Hi Ronald,

Would you please tell me the name of this weed? I'm getting some in my garden. I think it's bad weed. What can I use to get rid of it?

Thanks in advance,

Rick

Answer
I cannot identify it positively; but it is a true grass and if it is in your garden, I imagine that it is among desirable broad leaf plants.
You can use Roundup™ as a carefully directed spray. In your case you may find it more convenient to dab it on with a sponge.
You can also use Fusillade™ but please follow the dilution rate meticulously.
