In June I had a new back yard seeded as well as a strip of my front lawn that previously had little trees/shrubs. At first, nice looking grass came up, but beginning a couple weeks later, these (pictured) weeds started coming up, only in the newly seeded areas. They quickly took over. I had the guy completely renovate all those areas 4 weeks ago, and I got nice grass again, but these suckers are back this weekend, I must’ve picked up close to 100.

    In Georgia wheat straw sprouts in lawns can persist through the spring. With our warming temps and mowing it will usually die back during the summer months. In cooler climates it may be more persistent.

    Thanks for the input guys! Is it worth spraying them with Roundup on the chance that they are something else that could take over my lawn?

    Wheat straw grass is also what I thought. Should die off over the winter I think.

    Did you use straw mulch? Looks like wheat straw sprouts.
