Crabgrass, smooth (Digitaria ischaemum) or hairy (Digitaria sanguinalis), if left not treated with a pre-emergent can be an unpleasant surprise starting typically towards mid-April each spring that grows into a downright nuisance by midsummer.
Crabgrass is also considered a common undesirable grassy weed that is prevalent in many lawns and gardens across Tennessee. This annual weed thrives in warm weather and can quickly take over your lawn, choking out the grass and leaving unsightly bare spots. It can be a real nuisance to homeowners, making it difficult to maintain a healthy and attractive lawn. Fortunately, SecureLawn has the experience and expertise to help you keep crabgrass under control with timely Spring pre-emergent applications.
Our pre-emergent applications work by creating a barrier that prevents crabgrass seeds from germinating. This barrier is formed by a specialized herbicide that is applied to your lawn in the Spring. As the soil warms up and the crabgrass seeds begin to germinate, they come into contact with the pre-emergent herbicide and are prevented from growing. This is an effective way to keep crabgrass and other invasive select weeds at bay without having to resort to more invasive or time-consuming control methods.
By design, these pre-emergent barriers begin to naturally breakdown through the month of August. Why is that a good thing? It’s because most homeowners do their fall seeding during the months of September, October and early November and you don’t want that pre-emergent herbicide residual hanging around then because it could actually inhibit the grass seed from germinating.
At SecureLawn, we understand the unique challenges that homeowners in Tennessee face when it comes to controlling crabgrass. Our team of experts has years of experience dealing with this common weed and we know exactly what it takes to keep it under control.
