Crabgrass is as feisty a weed as the crab is an animal, which helps explain the name. In addition, the leaves on crabgrass even look like crab legs. If you want to have a great lawn, you need to get rid of and stop crabgrass as early as possible. Not only is it unsightly, but it can take needed nutrients from your lawn, thus sapping your lawn’s health.
Crabgrass, a grassy weed from the Digitaria family (the leaves can look like the digits on a hand), is a common lawn pest. There are two main types of crabgrass in the United States – large or hairy crabgrass, and smooth crabgrass. And just one crabgrass plant can produce up to 150,000 seeds, thus potentially causing a huge problem if not stopped in his tracks. Here are some tips on how to stop crabgrass:
- Be on the lookout for it
- Pull weeds, but be careful
- Apply a pre-emergent weed control product
- Use proper mowing techniques
- Don’t forget regular watering and fertilization
- Do not do “edging” along driveways and sidewalks
- Talk with your Lawn Doctor lawn care expert
