Yellow Nutsedge


Due to the moist, cool spring and early summer, we are noticing more yellow nutsedge than in recent years. Yellow nutsedge, shown above, is a grass-like plant but is brighter green and has a different growth habit from normal grasses. It grows quickly in the hottest summer months when your normal turf growth slows the most. Yellow nutsedge can be tough to treat, but it can be controlled by a select herbicide. The treatment of yellow nutsedge is not included in our standard turf treatment programs, but if you feel that you have a problem, give us a call and we can make a treatment plan tailored to your personal turf needs.
