The Q&A Archives: Bent lawn

Question: How do I keep bent lawn from infesting and taking over my lawn. I would like to remove it completely, without using products like Roundup, and killing everything, and then re-seeding.

Answer: Rick,

I am not sure what you are referring to by the term "bent lawn". I suppose you meant bentgrass, a turf species used in some part of the country on golf courses but not too commonly on home lawns. Unfortunately I am not aware of any products to kill bentgrass but not other turf species. You might try contacting your county Extension office to see if they have any other suggestions for you.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
