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 are 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, fast reproducer 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 eradicate most of the population. Control of this weed is included in our program, no additional charges. We also have free service calls and this coming up in between visits is a good one to place. The more we stay on top of it, the better control we are going to have!
This is our first season using Dirt & Turf as we recently switched from a competitor. So far, we are very pleased. The lawn looks much better already and I appreciate the way they communicate with customers and let us know in advance when they are coming and what services they are performing. I also had a lot of questions before hiring them and they were very patient and answered my questions thoroughly. I am happy to recommend them.
Have used for the past 3+ years, and extremely happy. Very knowledgeable about lawn care and have significantly helped my lawn become much healthier. Extremely friendly and good customer service.
They are very prompt getting back to me with an concerns on the lawn I have!
Lawn looks good- still having problem getting rid of thick blade blue grass that is visible in the spring!
Like the smaller company attention
We've been working with Dirt & Turf for several years and have definitely seen an improvement. It's more healthy and thick.
When we moved in, the backyard was terrible - lots of moss and sandy soil. We replaced a large section of it, then researched lawn care companies to maintain it. I received several quotes, but D&T's was fair.
They come out several times a year and always email me a few days before they visit. They're always prompt and leave no mess.
Christine who works in the service dept is very friendly, knowledgeable, and quick to reply to my emails.
We are happy with the change in our lawn since hiring D&T!
Excellent customer service, calls ahead to remind you
Best looking grass on my block :), Awesome landscape knowledge
i highly recommend.
