Anyone able to post a photo for me. I have a pic saved in my email and Id like to confirm the type of weed this is before I nuke the yard.tim ballardParticipantApril 28, 2015 at 7:32 pmPost count: 2782
Nutsedge has a triangular base and round up wont touch it. Like the the other poster said you need sedge hammer or something that is meant for sedges. Basagran makes a sedge killer that works better for me than sedge hammer. the stuff im referring to kills sedges and not clover or grasses.iceking25ParticipantApril 28, 2015 at 8:27 pmPost count: 2908

I believe you might have to spray at least 2 times to get it all. The stuff I used is called basagran sedge control by southern Ag. I got on DO YOUR OWN PEST CONTROL.COM Its a 8 oz bottle but it goes a long ways. I think you will notice sedge hammer doesn’t do a whole lot unless you spend the money for control of an acre. Just thought I would mention this incase you can’t find sedge hammer. For me it wasn’t as effective as the basagran stuff.reit38ParticipantApril 29, 2015 at 1:45 pmPost count: 262
What’s the difference between trimec and 2-4-DtroutParticipantApril 29, 2015 at 10:48 pmPost count: 1078
Price $$ you get what you pay for depending on what type of Trimec it will have % of 2 4 D in it and up to a few other ingredients to attack selective undesirables fancy label and name a star is born. Straight low vol ester 2 4 D works well all by itself at a fraction of cost .twdenneyBlockedApril 30, 2015 at 2:21 amPost count: 772
Grazon P+D will outperform any Trimec product or any 2-4-D product hands down guaranteed. NO COMPARISON! But you must have commercial applicators license to obtain it legally. Try it it will turn clover, dandelion, and creeping charley black in 12 hours. Only need to use it every other year.twdenneyBlockedApril 30, 2015 at 2:22 amPost count: 772

I heard if you let you grass grow taller and cut it high don’t remove more theN 1/3 of the grass blade it will grow better and crowd out so your yard will not get weeds…I am trying it this year with my own yard…I mowed last year at 3″ moved it to 4″this year… Also switch mowing patterns don’t always mow the same way…

True. Taller grass shades out weeds. Also is better for the grass plant in general….more green plant more opportunity for photosynthesis. Lawns do better mowed long and have a more unique look but it is not what we are accustomed to or are taught to think looks nice.
