Hi there,

I am wanting to know what I can spray on this to kill it without hurting my hybrid bermuda lawn. The sod was laid December 15th 2011, these weeds have been coming up since mid February. I have pulled them all once before but they just come back. I sent pictures of them to Scotts and one time they said it was lemon Grass, and another time they said it was goose grass. any help would be awesome.

    Go to lows and look for the herbicide that you hook up to your watering hose. It’s about $22. It has a picture of all kinds of different weeds. It also will list all the grasses it does not kill. White bottle. I have used it on my Bermuda and it works fine. Doesn’t kill the clover looking weeds though.

    I found out it is either canary grass or johnson grass. I dont know what will kill it besides round up and round up will kill the grass.

    This looks like a common annual rye grass. Electric green and growing to beat the band during late winter and early spring! Mow it and let the heat kill it or, spend your money on some Revolver. http://www.supremeturfproducts.com/PDF/revolver.pdf

    You can spray roundup glyphosate on dormant bermuda just not after greenup. You also could try simazine for you winter weeds.

    Definately “Johnson Grass” you see it in the pastures in Georgia. Farmers typically treat it with a controlled herbicide that kills “woody” grasses. Another common method to control it is to “paint” Round Up on the grass which will kill it and not the grass ar around it. When I talk about “paint” farmers will soak cloth in round up and drag the cloth over the “Johnson Grass” which is typically taller than the desired grass growing. This method transfers the Round Up to the “Johnson Grass” killing it and none of the other grasses.

    Bayer makes a pretty good hose-end weed killer, but, in a hurry, I purchased the one in the blue bottle and it killed my centipede and St. Augustine grass. In the fertilizer section of Lowes there is a “white bottle” specifically for killing weeds in a centipede and St. Augustine yard. I learned how to read the lable that day instead of just looking at the weed pictures.
