Any guesses on this? Is this a weed or a grass? Or are both pictures something different?
I think I’ve got the same thing. I hit it and some spurge last week with some bayer lawn and crabgrass last week. Spurge is almost all dead and it seems like this stuff has multiplied. Just wait or is there something else I should be using.

Did you ever find out what this was? I have the same thing and I'm thinking it is crabgrass but before I put down the Celsius that I have, I wanted to find out.
I took a bag of it to a local landscaping supply and the owner seemed really knowledgeable. He confirmed it was crabgrass. I just sprayed a dose of Blindside today so hopefully that handles it. If it doesn’t suppress it enough I have some quinclorac to hit it again next week.

Does anyone know what these beauties are? This is not my lawn, but these weeds are at the edge of my lawn and my neighbors. Every year something new pops up in his lawn and he refuses to spray for weeds so this is the time of year when I get ready to go to war with his invading army. I’m pretty sure the tall thin ones are nutsedge but I don’t know what those other demonic plants are.

The grass is not greener on the other side.

Happy 4th all. This stuff grows in isolated sprigs in one corner of the bermuda lawn, and up the driveway. The last detail makes me think it's some kind of ground cover like liriope, but as far as I know it doesn't grow in clumps like liriope. Past couple of weeks it's been poking its head out to see if the coast is clear. I can spend hours tweezing it out when it gets going, so I'm anxious not to repeat that experience again this year. Just sprayed Negate and Isoxaben in the past week. But if I need something else, I'll do that too. Thanks.

Kind of looks like Bahia.
I may not have the best lawn and I may not have a clue what I’m doing but that’s pretty much all I have to say.

I couldn’t find a better place to ask this. Can I mix Celsius and sedgehammer together in my backpack sprayer? And if so could someone give me rates of both with water? I am so frustrated with weeds right now. Thanks. BTW Virginia button weed is my biggest culprit but I have some image for it.
Grass is my addiction. Luckily it’s legal grass :bandit:

Yes you can mix them.

Using 1gal water per 1000sqft

Celsius has 3 rates on the label.
Low: 1.6g
Med: 2.4g
High: 3.2g

Choose rate per gal water based on your target weeds from the label.

If using the packets of sedge hammer you will add 1 packet per gal water.

If using the bottled sedge hammer use 0.9g and 2 tsp NIS per gal water.

Celsius high rate with NIS can injure/yellow turf at temps over 85°F.

Can anyone help my identify what’s growing in my Bermuda grass? I hope it’s just crabgrass that I can kill off/prevent next season

Have this growing in an area on my property line that gets morning shade from the neighbor's oak tree. I haven't sprayed anything in this area yet, and there has been no grass growing here in decades. The surrounding grass doesn't seem to want to spread through this stuff. It stays low to the ground, never reaching mower blades.

@FlaDave && @TN Hawkeye Thanks for the replies. I think Tenacity is in my immediate future. Whatever that thing is, it is continuing to sprout daily despite the Negate and Isoxaben application.

It may be in the process of dying. MSM will kill it if not too hot in your area or Celsius

Oxalis. Some varieties of it do have leaves that turn purple.

Crap. I think you’re right. Is there anything selective for it?
