Didn’t you spray for crabgrass? I have crabgrass…

Are you sure it’s crabgrass? There are many annual and perennial grassy weeds that invade our local lawns. If it grows taller than your regular grass it may be Fox Tail, Yellow Nutsedge, Barnyard Grass, Tall Fescue, Quackgrass which are all commonly mistaken for crabgrass. These grassy weeds usually require a specialty post-emergent herbicide as part of a Lawn Renovation Plan to successfully control. Crabgrass grows outward along the ground and has a “turkey foot” type seed head. One plant can take up an area of a few feet when mature. When you receive a pre-emergent crabgrass application from PLS, you are getting the best product at the best time for control of crabgrass. With varying weather conditions, it is not always 100% control, but it is better than many of our competitors. Post-emergent control of crabgrass is best performed early in its growth stage. It is an annual which means by September it will be dying off on its own. It is best to trim back growth as to not allow seed development.
