Nutsedge in New Sod
Is this nutsedge in our new sod? This is a picture of our front lawn which has a ton of it. The back yard only had it in a small area so I went around and removed it by hand. I don't know much about nutsedge...how to distinguish between the two types, how damaging it is, how to prevent it, how to eradicate it once you have it....
It is thin light green strands that grow much taller than the rest of the grass. The soil was pretty wet so it came out easily, but I didn't see any with a little nut type seed attached.
If it is indeed nutsedge, how worried should I be? Will it take over the lawn? How do I remove it? How do I prevent getting more in the future?
