Palm Type Grassy Weed?
I keep pulling a good size area of this type of vegetation out of my backyard at my townhome. I do not know what it is or how to stop from coming back. Any help you can give me would be appreciated. Thank you very much.
This is goosegrass. This is a common weed. Here is what you need to know: https://extension.umd.edu/hgic/topics/goosegrass
Mowing short leads to a slew of lawn problems. Very important.
Your lawns looks very thin. Fall is the best time to seed. Here is how: https://extension.umd.edu/hgic/lawns/lawn-renovation
The first link is very helpful.
Thank you Ellen, as I appreciate the reply. I did see some possible weeds on line, as Rye and Goose Grass came up, but I wanted to be sure. I do have my mower at 3 inches of height, and yes, this area is thinned out, as I pulled alot of this Goose grass out. I think I got all of it but I will read the links you gave me. I do plan on reseeding in the fall. The other weed I can not seem to stop growing is Clover and Oxalis as I have tried everything on those weeds. Again, thank you so much for the help and reply.
I will make a donation to the MD Extension.

Thank you again for the help. I will do a donation this evening. Mike.
I appreciate the help and the service, it needs to be supported by those who use it.
Again thank you for the help again. I did make a donation for your help, so that is appreciated.
https://www.solutionsstores.com/goosegrass-control I did find something for Goosegrass, but I do know that clover and Oxalis is very hard to stop in growth. I did try to keep pulling it out since the beginning of the year, but its winning the battle. I did learn that Nitrogen in the soil is key in stopping it, but not having a success in finding how to add Nitrogen to the soil or PH. I
think it might be best to hire someone to reseed this lawn, as its not big, 22 feet by 60 feet I believe and just start all over in the fall. Thanks again. Go Terps. Mike
