Do you have a picture from the side so the stalk can be seen instead of straight down?

Not bermuda. Get some 2 4 D and spray a small section with weeds in it. If it is Bermuda it will kill only the weeds. If it kills the grass too then you know it is not Bermuda.

Since we have a thread on grass I've got some grass that grows in the back yard and have never seen a weed in it. Only gets about 2.5 inches tall and never turns brown during the longest drought. Wish I had a whole yard of it.

24-D or dicamba should take care of broadleaf without hurting your grass. Re-apply in 7 days if they aren't dead!

Don't mix either too stout, they will harm your grass at stouter doses. It's like a tablespoon per gallon... doesent take much

No. I have a bemuda yard that never fully recovered from the drought a few years back and weeds have innundated where the grass died or thinned.

I've become hell bent on restoring it without having to re-sod. So I've been researching and I have a friend that runs the King Ranch turf farm in lubbock and I've been picking his brain.

Can you find out what will kill crabgrass in Zoysia? MSMA is not good on it!

This, Amine 400 is another name you will find it at the feed store for about $10 and it will last a long time as your only use about 2 oz per gallon. Mix in sprayer. It won't kill grasses, only broadleaf weeds. Tractor supply has it also. You only need the quart size.

I use BroadStrike for crab grass in my Bermuda, it's a pre-emergent though. You can also use Scout for the crab grass after its already growing.

I use this to get rid of burr weed around the house, works really well. Pretty sure the stuff will go bad before I ever use it all.

It's actually called torpedo grass. It overtook my st Augustine last year and it's very hard to kill. There is a product out there that will kill,it, but it's kinda pricey. I just resodded it instead, and it's still coming out in certain spots. Gonna have to stay on top of it and not let it take over again.
