Everything You Should Know About Crabgrass

As lawn care experts, On The Green is fully equipped to prevent or remove your crabgrass without harming the rest of your lawn. Crabgrass is a common weed in Maryland that can eventually take over your lawn. We start your weed prevention early as part of our lawn care services. At the start of the growing season in March l, we treat your lawn with Pre-Emergent Weed Control with Fertilizer. A pre-emergent weed control prevents the seeds of the crabgrass from germinating, ensuring they never take root. Our initial application lasts for up to 8 month in the soil, preventing crabgrass. Then we reinforce prevention with a second application with a different active ingredient that controls breakthrough weeds and extends prevention.

Weeds are excellent at growing, which makes it hard to get rid of on your own. That is why On The Green has developed several treatment at both preventing and removing annuals weeds like crabgrass.

To remove crabgrass by hand, you must pull it from the root. Otherwise, the plant will keep growing. Mowing your lawn will not get rid of the crabgrass because you will not remove the roots that way. However, mowing your lawn at 3-4 inches high during the growing season will ensure your lawn is healthy and crabgrass free. There are appropriate weeding tools on the market to assist as this is an excellent way to deal with a new infestation.
