Terry,

I am sorry for this delayed reply to your gardening question. The spring rush has brought a deluge of questions and we are working hard to catch up!

You have a couple of options. The weed popper may work okay but I think you'll have to try one on the Dallis grass to know for sure. It's root system and the fact that it is in a lawn make it a little more of a challenge. You can water the lawn or work after a rain when hand pulling or using a weed tool of some type would work easier or better. If you are not able to find a weed popper you might want to try some type of weeding fork or other hand tool designed for removing weeds. I have also dabbed glyphosate (Roundup is one brand) on weeds in my lawn taking care not to get it on the turf for fairly effective results.

Thanks for the question. Best wishes for a wonderful gardening season. Please stop in again soon!
