How to Identify Nimblewill & When It Appears in Your Yard
An important thing to remember about nimblewill is that it is actually a type of grass, but in our area of Pennsylvania, it is considered an invasive weed that needs to be removed. To figure out if your lawn has nimbleweed, here are a few ways to identify this pesky plant:
- Check for brown patches in your lawn from early fall to late spring. Since nimblewill is a warm-season grass, it goes dormant during cooler weather.
- It can sometimes be confused with bentgrass, a cool-season grass, but bentgrass will stay green during this time.
- You can easily pull nimblewill out of the lawn to see its fibrous root structure.
- The leaves are about 1-2 inches in length and are a blue-green color.
Since nimblewill is a warm-season grass, it will begin appearing and actively growing in your yard from late spring through the summer.
Ways to Remove Nimblewill from Your Lawn
It is not an easy task to remove nimblewill. Since it is a type of grass, it will not quickly die off when sprayed with a traditional herbicide. The seeds and other parts of the plant can also easily spread with mowing and aeration services, which is why we do not advise you try to remove it all by pulling it out of the ground.
According to Penn State, the best way to remove nimblewill is by applying a relatively new product called Tenacity. This product will help get nimblewill out of your cool-season grass, but does require multiple treatments. It turns the plant white, and can also turn your grass white as well. Do not be alarmed, however, if that does happen. It is a side effect of the product, but the discoloration will grow out in time.
To avoid issues with nimblewill in the future, it is recommended to enroll in a lawn care program that will strengthen and nourish your cool-season grass, as well as checking the pH of your soil and even reducing shade in the area as nimblewill loves shade.
