Controlling nutsedge in my lawn?
My lawn has become infested with yellow nutsedge. My husband and I have tried Sedgehammer and Image with little to no results.
After lots of reading, I would like to try an organic method, suger, to increase the microbes and starve out the weeds while keeping the desired lawn (bermudagrass) in place.
While we knew it would probably do nothing, we tried one last attempt with Image two weeks ago. If I try using sugar tomorrow, will it be too soon? I read that chemicals will kill the microbes that sugar feeds.
I know the chemical takes several weeks inside the root sysem to fully kill a weed, but how long does it stay alive in the soil?
Sugar will do nothing for weeds. Nutsedge is one of the most difficult to eliminate too. It took two years for me to get rid of it in my lawn in Ca. I used roundup with a foam paint applicator and carefully brushed the leaves of each one.
