How can I get rid of Shiver Grass?

It is taking over my lawn

Lawns • Weeds

Hi Brian,

Shivery grass (Briza minor) can only be controlled by either hand weeding or with a product containing glyphosate such as Zero Weedspray. This is a non-selective herbicide which will also kill your lawn if accidently sprayed onto it. There is also winter grass (Poa annua) flowering at present however it is too late to spray this weed. Winter grass is sprayed when the weed is very small in early winter and Yates Winter Grass Killer is used.
