Alma from El Paso, Tx writes,

Is it safe to use Sedgehammer directly around the base of established trees in the lawn?

I have a lawn that is almost completely nutgrass. I have mature mulberry and ash tress in the lawn as well. I don't want to kill my trees but the nutgrass has completely taken over. Is it safe to spray Sedgehammer directly over the lawn that covers the roots of my trees? Thank you for such an informative website!!!


Sedgehammer may be applied to nutsedge that is at the base of a tree without harming the tree as long as you do not spray over top the tree as a broadcast. Try to be careful of overspray that may get on the tree as the label states that sprays directed over-the-top of trees may lead to damage of the tree.
