Grass/weed help


Can anyone tell me what grass/weed this is? My backyard was centipede grass until last winter when some sort of mold killed it off, this stuff has taken over.

It grows fast and is really thick. I'm in coastal southern Ga. I would like to kill this weed off and replant centipede.

Any advise?

When it almost seems as though you have more broadleaf weeds than grass in your yard, you can still get the lawn you want. For best results, try a weed & feed product that feeds and controls weeds at the same time.

Your lawn will be a stronger competitor with new weeds if you feed your lawn regularly and mow your grass a little bit taller.

Take a sample weed to your county extension agent for advise. Hopefully you can get help from someone a little more up scale than Hank Kimball was.

Something like Scott's turfbuilder?

I've never seen anything like it. I'm thinking it might be unique to the South.

Did a Google reverse image search but the only other photo that came up was yours.

If you post a smaller photo only of the butterfly type top of the plant, that could then be searched against the Google archives.

Thanks for the advise. I didn't realize you could search based on an image on Google. I'll have to Google how to do that.

I can just give you the steps, if I can post. I've tried twice and been cut off.

Here's the google image search URL:
https://images.google.com/

Right click on your photo, click copy from the drop down menu, and paste (or CTRL, V) it into the google search line. You won't see your photo, but it will be the URL for the photo.

attachments/f16/194425d1442091987t-grass-weed-help-1442091985441.jpg

Then you'll get any hits that match the photo. I got the photo you posted, so there's nothing else (presumably) that matches that photo.

E.g.: https://www.google.com/search?site=&....0.go6PAuPl-EM

If you post a photo that shows the top of the weed, then there might actually be a match if there's a photo of something similar in Google's library.

If you've searched recently though, you'll notice that Google's hits sometimes aren't even close to the original search parameters. But sometimes you get lucky. It's worth a try!

Hope this helps.
