Many Questions About Nutsedge (Nutgrass)

July 13, 2018

Many of you are searching about “that bright green grassy weed that grows taller than your good grass” when you visit my blog. This weed is called Nutsedge or Nutgrass. It grows in groups as it spreads from underground roots and nut-like bulbs.


If you try to pull it, Nutsedge quickly grows back from the bulb-like roots that are left behind in the soil.

Ortho has a spray to kill tough lawn weeds like Nutsedge, Wild Onion, Wild Violet, Ground Ivy, and about 50 others including Dandelion and Clover without harming your good grass. Ortho Nutsedge Killer for Lawns can be used on most any kind of lawn.
Ortho Nutsedge Killer for Lawns comes in two kinds of sprays. If you only have a small patch of weeds you are trying to kill, there is a ready to spray squeeze trigger bottle (click here to check it out). If you have a big area with lots of lawn weeds it comes in a spray bottle that attaches to the end of your hose (click here to check it out).

It is best to spray weeds when they are actively growing. If your lawn is stressed from drought and weeds are not growing very much, wait to spray when your lawn is getting regular rain or irrigation. Also, you do not need to drown your weeds with spray to kill them. Just wet the leaves and they will eventually die.
