I've got a lot of patches of Nimblewill (I believe that is the correct common name).

Is there any strategy to keeping this grass in check and reducing it? It's hard to see it during the spring to dig it out and replant. Will aeration of the lawn help?

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

Dear Noki,

Thank you very much for your inquiry. Nimblewill is normally associated with under fertilized lawns. In other words, if you get the turf grasses growing, they will out compete the nimblewill. There is a new product on the market that has nimblewill control on the label, mesotrione. It is sold as Tenacity. I am not sure of its availability just yet, but it should be available in 2009 if not now.

The other plant that this gets confused with is creeping bentgrass, the same grass used for golf course putting greens. The mesotrione will get the bentgrass as well.

Again, thanks for the question and let me know if you have more.
