HOW TO GET RID
IN YOUR YARD
WEKILLWEEDS.COMNutsedge is widely known for
being one of the most aggressive
types of weeds that you can find
in your Arizona lawn.
WEKILLWEEDS.COMAlthough it looks like grass,
the weed is actually a sedge.
You’ll often notice that nutsedge
is a brighter yellow-green color
compared to the grass in your yard.
WEKILLWEEDS.COMThis weed also grows faster than
grass, which is why you may see
it popping above the rest of your
lawn a few days after you mow.
Getting rid of nutsedge requires
a concentrated effort to attack
the plant after it breaks through
the surface of the soil.
Nutsedge Is Hard
WEKILLWEEDS.COMThese plants can send out seeds that
turn into brand new sprouts just like
WEKILLWEEDS.COMThey are also notoriously hard to get
rid of because of how they reproduce
Nutsedge plants grow long tubers
that are known as nutlets.
WEKILLWEEDS.COMA single plant can produce hundreds
to thousands of these little nutlets
that turn into new sprouts each year.
These nutlets can also form many
inches below the surface of the soil.
WEKILLWEEDS.COMThis makes them impossible to reach
with pre-emergent sprays.
Pulling the weeds doesn’t get rid
of them because those little nutlets
are usually left behind.
WEKILLWEEDS.COMYou’ll first want to take a look at your
lawn to see what might be making
it easier for the weeds to grow.
Nutsedge thrives in moist soil
and warm temperatures.
WEKILLWEEDS.COMYou’ll often find these plants popping
up near places where water drips
from leaky faucets.
You may also find them growing
in areas with poor drainage.
Reducing how much moisture builds
up in the soil can help to slow the
emergence of new plants.
WEKILLWEEDS.COMApply a Post-Emergent
WEKILLWEEDS.COMSince the nutlets exist deep
below the ground’s surface,
your best bet is to attack the
weeds after they emerge.
