Weeds growing in your beloved garden are as annoying as they can be. With the arrival of spring not only do flowers, trees, and green grass sprout and start blossoming but also unwanted weeds start invading your lawn. Crabgrass in particular can get very frustrating to deal with during this season, fortunately for you, in this article, we’ll present you a solution for dealing with these annual uninvited guests.
First of all, you should know why your lawn is getting so much crabgrass, the more you get to understand the problem the better, right? Crabgrass is an annual harmless weed that tends to germinate during spring and the beginning of summer when the soil reaches temperatures between 55° and 65°F at a 3″ depth for 5 consecutive days. These sprouts prefer growing on sandy, compacted terrains where the grass is more weakened and thinner. Besides, weeds like crabgrass like it when your lawn has excess water and phosphorus levels which as you know, happens during the first weeks of spring when snow is starting to melt.
Another thing you should keep in mind is that ungerminated seeds can wait in the soil for up to thirty years before sprouting! A single crabgrass plant can produce up to 150,000 seeds during the growing season. No wonder why controlling them gets so difficult.
