I have several large patches of Pennsylvania smartweed and nutsedge. They are taking over my yard. I reseeded a large area, but would like to rejuvenate the remaining grass. How can I win against these two stubborn weeds?
I am not sure exactly what they are but I googled them and one ag site said to use a pre emergent. The only one that I can think of is corn gluten. I have never used it ,(yet ) but you could give it a try. Let us know how it works. The other thing is to use Paul Wheaton's advice on weeds.Mow high, water infrequent, and fertilize ( no chemicals please ) Good luck !

Thanks for your advice. I was feeling rather isolated for resisting the commercial approach to weed control. This is really an informative site.
