The Q&A Archives: weeds

Question: We recently started a exiscape plan for our lawn. We had all the sod removed, laid down weed control black landscaping fabric and then 2 inches of pea gravel over that. There is one weed which I was told is nutsedge. It keeps coming back horribly! The only product that supposedly kills it will also kill all plants and prevent me from planting others for a year.
