Lawn Invader - Need help

9 posts in this topic

Can anyone ID this stuff?

I have patches popping up more and more each year and would like to get it out of my bluegrass. It is very fine and lime green in color. Patches range from small to 3 sq. ft.

Could it be grub damage? Peels up like carpet.

Thanks

Its probably bentgrass, but hard to tell from the photo.

Only way to get rid of it is with roundup or other non-selective herbicide.

Yup, looks like bentgrass. It has a really shallow root system. To get rid of it, what powerstroke said. And get rid of it soon, the stuff spreads like wildfire

Looks like POA Annual, the only way to get rid of it is what the others have already stated, Round Up. Try to apply it only to the problem, use a small paint brush if you need to; this will prevent the Round Up killing your good grass.

One way to suppress the growth is to apply crabgrass preventer down this fall (September) and again next next spring. It will help prevent the seeds from germinating.

Based on the small picture,it looks like you have a nice green lawn. Any pictures of the entire yard?

Thanks for the help guys. I have some work ahead of me to get it all. Can you apply Roundup around tree's?

Here are a few pics of the backyard Icepro.

Icepro,

I was just checking out the pics of your yard.

Looks awesome!!

The only flaw I see is that your mower lines are off about a tenth of an inch.

Good looking yard, I like the layout of your patio.

I wish I could only be of a tenth of an inch,I hate crooked lines mower lines.

The use of any chemicals around trees should be used with caution. If you brush the Round Up onto the plant so no chemicals leach into the soil you should be fine.

As the others have said that stuff is nasty. I do a commercial property where I can't get rid of it. I thought I had sprayed it all with round-up the last 2 falls and it is back again. Apparently if you don't spray every single blade it comes back and laughs at you....... mad
