Quack Grass

Last year my husband tilled our yard and put hybrid bermuda grass seeds. Our lawn looks wonderful but our neighbors have nothing but quack grass which they rarely cut. Their seedlings blow into our yard and now. . . . you guessed it. . . . we have quack grass. Is there anyway to put some kind of barrier between our lawn and theirs?

Unfortunately, there may be little you can do to prevent seeds from blowing your way, other than politely asking your neighbor to mow more often (which depending on your relationship, may not be feasible), you may need to focus on control methods instead. While crack grass can be hard to control, it can be done. Here is more information:

Zoysia Grass With Bermuda Tiff Grass

I have Bermuda Tiff grass and have some areas where the Bermuda is not doing well due to the shade of trees. I am thinking of planting Zoysia grass in the areas. How will the two grasses do together? I use a reel mower on the Bermuda. Can I use the reel mower on the Zoysia?

You can use a reel mower on zoysia. Most likely, the zoysia will push out the bermuda grass in the areas where it is planted. It is pretty aggressive, but it would take it quite some time before it took over the whole lawn.

Bermuda Grass

I live in¬†southern California, the¬†high desert. Bermuda grass was introduced by accident. Is Roundup my only option? I’m so afraid of hurting plants I want to keep.

In addition to using Round-up, I would recommend pouring boiling water on the areas where the bermuda grass is growing. But be careful, as boiling water will kill whatever it comes in contact with just as the Round-up will.

Grub Worms

It’s June and I have lots of brown (dead) spots in my Bermuda lawn indicating that I have grubworms. I know the recommendations are for treatment in the fall, but I would like to treat them now–if it will be effective. Please tell me what I should do?

Get Rid of Palm Tree Seedlings in Yard

My neighbor’s palm tree drops palm tree seeds in my yard. This year, several hundred palm seedlings have sprouted in my Bermuda grass yard. I have tried ‘kills weeds not grass’ to no avail. Short of digging up every one, is there another option?

Zoysia vs. Bermuda

I live in northwest Arkansas. Bermuda grass is everywhere and I don’t care for it. If I can establish a good area of zoysia, will it invade the bermuda or will the bermuda take over the zoysia?

Most likely, the Zoysia will push out the Bermuda grass in the areas where it is planted. It is pretty aggressive, but it would take it quite some time before it took over the whole lawn.
