A: Most likely, it’s not a grass, but a weed. A common weed in recent years with this characteristic is yellow nutsedge. Nutsedge is a type of sedge, which is caused by an abundance of water. “Nut” refers to the roots. At the bottom of the roots are nuts (bulbs). If the bulbs are not appropriately wiped out, this weed will come back each year. Nutsedge can double in population in one year! Many herbicides are labeled for nutsedge, but very few control it. Every pesticide labeled for this weed will state “suppression or control of nutsedge”, you are left to figure out which one you get. The goal is to get control, killing this weed down to the bulb. Suppression looks like control, the plant dies, but the bulb remains intact. A bulb that was suppressed may not send a new plant until the following year, making results of the herbicide difficult to assess. If you take the time to spray for nutsedge one year and next summer, it is not any better or worse, use a different herbicide! Since this is a very fast growing weed, reproduces rapidly and is only up in the summer months when you are limited at spraying herbicides in the heat, will make this a very difficult weed to control. It may take a couple years to completely eradicate nutsedge, but most of the population shoud be controlled in the first year . Control of this weed is included in our program, no additional charges. If this weed comes up in between visits, that is a good time to take advantage of our free service calls. The more we stay on top of it, the better control we are going to have!
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.
