Crabgrass Prevention Tips

The issue with crabgrass is that it spreads quickly once the warm summer days roll in. Between seasons, the plant produces thousands of seeds that make its way into the ground. If crabgrass starts to sprout and establish itself, there are ways to address it and remove it. There are two methods pertaining to crabgrass: prevention and control. This part is completed through regularly scheduled lawn care.

However, controlling the crabgrass requires more than just regular lawn maintenance. The key to crabgrass control is making sure the seeds aren’t able to germinate. You can do this by achieving a healthy, thick, weed-free lawn. With our 7-step lawn care program your lawn will be thick, green, and weed-free.

Nutri-Green's Protection Against Crabgrass

Since spring has sprung, our first steps of the 7-step program are two pre-emergent applications with weed killer. These treatments will build a strong weed barrier that will prevent new crabgrass growth, along with killing off other weeds that lie in your yard.

Once summer strolls in, we have four weed control applications that kill resilient summer weeds. The lawn fertilizer will thicken up and keep your lawn green during the growing season. When fertilizing your lawn, it should be watered well and regularly. This water will provide it with enough moisture to reach the deep roots. Sometimes, with an irregular watering schedule, it can cause your lawn to have shallow root growth and dehydration stress. See our lawn watering suggestions.
