  1. Re: Yet another what's this ugly/different grass thread!

    You mean diagnosis by treatment? Or the appearance of success?
  2. So far, so good.

    Tricyclopyr is indeed selectively killing the abnormal grass. Hope the bluegrass grows back into these areas.
  3. Re: If it's Bermuda Grass - - - - maybe this

    Sprayed both lawns with triclopyr.... 3 tsps./gallon over 1,000 sq. ft.

    Excellent informative response.
  14. Re: What's the name and way to eradicate the lighter color broader grass?

    Hmmmm. Think I'll just dig up the areas, add new soil, and put down seed.
  15. Re: What's the name and way to eradicate the lighter color broader grass?

    Thanks so much. RoundUp kills all grass, correct? Which one is the best to use and will it actually selectively kill this ryegrass and not the bluegrass?
  16. Re: What's the name and way to eradicate the lighter color broader grass?

    Note the unusual structure of the plucked grass.
  17. What's the name and way to eradicate the lighter color broader grass?

    Thank you. Decided to get the entire top with cord, as suggested by Robert of Honda. It was about $11 (eleven U.S. dollars) and delivered in just two days. Unbelievable value for an OEM part(s).

    Thank you Robert of Honda

    Darn. The grass mowed uneven, hence this request. I put the larger bladder closer to the engine. I reversed the blades again. Thank you, Robert. You are fantastic. Post of the Year Award.

    I really like the Whizz by Ortho.

    Have tried several hand spreaders and they sucked. One issue is that the internal mechanism slips and grinds, without putting out product. Or product leaks out, or one has to concentrate on turning...

    Yes, but I don't know of anyone allergic to them, and he certainly appears normal. No sneezing, congestion, wheezing, skin rash, etc.

    Yes, they are highly antigenic, but don't bother anyone in the area except him. I did see a reference on stopping them from flowering, but cannot locate it now.
