Sugar also gives the grass extra vigor.

My next door neighbor applies sugar to her yard about two weeks before she fertilizes the lawn in the Spring and about two weeks after the winter application in the fall.

I don't remember ever seeing nut-grass in her lawn. Mine comes sneaking in from my other next-door neighbor who never fertilizes or does anything to maintain it. He cuts it when it gets about 10 inches tall. I also put dandelion control down three feet into his yard so I only have to spot-treat it in mine.

It is a pain and we have to be careful how we kill it.

It spreads by seed as well as underground.

Thank you. Thats why I tried digging it out first. I still don't know how it got to the other parts of the yard.

I always go for the least toxic things first.

Nut grass is actually a sedge, which can be very difficult to get rid of.
I did some searches and here ar 3 sites I found that you may want to look at.

Is there any non chemical way I can git rid of this? We tried all last year to get rid of the nut grass by digging it up and throwing it away. It is still there and spreading to other parts of the yard where it never was before. I even did try round up on a few areas it didn't seem to work.
