Crabgrass can be tough to get rid of, but we're here to help. It pops up in chunks and the thick blades soon take over and give your yard a messy look.
One of the biggest weapons you have against crabgrass is timing. Applying pre-emergence herbicide in the spring before the crabgrass can sprout helps kill the emerging seed sprouts and keeps things manageable for the upcoming summer months. Our 6 and 7 step treatments plans attack crabgrass and other unwanted weeds at multiple intervals throughout the year, ensuring they don't stand a chance! Timing is everything, and if you don't get signed up with us early enough to get the pre-emergence down, don't fret! We can still help you maintain a consistent and healthy looking lawn by taking the proper steps.
Once the soil has warmed up and your yard begins teeming with life (wanted and unwanted), the time window for pre-emergence has passed. You may think pulling is effective, but think twice! If the seed head tines have spread out like a fork, you'll end up scattering fresh crabgrass seeds and may make the problem even worse! If the roots are embedded too deeply, you may also end up pulling up perfectly good grass chunks as well, leaving you with bare spots in your yard and convienient holes for the crabgrass seeds to fall in to.
As part of our 6 and 7 step treatment programs, we spray post-emergence herbicide directly on to the crabgrass after it sprouts. Post-emergence herbicides can take up to two weeks to reach their full potential, so keep an eye on any hotspots you may have. The best time to apply is when the soil is moist and the plants are dry. If temperatures are too low, it may prove to be ineffective. Once again, timing is important!
Crabgrass can be resistant, and some spots may need some extra attention. Areas near curbs, sidewalks, and driveways are more susceptible to crabgrass due to the heat these areas absorb. This it's important to do multiple treatments. Making sure to give extra care to these hot spots will help keep the crabgrass at bay!
