Lawn Weeds

Crowsfoot grass

Lawn Weeds Crows Foot GrassThis is a very prolific seeder and is best dug out of a lawn as there are very few herbicides that will control it safely. It is best removed while a small plant as it is more difficult as it gets bigger. Round up or Zero will work for control in a weed wand.

Summergrass

Lawn Weeds Summer GrassThis is can be a real pest when it invades a lawn. It will root down very easily and is next to impossible to remove with chemicals in most lawns except couch. We recommend that it be removed by hand while young and before it sets seed. Herbicides including Round up or Zero can be used for spot spraying on most lawns or herbicide DSMA in couch. Remember to always follow the product label and application rates.

Wintergrass

Lawn Weeds Winter GrassAnother prolific seeder best removed as soon as it becomes visible. It generally grows in shaded areas and is only winter active. This can be removed by hand in smaller areas although this can be tedious. A specifically targeted herbicide control can be successful against this weed although it is critical to have properly calibrated spray equipment and be accurate with mixing and spraying.

Creeping Oxalis

Lawn Weeds Creeping OxalisThis can be very difficult to remove if it is left to establish in a lawn. When first detected, this needs to be sprayed using a herbicide such as Buffalo Weed Control. This will be safe to use on any turf variety with the directions followed according to the label.

Nutgrass

Lawn Weeds NutgrassNutgrass is difficult to control with herbicides and is best removed with a small spade. Try to dig under the plant and remove the tuber as it will regenerate again if left behind. A very prolific seeder which needs to be monitored in future seasons for further outbreaks. Herbicides can work although most do some damage to the surrounding lawn, so best avoided. Sedgehammer is a herbicide that can be used if Nutgrass is highly prevalent.

Bindii

Lawn Weeds BindiiQuite a nasty weed if left to mature. It has very spiky seed heads that make a lawn unusable until they are removed. Herbicide control is successful with Buffalo Weed Control with the directions followed on the label.
