Crabgrass is perhaps the most dreaded of lawn adversaries. This weed will make your grass look patchy and can quickly dominate the entire lawn. Part of our lawn care service is management of weeds like crab grass. Our staff studies how weeds grow, so we know how to get rid of them. You can trust us to get rid of your crabgrass problem.
Growing a Healthy Lawn is the Best Solution
In some cases, chemicals do have to be used to get rid of crabgrass. Rather than being armed head to toe with spray guns, Blade Cutters has found the best way to get rid of crabgrass by properly taking care of your lawn. By making the conditions for regular grass to grow amazing, a natural, healthy lawn will obliterate the crabgrass.
If crabgrass is an issue, we will leave your lawn a little longer and cut the grass more frequently. This technique will prevent the crabgrass from growing and spreading while giving your lawn room to flourish.
The use of chemicals to kill crabgrass should only be carried out by professionals as it is very easy to accidentally ruin your whole lawn if you don’t know what you’re doing. The best time to use chemicals is in the spring or winter before the crabgrass has started to grow. Since the time for that is over, there are still chemical options. We usually only advise doing this when the crabgrass has taken up large patches of your yard and there’s no other option.
Another technique we might try is to go and get our hands dirty. The reason why crabgrass got its name is because it has a central root and then spreads out with tendrils similar to a crab’s body. Using a pair of pliers, it’s possible to remove the root. This is something that can be done in the spring or with small cases of crabgrass.
