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.
CRABGRASS IN AUGUST
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.
PURPLELEAF SPOTTED SPURGE
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.
