An aggressive type of weed most commonly found in lawns, vegetable, and flower gardens. Nutsedge is distinguished between other growing grasses by their stems which are triangular or V-shaped with hollow round grass stems. It prefers wet soil and does not grow in shade. Once rooted, it is hard to remove, as the roots produce nutlets that can remain in the soil when the plant and roots have been pulled. With proper lawn and yard care, these types of weeds can be eradicated.
