Can you tell me what the name of this weed is and how to get rid of it? I have a new bermuda lawn, sodded this January. I've been mowing weekly at the lowest setting, but this weed just pops right back up and seems to be spreading.

Here's a picture:

And here's a close-up:

Thanks,

I had it in my lawn too. I pulled it all out by hand.

I don't remember the name.

If you don't want to pull it out you can try 10% vinegar with 1 tbs of real soap and 1 tbs of orange oil. That makes a non-selective herbicide.

Looks like dallis grass - very common around here. Best removal is to just dig it up. I've found the vnegar burns it but doesnt kill it permanently. Every time it rains in my yard - weeds will die because that is the best time to pull weeds up and get the roots.

Yep it looks just like dallis grass. I have more then I want in my yard as well. It seems to grow on air. It doesn't need water to grow. I can cut my lawn and two days later it has grown at least 6 inches with no rain. Maybe my burmuda will strangle it as it spreads. The only way I have found to get rid of it is pull it out. You must get the root as well. It sure is a tough weed.
