Exclamation What is this?

I have a client that wants rid of this grass or weed. Whatever it is. What is this stuff called and how can you get rid of it?

She wants me to kill the whole lawn and redo it, but if there's another way to save her money, that'll be good.

I've heard it be called "fall grass" because it mainly comes up in fall.

Yeah. I'd compare it to pulling out a small thistle.

Yeah, I'd say nutsedge then. You can use "Sedgehammer" (which used to be called "Manage") but you can't get it unless you have a pesticide license. If I remember correctly the last time I looked at it, it was right around $100 per oz. I think you can get smaller quantities now though.

Ohio requires licensing to apply pesticides to a lawn. You'll get fined. You also need to be insured against misapplication, spills and other possibilities.

I recommend you call in a certified applicator until you can get your license and insurance in place.

Grrrr. Well, would her husband be able to do it? Cause I'm sure he knows how, he just wants new grass. :P

Your best bet is to call your local cooperative extension office.
