Thank you. My entire lawn was 'intentionally' Bermuda! Couldn't remember the name. I just knew whenever I saw the seed thingy I was happy. I had the most beautiful lawn of Bermuda until we had an awful freeze here that killed everything, including any weeds. I was never able to recover the lawn no matter how I tried. Sad, because it was my first lawn and I worked so hard to keep it.

Also search on the internet but couldn't identify it. Does anybody had encounter same weed before? Thanks in advance.
What you have is your basic nutsedge
in bloom. It's going to be a long tedious
arduous road to control/kill.

Tenacity by Syngenta. Google it or look it up on Amazon. Not cheap, and at first not a lot of product, but there is a reason for why it comes with a dropper, and it will last a long time (making it much cheaper than the big box stuff that hardly works in general). Read the label, a few drops into a multi-gallon sprayer, and treat the lawn. Will absolutely wipe out the grassy weeds while saving the actual grass (but check for Bermuda lawn first). Excellent profession-grade stuff.

Since all grasses rely on the enzyme that Tenacity inhibits, I suggest you tread carefully and pretest under your conditions before going whole hog on the entire lawn. But if it works it sounds miraculous.

It is not nutsedge, and it is not Bermuda grass. The seed stalks look like crab grass to me.....hard to tell the way the leaves are flourishing in a tight group...will look further and get back to you.

I've used it twice on mine (tall fescue) and has done wonders. I personally use it in conjunction with Drive XLR8 (crabgrass) and TZone SE (broadleaf weeds) with spectacular results. Nothing but premium tall fescue, just like I planted it to be.


But, strong stuff here, and shouldn't be used like the typical "attached to a garden hose sprayer" stuff from the big-box stores. It truly is professional grade stuff used on golf courses. If you don't have a backpack sprayer with the right spray tip (fan) and apply in the right manner (walk steadily in one direction while applying to area), then yes, you can do some damage. But if you want professional results, then apply in a professional manner and enjoy the professional compliments that will soon follow.
