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.

brewnmn....

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

    •   When someone gets to the personal aspect, whether it's me or someone else, I will challenge them and if they can justify what they have said about an individual --OK -- otherwise show me why, and if it is just their opinion say so. I'll accept that if it's their opinion.   There is nothing generic about an insult, an insult is an insult. What do you consider as a douchebag?
    • Not sure why people get so worked up about being called dummies, poopyheads and sons of bees.  Whatever, its generic insults and this is the internet.   But yeah, there's a line somewhere in the there that separates the real douchebags* from the rest of us.  You know it when you see it.   *Sorry if any douchebags felt personally attacked by being called douchebags.
    • I was addressing it to JigSawJimmy Peatmoss  response : That's an opinion, not anything more , so I let it go.
    • Created/Saved all these jobs, cut gajillions off AF1 costs, etc.  Ok, so how did the that work?  Usually these sort of dealings aren't totally one sided.  At least the carrier deal had a bunch of Pence fingerprints on tax incentives Trump took credit for.   I have doubts that King Cheeto just shows up and blows a bunch of smoke up assses and corporate executives are just like, "Yay!"   Is Trump's Twitter bully pulpit that powerful?  He randomly yells at Boeing and they just fold over for him?  I thought we realized Trump on Twitter is only for the LOLs.
    • Well hope the Trump supporters are having fun, seems those days are numbered. Turns out you can't just yell fake news at real news and make it go away. The Feds are closing in, and at best it seems Trump thinks throwing Manafort to the wolves might get them off his tail. Anywho, lots of news today.   The FBI has information that indicates associates of President Donald Trump communicated with suspected Russian operatives to possibly coordinate the release of information damaging to Hillary Clinton's campaign   McCain: Congress doesn't have 'credibility' to handle Russia probes    Because this happened - House Intelligence chair discloses classified intel in clumsy effort to validate Trump   Also this earlier in the day -  Former campaign manager Paul Manafort secretly worked for a Russian billionaire with a plan to "greatly benefit the Putin Government."     And in completely unrelated news - remember those Carrier jobs you bragged about Trump saving? Yeah, those jobs are gone. Carrier pocketed the tax breaks then screwed the workers anyway. Great negotiation there. http://www.nbcchicago.com/news/local/job-cuts-endure-at-indiana-factories-despite-trump-pressure-416511193.html
    •   Who are you addressing this to? I did not make the statement only re-posted it. I also don't find PEATMOSS's comment very humorous as well.   PEATMOSS said: This is still, by far, the funniest thing I have ever read on these threads in a decade.
    •   Anything you post on here from now on has no merit or credibility as far as I'm  concerned.  I wasn't even going to respond to this, but feel what you posted needed to be. If you wish to call my mother a dam, you will, the same as you called another persons mother that. I don't give a rats butt what your political views are, however when you start getting into personal attacks you had better look in a mirror. You don't probably don't know anyone on here personally, yet you attack someone on a personal bases, call there mother a dam and ridicule them because they had a lower portion of a leg amputated due to something they can control, but had no control whether they have the illness and sometime that illness makes you pay a price. BD2 has that illness he can control to a certain extent where he can lead a normal life, however there will be complications and from what I know of him he will accept that. I don't know DB2 personally, I've never met him, I've debated against some thing on this where he and I have had different views, I respect his opinions even though I disagree on many, BUT I SURE AS H--- DON"T ATTACK HIS ANCESTORY OR  ANY TYPE OF DISABILLITY
