Nut Grass - LaVelle110 - 04-30-2009

Hello, I was wondering if anyone out there might have a clue for me on how to get rid of nut grass. It is driving me crazy.

Yeah, according to Wikipedia this is one of the most successful (i.e.- spread across 6 continents and almost impossible to eradicate) weeds on the planet. The University of Georgia website has some suggestions for the control/eradication of this plant, but you'll need to identify exactly which species of nut grass you're dealing with. Luckily, the site gives a couple of pointers to help with identification.

If all else fails, embrace your nut grass! The Wiki page indicates that the tubers are nutritious, if rather bitter tasting... [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

Nutgrass can be a real problem and the only way I deal with it is to dig it out. If any of the "nuts" are left underground then it keeps growing and spreading.

You can control nutsedge in your lawn by applying Ortho® Nutsedge Killer Ready-To-Spray. It's effective against newly emerged and established sedges. The weed is yellowed in 1-2 days, and complete kill occurs in 2- 3 weeks. It can be used on Northern and Southern turf grasses and is rainproof in 2 hours.
