The tips & reviews are accurate. Instructions said apply to 2" or less leaves,,, I applied to 7-8". Maybe that's why I need another application.
The leaves turned brown in most of the areas that I sprayed in rather short order. The surrounding grass is still alive (yeah). Now 5 days later, the sedge that didn't die is taller and stronger than ever,,, I will blast it again. I expect it will kill the remaining sedge.
Lesson here is to buy more than 1 bottle. Buy many....
I don't know if the seed sacs below surface are killed and only time will tell, but so far most of the sedge is brown and wilted.
So a second application is in the works. If I think about it, I will return and provide further updates.
Prior to this,,, plucking was our only success. A little neglect and the area becomes over run. The spray is the only stuff that works so far.
The game is on and the score is Tom 7 Sedge 3. Application #2 coming and that should declare me the sedge war winner. Cross fingers.
Works beautifully, my kyllinga died after three days... the only drawback is, you need multiple bottles. One bottle is enough to treat a small patch of nutsedge/kyllinga.
Hard to find & cheapest around. Great for destroying nutgrass/nutsedge. Doesn't kill good grass around it when sprayed.
As advertised. Sedgegrass died and St Augustine is taking over again. Buy multiple bottles.
I bought this stuff because I have had problems with Nutsedge in my Tall Fescue Lawn. I live in Raleigh NC and have had a time trying to find a product that would not hurt the lawn. This stuff works like it says. Within 2 days, I saw all of the Nutsedge in my lawn start to turn brown and wilt! The product works great and I would recommend it to anyone. My only suggestion is that the product needs to be offered in larger quantities with a pump spray option. Squeezing this small bottle can make your wrist tired. Additionally, paying almost $7 for such a small bottle seems a bit steep. This stuff is all over the lawn and I had to buy multiple bottles of this stuff. Overall, I was very pleased with its performance.
I have a lawn service, but it does not kill nutsedge. I found this stuff by chance and used it with perfect results. Taller and more mature nutsedge will need a couple applications to finally kill it so make sure you have at least 4-5 bottles on hand. I buy it by the the case of 6 from Walmart. It doesn't hurt the grass and two or three applications kill it entirely. Like someone else said, too bad they didn't sell it in larger bottles or a refill type gallon container. It is back-breaking to keep bending over to make sure you get it all and one bottle doesn't go far. This stuff definitely works though.
So for 3 years I had the lawn that looked like it grew in spots overnight after a cutting. My mailman said I had nutgrass. So I research it and its not grass but a weed.....this season I was sick looking at the high grass. I did online research and found Ortho Nutsedge. I tried it in 3 areas and waited .....BOOM!!! the stuff turned brown by the 3rd day and after 3 weeks it never grew back. I purchased a few more bottles to finish the property. I had to treat 5/8 of an acre and the spray with hose system was great!! Easy to use and it did not kill my real grass. It killed off some other weeds too -BONUS!!!
Yes by this and stop lookin at your tall green Nut Grass.
I had huge issues with nutsedge growing like crazy on my fescue. I tried pulling them up one by one every day and they kept coming and coming. I did not even know there was a product to treat it until somebody recommended this one to me. I was hesitant since other Otho products had not worked. This thing works like magic. In a couple of days the nutsedge turned yellow and then died. My fescue grass was intact! I just wish it was a little bit cheaper.
Only thing I've found that works on Creeping Charley.
I have tried lots of different weed killers that did absolutely nothing to the spreading nutsledge patch I have in my lawn. I'd never seen this week before last summer. My regular Scott's Weed & Feed treatment worked on everything else. Applied Halts twice very early this year and again a couple of moths later. I live in a warmer climate and of course the winter was very mild this year. It was still there when my bermuda started to come out of dormancy, so I tried this product. It killed the nutsledge dead! Just wish I could buy it in "mixable" form on some other spots with just a small infestation where I see just 4 of 5 of the blades coming up fast! I highly recommend this product.
This product works really good in my lawn on all the grassy weeds, like nutgrass. After applying, it takes about 2 or 3 days for the weed to start dying and then in about 5-7 days, it's completely dead. It really would be wonderful if this product were bigger sizes, like in the 1 gal. or 1.33 gal.; like maybe with the pull n. spray. But overall, I'm very pleased with this product.
Have never been able to kill the nutsedge and it was getting thick in spots. Finally bought a bottle of this and used it 3 days ago on a small test are. The things are already dying. So far it doesn't apprear to have hurt the grass around it. Wish I could get a bigger bottle or a concentrate of this exact product.
It killed ALL the nutsedge in my yard. My only problem is the packaging. I had to buy 8 bottles and hand pump alot to get the job done. I wish it was available in a large container with a auto bump or something like that. Even so, it is the only nutsedge product I have ever had work. It gets a thumbs up from me!
For years I sat in the yard pulling nutsedge only to find out last year and my wife's Master Gardner meeting that pulling it encouraged more plants. When I saw the bottle Nutsedge Killer I doubted the claim but it beat pulling so I tried it. Dead in a week or so without harming the lawn. This and the spray crab grass killer should get awards for the best new products on the market.
I have struggled with Yellow Nutsedge in my lawn for over 5 years. Professional lawn treatment services could control it, but when I switched to taking care of my lawn all by myself, this weed became established in my lawn and got worse with each year. A few years ago I tried a herbicide containing methanearsonate, but it yellowed my yard considerably for a few weeks, and the nutsedge came back. Two years ago I paid TruGreen for a single application to treat it, but the nutsedge came back.
I bought a bottle of Ortho Nutsedge Killer at WalMart last year and used it on my worst patch of nutgrass. It worked great, killing the nutgrass, and not damaging the lawn. I went back for more and it was sold out for the year. This year I bought 8 bottles, and have used 5 of them so far. During mid summer, I have to walk the yard a couple of times a week with a bottle, spraying all the nutsedges I see, but it then kills them.
This product kills nutsedge as advertised, but it is sold only in a small pump bottle which creates two problems. First, the small spray bottle requires me to bend ever further over to the ground as the level of the fluid decreases in the pump bottle in order to keep feeding fluid to the sprayer. A solution is to combine remaining amounts of fluid from bottles into a single bottle that is kept full, but this is hardly an optimal solution. Second, by the time I discovered this product, the infestation was widespread, so it requires tedious application using numerous small spray bottles to cover the several large areas of infestation and widely separated emerging clumps of nutsedge. It would be great if this product could be made available as a concentrate suitable for a hose-end sprayer or tank sprayer, but Scott indicated to me last year that they have no plans to market the product other than in the small spray bottles. Application problems aside, this is a great product that takes care of nutsedge.
For 3 yrs now my neighbor and i have had this weed in our lawns. My lawn is like a golf course and i would always pull this weed out manually. After doing research on Nut Grass and seeing whats available to use i came across this product by Ortho. After reading the reviews of this product i tried it this month. In just 2 days the nut grass turned yellow and is dying out. I wish you could get this product in a larger bottle say 64 ozs. so you could use a pump sprayer to cover your entire lawn. I would highly recommend this product to any one, it works great.
I have st augustine grass and it was being choked out severely by nutsedge..I bought the nozzle type hose attachment sprayer and covered my lawn with the product...well it started to work in a couple days and it kept working for a few more weeks it killed most of it but if you are heavily infested with sedgegrass You must be prepared for dead looking grass around for a while if you spray too late in the season.as the nutsedge dies off it leave spaces where theres no grass. ..so spray in the summer before the fall growth spurt when it gets cooler.. as now I have to wait until spring for my lawn to thicken up where the nutsedge was thick, and Im now seeing clovers filling in the areas before the grass can...but at least the nutsedge is gone...it defiantly works!
I am planning on doing it again but this time right before my grass has a growing season like early spring...
The nutsedge in my lawn turned brown on day two after the application with no visible effects on my tall fescue. The hose end sprayer makes it very easy to apply. I treated a 1000 sq ft area, so I only used 6 ounces of this product. This product is 28 times more concentrated than the the ready-to-spray product (1.40% vs. 0.05%).
Savings hint: mix one ounce of this product with 28 ounces of water to make a ready-to-spray solution of 0.05%.
This product is easy to use. Was able to spray weedy areas for about 5000 to 6000 square feet with one 32 oz container connected to garden hose. Have had trouble killing Yellow Woodsorrel (also called Oxalis) in the past, and with this product in 2 days it was brown and dying. Temperatures were around 75 F when applied, and my lawn was well watered from rains the week before use. The lawn looks great - no yellowing or other damage. I anticipate doing one more application later this fall to deal with a few areas missed. The Nutsedge is yellowing, but as of this review it is too early to tell if it will be completely dead.
