Sedges (Cyperus spp.) and kyllingas (Kyllinga spp.) are unique lawn weeds in the home lawn that cannot be exactly classified as either a grass or a broadleaf. Yellow and purple nutsedge, and green and false green kyllinga are common weeds in the home lawn and some can also invade landscape beds and home vegetable gardens. It is often the competitive advantage of these plants in terms of high moisture and/or poor drainage in the area they infest that makes them difficult to control. This publication provides an overview of nutsedges and kyllingas as weeds in lawns and the options for control in the lawn.
