, 2015 at 11:18 pmPost count: 1078PCIParticipantApril 27, 2015 at 11:54 pmPost count: 2118iceking25ParticipantApril 28, 2015 at 3:09 amPost count: 2908iceking25ParticipantApril 28, 2015 at 4:43 pmPost count: 2908tim ballardParticipantApril 28, 2015 at 7:32 pmPost count: 2782
