FAQ
Question: 

Grasses are taking over my strawberry patch. How can they be controlled?

Answer: 

If the strawberry patch is being overrun with perennial grasses, such as quackgrass, control is not very practical.  Your best option would be to prepare a new site for a strawberry bed this summer or fall and plant a new bed next spring.  Annual grasses, such as crabgrass and foxtail, can be controlled by cultivation and hand pulling.
