Good on St. Augustine grass
By Alan on 03/09/2018
Dismiss controls weeds pretty good in south Florida. It does hurt the grass too for a while, but if you water every couple days until it recovers it is fine. It doesn't kill all the weeds completely, but it keeps them from overtaking the grass.

Very Good Product

Works great on Nutsedge!

Nutsedge is gone and Good Grass Remains
By Steve on 09/08/2018
Based on the reviews I bought the product and it is worth every penny. The Nutsedge yellowed and wilted just like everyone said—24 hours. Stuff will be easy to remove with a thatch rake and seed over this fall after aeration. That bottle goes a long way and I recommend using the blue dye to ensure you don’t miss any when spot treating with a backpack sprayer. I am in Jersey Northwest on just over an acre and the stuff popped up everywhere this year. Highly recommend. Do My Own is outstanding !
Dismiss Turf Herbicide Review
By Paul on 09/23/2018
Made a spot application on my lawn in early August with a 1 gallon sprayer, Dismiss quickly killed much of the nutsedge. Made a second spot application in late August to finish off most of the remaining nutsedge. Recently made another quick spot application using a 1 quart sprayer to get a very few more nutsedge that appeared. Dismiss seems to kill the nutsedge with no impact to our lawn fescue, and it's necessary to keep after it with small spot applications. I'll continue applying it next year to keep nutsedge from getting out of control.

For years I had been using IMAGE to kill nutsedge. Never successful; just barely controlled its spread. Switched to DISMISS last year after reading reviews on DoMyOwn. Amazing results! Bermuda tolerates quite well and now I have to hunt just to find single residual stalk of nutsedge. Highly recommend it for spot treatment.
Great for Nutgrass/Nutsedge
By Daryl on 06/14/2019
I've had a Nutsedge problem for years. It grows at my mailbox, little areas of my lawn, and through my gravel path. Sedgehammer worked well on the baby Nutgrass, but it was not particularly effective on the mature Nutgrass. I mixed up 1 gallon of Dismiss and put it on baby and mature Nutgrass. The baby stuff was dead within 48-hrs, while the mature stuff began to yellow day by day. By 7-10 days it was completely dead--and that was one application. Nothing has come close to working this well. I also put some in my Fescue lawn, and it did not hurt the Fescue at all. I highly recommend this product.

Nothing better than watching nutsedge die off
By Joe on 08/04/2019
I was a little weary of using this product in the high heat of South Florida in mid July with a juvenile hybrid Bermuda that I had just seeded not more than 2 months earlier. The Bermuda didn’t seem to mind at all- perhaps it grew a little slower for a few weeks but no yellowing. The spurge died off where I sprayed (though I’ll need to do another treatment) and some other broadleaf weeds died off in the mix. All in all- for the value it’s a great product and will be a regular part of my post emergent treatment. Nutsedge is a strong weed and I have taken over a lawn that hadn’t been maintained properly for decades, some sedge patches were as densely matted as a paspalum putting green. One thing I do recommend is letting any post emergent spray sit as long as the label recommends prior to mowing— even longer. I went 9 days - as opposed to my daily mowing at .5625”
Kills nutsedge and goosegrass fast
By Greg on 08/07/2019
This product works as advertised. This is the only product you need for nutsedge and goosegrass which can't be killed by anything else in St Augustine grass. Just be careful! This will kill your lawn if your mix is too strong. Less is more for this powerful weed killer. I tried mixing various amounts to a 1 gallon sprayer. Even at 1/8 teaspoon per gallon of water it is still strong and effective at killing both nutsedge and goosegrass. Use with surfactant and spray a quick single mist over the target weed. It will kill or severely damage the weed within two days. Repeat about week later if necessary. Best for spot treatment. Avoid needlessly spraying entire lawn as this stuff is strong and may still show some damage to non-targeted lawn grass.
Destroyer of Sedges

I have tried other products to try and control my nutsedge, which has ruined my yard over the years, but this is the first product that actually works and fast. Granted, it will take several applications but that is mainly because it is hard to see every bit of it when applying but I finally have hope that my problem will finally be solved. Great price and service from DoMyOwn too!

I've been battling both purple and yellow nutsedge for years. I've tried multiple products, including sedgehammer, ortho and dismiss, all with limited results, and most of the success on yellow nutsedge. I rarely see the yellow any longer, but still annually battle the purple. I think my purple nut sedge must be some kind of mutant weed. The prescribed ratios weren't effective after 8 days, with very limited damage on the weeds, and some burning of turf, which I know is expected. this is my third season using dismiss. I know if i up the ratio or add a surfactant, I'll just burn the lawn, but that's almost what it feels like i need to do. Easily the most frustrating weed on earth. I want to take a flamethrower to it. is it possible my weeds have built up a tolerance to treatment? I feel like they actually like this stuff given how green they are, while being surrounded by burned grass. Lawn is fescue and bluegrass in New England.

Great Product, Quick Results
By Richard on 09/27/2019
My back lawn was damaged from the installation of a new septic system and full-siding installation on our house last year. The new grass seed failed (planted too late in the fall; and too late in the spring before excessive heat), so the lawn became fully of weeds -especially Green Kyllinga, Yellow Nutsedge, crabgrass, and a wide variety of other, non-grass greens. I compared reviews on Dismiss and a couple of other herbicides recommended by my lawn service; but chose Dismiss due to reports for killing both Kyllinga and Nutsedge. Boy, were those correct. Within 2 days, those specific weeds were well on the way to drying up, along with a few broadleaf weeds and most of the other small creepers. We left for a two-week vacation, so we expect the rest of the weeds to be gone on our return. Perfect timing to dethatch and reseed this fall. Great results.

Dismiss Turf Herbicide destroyed creeping beggarweed
By Edward on 11/08/2019
I live is south Florida, and the Saint Augustine and Floratam grasses are very sensitive to weed killers. Creeping Beggarweed is becoming a very big problem. Weed and Feed doesn't touch it and a new offering from Bayer seems like it would work, but it just gums up my spreaders (both kinds, rotary and drop). Dismiss kills the beggarweed and (so far at least) has not had a significant bad impact on the Saint Augustine and Floratam grasses. I just used it ten days ago and a large percentage of the Beggarweed is already gone. The growing season here seems to get longer each year and usually by this time of the year, the grass is dormant. That is no longer the case, and so I decided to try the Dismiss. I'm glad I did.
Dimiss Turf Herbicide falls short

By Dewayne on 04/24/2020
I grew up farming so we always controlled the weeds and fertilized the field grass type was mostly Bahia. Now I live in a subdivision with St Augustine Grass it is a very sensitive grass. Last year a weed popped up and we didn’t know what it was or what to do. I like taking care of my lawn so I know if it looks like crap I can only blame myself. While watching the Lawn Care Nut he discussed Killinga grass and dismiss. It worked as promised on dollar weed and several more.
