Grassy Weeds

Grassy Weeds

Appearance: Similar to its’ name, Grassy Weeds look similar to regular grass, but will have a little different texture and growing pattern.  They are also very invasive weeds, and will take over normal grass blades, if not treated in a timely fashion.  Grassy Weeds tend to grow in grassy areas that are weak or sparse, where the weeds have plenty of room to grow and expand.

Location and Behavior Patterns: Grassy Weeds are usually located among other grasses in your lawn, but may also sprout in flower beds, too.  They are the most common form of weeds.  Among Grassy Weeds, some common species, includes; Crabgrass, Foxtail, Barnyardgrass, and Goosegrass.  Grassy Weeds are annuals, which means that they will last for only one season.  They grow from seeds that were dropped from the previous Fall. 

Grassy Weeds are very fast-growing plants.  They appear in early Spring and will continue to grow until late Fall, unless they are treated.

Treatment: The best time of the year to treat Grassy Weeds is in the early Spring, by using a pre-emergent herbicide.  Later in the year, the use of weed killer products is also an effective way to rid your property of this invasive weed.  Maintaining a strong, healthy lawn will help to limit the development of Grassy Weeds, because they will have no room for emerging in a lawn that is rich and vibrant.
