John writes,

I also have bare soil (with nutsedge) throughout. I plan to plant a lawn in about 8 months to a year....

Because I have no plants, I thought about using vegetation killer, but do not want to damage the soil. What are my options? This stuff is spreading fast!


If you only have bare soil with sedge growing from it, then you should just use a glyphosate product which will kill anything it touches basically.  Sedgehammer is great for sedge, but is meant for use when nutsedge is in grass that you don't want to kill.  A professional glyphosate will kill the nutsedge much quicker.  Also it does not stay in the soil that long, so you can re-seed just weeks after application.  Vegetation killers and soil sterilants are meant to not let anything grow in that area for a long time.  So if you plan on seeding eventually then you should not use a vegetation killer product.
