Annual grassy weeds are often an invasive species and spread thousands of seed during their lifespan. The common ones you’ll see in lawns are crabgrass, goosegrass, foxtail and barnyardgrass. Grassy weeds are sometimes tough to identify to an untrained eye, but once you know what it is that you’re looking for you’ll be able to spot the vegetation in your yard. Since these types of weeds only live for one season, they tend to be easy for lawn care experts to control because their root system is too weak to help spread new plant growth. Quality Landscape and Lawn Care understands that little touches matter and having professional lawn care to control and remove annual grassy weeds can go far in helping to care for your property.
Annual grassy weeds are tough, aggressive plants that thrive on stressed areas of your yard. Dried-out lawns, thin patches, and sun-scorched areas are all inviting spots for grassy weeds. Grassy weeds are able to withstand low heights from regular lawn mowing, which allow them work well as an invasive type of plant. The best way to fight them is to learn how they work and what they like, then deprive them.
Annual grassy weeds only live for one growing season and have to work fast. They do not have strong root systems underground needed to spread new plants, the way others do. Since annual grassy weeds only live for a season, they produce hundreds or even thousands of seeds that lie dormant until the following spring. If the conditions are right, the seed will take over your greenspace. Over time, they can completely overrun your yard. Plants of this type include crabgrass, barnyardgrass and ryegrass.
The best way to keep weeds out of your lawn is to make them feel unwelcome in the first place. Keep your lawn thick and healthy, and weeds won’t find a place to settle in. If you mow your residential lawn at the proper height, usually one of the two highest settings on your mower, water deeply, and feed regularly, you’ll do a lot to keep weeds out of your yard. Quality Landscape and Lawn Care knows the proper sprays to use and the correct time in the season to treat your lawn, to make sure grass seeds are not damaged.
