Dandelions are a biannual weed that live their life as a flowerless plant one year and the next year they  grow three times the size and flowers are yellow, followed by a white poofball.  If these dandelions are  beyond the poofball stage, no worries.  Our special tank mix also kills the seeds.  If you spray your lawn and the neighbors don't spray theirs, no worries.  Our tank mix will prevent some of the seeds that would blow into your lawn from germinating. 

If you still dig out the dandelion by hand or a New and Improved WEED POPPER, Stop!  You will never get the entire root and the plant will just regenerate a new plant from a root the size of thread.

Course Fescue/Tall Fescue in lawn

Tall fescue is a wide-bladed clump grass.  There are varieties like K-31 that are commonly found in vacant lots or on golf courses in the "Rough".  In a lawn, the textural difference of fescue from bluegrass is obvious because of it's clumps and it's ability to grow twice as fast in a given week due to it's very deep root system.  Folks get this grass (weed) planted into their lawns by birds that eat the seeds from a newly planted "outlot" and then seeds (poops) it into the lawn from overhead.  It is also a seed variety the "CHEAP" bird seed companies use as bird food.  Many times you will see a clump of coarse fescue directly beneath a bird feeder.

This grass can not be killed with traditional weed and feeds or dandelion killers.  It will require a total vegetation killer like Roundup.


Wild Violets are light purple broadleaf weeds that reappear every year if not treated. Unlike their cousin the African Violets that die when you look at them wrong, this pest is anything but whimpy. They are one of the toughest weeds in Wyoming and Idaho to control and if you try to spray it yourself, the odds are against you that you will succeed in killing it. This weed requires several applications of our weed mixture to slowly and methodically rid it from your lawn over the course of a season.


Green/Yellow Foxtail is a grassy weed that germinates in May or June and is noticeable in August and September. It gets its name by the seed head that resembles a foxes tail. Its cousin Green foxtail seed head resembles a bristle brush an inch or two long and the diameter of a pencil. This plant is best eradicated with preemergent chemicals that we can offer as a preventive control measure. it tends to thrive in areas on the south side of a home's foundation or along sidewalks and driveways.


Crabgrass is a grassy weed that responds to both pre -mergents and post emergents equally.  All 5 Step Regular customers receive a Free Crabgrass Pre-emergent to control crabgrass.  If you are an Economy 4 step client, you did not receive this service. 

If you would like to upgrade to the Regular Program you must call today to get on our list.  Once the crabgrass begins to become noticeable along sidewalks, driveways or mailbox posst in June, it is too late to prevent and if you call soon enough, we still have a post spray we can use. 


Sandbur is an annual grassy weed that germinates in the spring, forms the spiny burrs during the summer, and then dies with the frost in fall. If you had sandbur in your lawn last year, you will probably have it again this year. Proper mowing, fertilization, and irrigation to create a dense lawn will help to control sandbur.


Spotted spurge in Wyoming is characterized by many slender, pinkish-red stems radiating out from a central tap root, and plants may reach 2 feet in diameter, although most are smaller. It gets its name from the purple spots in the middle of each green leaf. This plant will spread out over the top of a lawn and if left untreated and unmowed, will thin out the turf underneath.


The seeds of puncturevine are a hard caltrop-like case that can injure livestock, people, and pets when stepped on. This plant is best known for puncturing bicycle tires. Another common name is "goatheads." This plant is only controlled by scheduled spraying. Our lawn care programs will provide this control as part of the Economy and Regular Lawn Care Programs. The goatheads are actually seeds and because they are so tough, Universities have proven that they are still viable after 30 years.

black medic

Black medic is in the clover family. This weed is particularly horrible to try to control for a homeowner using over the counter weed killers. Professional help is needed.

Black medic reproduces by seed. Each plant is capable of producing a few thousand seeds, which can survive in the soil for several years. The plant grows well in dry soil, soil low in nitrogen, compacted soil, and in sparse lawns. Its prostrate habit allows black medic to tolerate frequent, close mowing and is very competitive for bluegrass lawns not on a credible lawn fertilization regime.

This plant requires repeated treatments to kill the root system. Green Turf Lawnscapes has the proper fertilization program combined with the proper weed control strategy to rid your lawn of this destructive weed.


Mention ground ivy or creeping Charlie (Glechoma hederacea) to lawn care professionals or homeowners, and you'll most likely make them wince, scream or both. Ground ivy is a common invader of lawns. This pesky weed has very distinctive coin-shaped leaves with round-toothed edges. This plant is competitive in lawn situations because it creeps along the soil surface and can establish roots at each node (where the leaf attaches to the stem). This feature allows it stick to the ground surface like Velcro and makes hand weeding frustrating, if not impossible.


Plantain is another broadleaf weed that will invade thin lawns. On the bright side, organic lovers say the natural antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties of plantain leaves makes it great for healing wounds, and for itching or pain associated with skin problems. A tea made from Plantain leaf can be sprayed on mosquito bites to ease the itch.


Yellow Clover is a broadleaf weed that grows as a biennial, annual or short-lived perennial. The weed blooms between April and July with ½ inch clusters of small, yellow, flowers. As a weed in the clover family it is very hard for a homeowner to control with retail chemicals so professional help should be sought.
