Defeating Pesky Crabgrass

Defeating crabgrass in your yard: challenging, but not impossible!

This problematic clump grass is an annual pest that is most known for growing in the thin and bare spots across your lawn. Before this coarse, yellowish-green grass dies each fall, a single plant will produce thousands of seeds that can germinate across your yard the following spring.

It is most effective to kill annual plants through prevention methods. Therefore, you will want to kill the crabgrass in the spring before the soil reaches 55°F, and it starts to germinate and spread across your lawn. Crabgrass can be killed without damaging the desirable yard grass by using products such as Bonide Crabgrass Preventer.

Bonide Crabgrass Preventer keeps the crabgrass from germinating in established lawns and residential landscapes. It also provides post-emergence control of seedling crabgrass after germination and emergence for up to four weeks.

In the effort to have a healthy and attractive yard, crabgrass can be a huge obstacle that can be overcome with the right tools and knowledge base. With the help of products like Bonide Crabgrass Preventer, you can reclaim your lawn from this pesky grass this spring.
