Getting Rid of Nut Grass
Please help me get rid of the weedy nut grass in my lawn.
—Bennie Baldonado, Albuquerque, New Mexico
Nut grass is a type of sedge that's very difficult to control. Pulling it removes the parent plant, but leaves many small bulblets, called nuts.
Look for a product labeled for nut grass control. Bentazon, sold as Basagran or Manage, is effective on sedges and other lawn weeds. This product may be difficult to find, so try the Internet. Read and follow all directions.
