I have what I think is called nut grass invading a small area of my lawn, and it looks horrible against my Bermuda grass. Any good remedies to get rid of it? I researched online and saw things like sugar, or boiling water, or sedgehammer herbicide, to digging up the section of lawn 7-9" deep to get all the seeds.

thoughts?

Sedgehammer is about the only thing that works. We started having it applied 4 years ago and this is the first summer that we have not seen any come up (so far).

I have also had good luck using Sedgehammer to get rid of nut grass. I had to spray it about 3 times (3 months or so apart) to get rid of it. The only place I could find it was on Amazon.

Along withSledgehammer here are a couple of products you can buy locally that will work also. No matter what you use it probably will take several applications to eradicate the weeds. I've used full strength Round-up myself with good results.

Thanks, so the old sprinkle sugar or pour hot boiling water over it will not work?

I am reading that maybe the over watering/poor drainage I probably have is contributing to the growth of it. Is it moisture that causes it?
