Top picture-thin blade stuff is green kyllinga and the wide blade stuff is doveweed. Bottom picture is chamberbitter. Celsius will kill all 3.

re: Weed ID & Solutions
I just saw in another thread that you said these are problematic. I got that Roundup for Lawns and it says Doveweed and Chamberbitter on the label. I’ll try it and if it doesn’t work I’ll buy some Celsius.

re: Weed ID & Solutions
I almost wouldn’t mind my whole yard being doveweed. That stuff is soft. Although I’m sure it would create some issues.

I suggest you not to be in any hurry. This will probably take a full season of spraying. You more than likely will max out your MSM turf so look to other products as well.

re: Weed ID & Solutions
I got a big patch of Virginia buttonweed..I opted to hit it with glyphosate last weekend
My plan was to dig it up once it’s dead and level the yard some right there . Then lay sod if it’s not to late. If it is to late I will just continue to keep that area weed free till next spring.
I have st aug. In Lafayette.

re: Weed ID & Solutions
I began my VBW crusade in the spring of this year. I sprayed with a cocktail recommended by knowledgeable members on this forum. I sprayed in summer using MSM and spreader sticker. I can tell the process is working. Killing/controlling VBW is indeed a process.

It won’t be too late to lay sod. Just expect the VBW to return in that area. If you spray it when it first emerges it’s much easier to control so learn to ID it when it’s young - plenty photos on the web. Seems like it was mid-April/early May this past year in BR when I first noticed emerging in a couple small spots in my yard.
