Since someone had a thread about identifying a weed, I thought "Hey, why didnt I think of that?" and figured Id ask this here. Nobody I know locally is any help.
I have patches of Bermudagrass in the lawn. I dont want it in the lawn. Or anywhere else for that matter.
The only thing Ive come across this far to somewhat control it is Roundup. Trouble with that is fairly obvious, large dead patches all over the lawn. The other issue with that is that Bermudagrass takes a few applications to completely kill, and if you dont get it all, you obviously cant kill it all, and it WILL come back.
Now, if you dont know what Bermudagrass is, you are lucky, or maybe just dont care, in which case you are still lucky, lol!
If you do know what it is, and hate it like I do, let me know what you do to get rid of it.
At our old house, I went crazy on it. I sprayed it twice with Ornamec, and it worked pretty good. After that, in the Fall, I burned the dead patches with a torch. Why? Well, nature does it to renew things, and I figured why not. Plus it kills the seeds laying on top of the ground. That all worked pretty well, and only left a very few holdouts that were easy enough to just pull when they got big enough to show. Since Ornamec doesnt do much that Roundup doesnt (they say it doesnt hurt the other grasses as much, but it killed it dead at my old place), I figure theres not much point in spending the money on Ornamec this time, but maybe there is and Im just missing it.
Any help appreciated!
