A: Bad. This is a weed called kyllinga. The spiked balls are actually seed heads of kyllinga, which you do not want to reproduce. Unfortunately, this type of sedge is the most difficult to control and resembles grass very closely. Kyllinga is about the same height of grass, but has a different shade of green and tends to have a glossy appearance. Very few herbicides even have this particular weed on their label and to get control of it, requires a lot of extra care. When this plant is killed, it will get a reddish-brown when most plants would get a yellowish-brown. Many times this weed will look it was killed (controlled), but it was only suppressed and can easily come back! Using the right herbicide and limiting water flow to these areas is the only solution. If negelected, kyllinga coverage could double in just one year.
I started using Dirt and Turf last year to see if they could improve my lawn which was giving me problems for years. I have tried other companies both large and small but they have been the best by far. Honest and informative my lawn finally looks great.
I highly recommend Dirt & Turf. The staff is very professional and reliable. My lawn has done a complete transformation! Before it was mostly weeds and crab grass. Now my lawn is actually grass and beautiful. Thank you!
My lawn was in terrible shape three years ago! Now its one of the nicest lawns in the neighborhood. I had used the "big" lawn services in the past. Not even close to dirt and Turf! They get back to you right away and will come out upon request. Great company to deal with. Couldn't be happier with them.
Excellent service, knolwegable staff. Always easy to reach someone, proactive text notifications of upcoming treatments, easy to make payments directly on their website. Many services available, from fertilizer to pest and mosquito control, as well as aeration, seeding, and lime treatments.
Patrick is very responsive and understands the needs of his customers. Have been using his services for 5 years and hoping for many more years.
