Crabgrass: What Is It and Why Is It Hazardous for Your Lawn?

Crabgrass is a plant that may be a great hassle for homeowners to get rid of. It’s an annual weed, not grass that can swiftly take over your yard. Crabgrass, in fact, may destroy other grasses and take nutrients, making it a weed that has to be eradicated right away! In this blog article, we’ll show you how to detect crabgrass and how to get rid of it so that your lawn may stay healthy and green year after year.

What exactly is crabgrass?

Crabgrass is an invasive species that spreads by seed. Crabgrass may generate up to 150,000 seeds per plant, making it very easy to spread if not managed. This plant thrives in hot, dry environments and can be found in abundance in the early summer as temperatures increase.

How does crabgrass appear?

If you’re not sure if you have crabgrass, there are a few techniques to figure it out. Take a look at your lawn’s general appearance first. It’s possible that patches of yellow or brown grass are a symptom of crabgrass. Looking for the weeds themselves is another way to know. Crabgrass has hairy leaves and is light green in hue. The stems of these grasses are also often longer than those of other grasses on your lawn. Lawn Height Requirements

What is the height at which you mow your lawn?

Maintaining the right height for your lawn is one of the most effective strategies to prevent crabgrass. This involves maintaining most varieties of grass between two and three inches tall. This may seem excessive, but higher grass serves to shade away weed seeds, preventing them from germinating. If you don’t know how to mow your lawn properly, get a professional lawn care company to do it for you.

Prevention at an Early Stage

If you’ve ever had to deal with crabgrass, you might be wondering how to get rid of it for good. Preventing crabgrass from developing in the first place is the easiest approach to get rid of it. Spreading a pre-emergent herbicide and fertilizer to your lawn in the early spring is one approach to do this. Crabgrass seeds are killed before they have a chance to grow by the correct herbicide, which may help your lawn appear its best all season. Fertilizer gives your lawn the nourishment it needs to be healthy and robust.

Healthy Lawns Keep Crabgrass At Bay

Another technique to keep crabgrass at bay is to keep your lawn in good shape. Crabgrass will be crowded out, making it less likely to take over. Make sure you’re watering deeply and frequently, mowing at the appropriate height, and fertilizing on a regular basis to achieve this.

Fertilizer will help give your lawn the nourishment is needs! Fertilizing creates naturally occurring minerals in your grass’s soil, allowing it to grow consistently. When the nutrients are released, the root systems will fill in any bare patches, depriving weed seeds of sunlight, and thus halting their germinating process.

Lime application usually takes place in early April. So don’t hesitate to book an appointment with us! This will help your grass grow, as it balances out the acid that has built up over the winter.
