I fertilized in March and May. Nothing during the summer. I am getting ready to renovate by de-thatching, seeding and organic fertilizing. I do have some low spots in the lawn which I will fill in this fall. As for watering, we had the wettest August on record in DE so it doesn't surprise me then, about what you said about barnyard grass liking moisture.
Any other thoughts about starving the barnyard grass?
Much thanks.

Thank you, Paul. Organically what is the best way to eliminate or control barnyard grass?
I believe it is an annual grass so I can keep cutting it short so it will not go to seed. If I dig it out, hopefully I can get to the roots. If I do not get to the roots will it just die and not come back next year?

This year I have a lot of barnyard grass in my lawn. Is there a selective herbicide that will kill it? I know roundup will get it, but it will also get my lawn grass.
thanks for any help

    What someone called 'nutgrass', it grows faster than the good grass, is actually called nutsedge (not really a grass).  It does no good to pull it up because you will never get the tubules out of the ground. You need to use a specific herbicide for nutsedge. There is a product called Sedgehammer that will do it. However, there are other products as well.
    Good luck.
