Grassy Weed Control

Weeds are unpopular, but they spread quickly. So, as soon as they appear, get rid of them.

The following are the four most frequent grassy and broadleaf weeds in Atlanta-area lawns:

  • Nutsedge
  • Clumps of fescue in non-fescue lawns
  • Wild Violets 
  • Virginia Buttonweed 

Each of these requires a unique approach. If you have weeds, don’t hesitate to contact us so we can identify them and offer a treatment plan.

A post-emergent herbicide is used to tackle more tough perennial weeds that cannot be controlled with the silver plan’s pre-emergent sprays.


Nutsedge is a grassy perennial weed that may grow in any lawn but is most commonly found on Bermuda lawns. It is a warm-season species that is most active from April through September.

What can we do about it?

Three applications of a solution designed expressly for the problem allow us to manage nutsedge.

Fescue Clumps:

Fescue is cool-season grass that grows in huge bright-green patches or lumps. It must be controlled as a fast-growing intruder because it might interfere with the smooth, even quality of a Bermuda or Zoysia lawn.

What we can do to stop it?

Three applications of a solution designed specifically for the condition can be used to control these undesirable clumps.

Wild Violets:

Though lovely in the spring, these perennials can quickly become stubborn, fast-spreading weeds. Colonies typically begin in the shade and move to sunnier locations. You can control them by digging them up and removing the entire root with a sharp knife, severing the deepest and most persistent roots.

What we can do to stop them?

We can control wild violets with three applications of a product designed specifically for wild violets.

Virginia Buttonweed:

One of the most difficult broadleaf weeds to eradicate is this deep-rooted perennial. It thrives in moist-to-wet environments from spring to summer.

What can we do about it?

With three applications of a solution designed specifically for buttonweed, we can control this tenacious broadleaf weed.
