quackgrass

My lawn never looked so bad. This year the quack grass is everywhere. Is there any way of killing it without killing the good grass?

Never had quackgrass but we have an undesirable grass here that we have to kill with RoundUp - there's nothing we've been able to find which kills it without also killing the desired grass. Our work-around for this is to put the RoundUp in a cup and use a small brush to 'paint' the leaves of the grass we want gone so the good stuff is unaffected.

I read of a way to apply Roundup to weeds in the lawn. Wear a rubber glove, then wear a cloth glove over it. Bunch and hold the weed in one hand. Dip fingers of other hand into a cup of Roundup and wipe on the weed. May be a little quicker and a little more controlled that using a paintbrush.

Yeah, I like that idea, I'll have to try it.
