Cynadon Couch Grass in Zoysia Bed

The beginning of 2010 saw the Friends group tackle the the Cynadon invasion of the Zoysia Bed. The removal of this highly invasive weed will be our primary focus I hope for the forseeable future as we work to flank and hold back further incursions of this weed which spreads by runners and seeds.

We had noticed the presence of Cynadon a few years back but did little about it. It wasn't until we had a workshop with Biosis research consultant Jeff Yugovic in Nov 2010 that we turned our focus to the weed invasion. One of his main points was that we need to assist the vegetation that is already in situ rather trying to plant new veg of the top of it and around it.
