How to Identify and Treat Dallisgrass
Dallisgrass is one of the most troublesome weeds in the Southeast. It forms distinct clumps in mowed lawns and produces tall, unsightly seed stalks. A combination of hand-pulling and selective herbicides is the best way to control Dallisgrass.
Aeration and Overseeding
Aeration pulls out small plugs of soil to break up compaction and allows vital air, water and nutrients to travel down to the roots. Overseeding fills in bare or thinning spots left behind by the stress of summer heat. Prepare your yard by mowing and watering the night before aeration and overseeding.
