How to treat Dallisgrass

We wanted to start our weed series off with Dallisgrass.  Dallisgrass is one of the most common weed you will find in your yard. It’s a very invasive weed and one of the reasons it is so invasive is because it has a very deep root system. Round up is one of the chemicals that you can use to attack it.  You will need to spray the Round Up on the crown of the Dallisgrass, the very center where all the blades of grass come out of.  It will probably take about 2 or 3 treatments before you see results. Do take note that spraying with Round Up will leave a bald spot in your yard.  You can also dig around the Dallisgrass and pull the entire weed out.  Obviously if your yard is covered in Dallisgrass a spray would be your best option but if you have a few growing sporadically around your yard, digging up the weed could be your best plan of action to get rid of it quicker.  We recommend adding some dirt or sod to refill any holes. Pre-emergents are still important when it comes to the seed heads. The seed heads is what allows the weed to spread. So applying a pre-emergent will help prevent the new ones from growing.  If you have an questions, please let us know.  We look forward to hearing from you.
