Crabgrass Management

Crabgrass Management

With summer heat, comes crabgrass. Ideal crabgrass management may surprise you. Depending on the amount of crabgrass in your lawn, there are 3 options on how to manage the weed. It’s important to remember that crabgrass is an annual. It will die off naturally, however, it is key to eliminate the weed to prevent additional seeds from spreading throughout your lawn in future seasons.

In every scenario, fall seeding is key to thicken the lawn and eliminate any areas of crabgrass. Be sure to contact Martz Bros. to set up your appointment for fall seeding at (913)789-9333 or Online.

As a customer of Martz Bros. Lawn and Tree Care, you should only have a few, if any, crabgrass weeds. For crabgrass management in your lawn, you can choose the following options:

  • Option #1 – Pull any crabgrass weeds that pop up. This will be most effective when the lawn is moist from the rain or sprinkler. We will focus on these areas when seeding and the new grass will fill in any trouble areas.
  • Option #2 – Leave the crabgrass for now. When fall seeding is done in a few weeks, the new grass will fill in and choke out the crabgrass.
  • Option #3 – Call us to spray the weeds. They will become brown and temporarily unsightly. When fall seeding is done in a few weeks, the new grass will fill in and beautify the areas that were treated.

If you are not a customer of Martz Bros. Lawn and Tree Care, the steps are the same assuming the weeds are minimal. However, if the weeds are in a substantial area of your lawn, you should contact our office for a treatment plan at (913)789-9333 or Online. Left untreated, the crabgrass will continue to seed and spread throughout your lawn.

Fall seeding is key for crabgrass management and the success or your lawn. The dense grass helps eliminate all types of weeds. Call us today with any questions or to schedule your fall seeding at (913)789-9333 or Online.
