Crabgrass is a weed that grows annually with wide, spreading leaves that can stretch out in diameter up to 12 inches. These plants are capable of producing over 150,000 seeds and they leave behind large areas of dead grass if they are removed after they sprout.
The best way to combat crabgrass is to attack it before it starts to grow with a preventative pre-emergent.
Green Bee applies a spread-on, granular based pre-emergent that creates a barrier in the soil to stop the germination of crabgrass. Applying this pre-emergent in February to early March can be quite effective in preventing crabgrass growth throughout the season.
Green Bee’s crabgrass pre-emergent is included in our lawn care services.
