Poanna Grass/Annual Bluegrass.. Help!

Posted by cwidene DE (My Page) on

Last year I killed off all of my yard with round up, put in sprinklers and replanted my whole yard with Tall Fescue with a slit-seeder. Looks great!

However this spring I have a small area of Poanna Grass (about 5 sq feet) near my driveway. I put down a pre-emergent in Spring but want to know what to do about this grass so it will not spread further. Any insights on how to handle?

RE: Poanna Grass/Annual Bluegrass.. Help!

Poa is an annual and will die in the summer. If you don't want to wait, you can spray it with roundup and reseed. For such a small area, I would probably kill it now and patch.

Poa germinates in the fall, so it is just something that comes along with fall seeding. You can use a preemergent this fall so that it doesn't return next year. You probably will want to buy a bag now and store it because the box stores often only carry it in spring.
