Keep your Lawn Healthy with Dreamlawns Weed Control
There you are looking at your lush green grass and suddenly you see something growing that doesn’t belong. Crabgrass is on of the most misidentified lawn weeds and a big challenge for weed control. Crabgrass grows close to the ground and gets its name from stems that grow out low, like crab legs and has a blue-green or yellow-green color to it.
When the soil warms up in Spring this makes for an excellent germination time for crabgrass which is an annual weed. Temperatures between 55 and 60 are it’s favorite! Once crabgrass sprouts it becomes very difficult to control because the seeding phase is quick and can drop up to 5,000 seed onto your lawn. And if you happened to have trimmed your lawn too low, it gives the soil an even better chance to warm up and makes it that much easier for crabgrass to root and take over your lawn.
Crabgrass, besides having an unfavorable appearance can also cause major damage to your lawn as well. It can weaken lawn grass making it easier for the crabgrass to reproduce.
Don’t let crabgrass choke the beauty and life out of your lawn. Call Dreamlawns for a FREE Estimate! Ask about $25 off your first application.
