Crabgrass in Maryland

Crabgrass in Maryland lawns is probably the single most annoying weed in your lawn. Once it is established in your lawn it is very difficult to eradicate. The reason for this starts literally at the root of the problem. What I mean by this is the fact that crabgrass seedlings lay dormant all winter waiting for the soil temperature to reach the perfect temperature to bloom. By the time you realize crabgrass has germinated and is in full bloom the air temperatures become too hot to apply an effective control to eliminate the pesky little fellow.

Prevent Crabgrass

The key to a beautiful lawn and is our top priority is the prevention of crabgrass. While there are several techniques that can be applied the most successful programs implement a good pre-emergent to stop crabgrass from germinating in the first place.

Yes, OrganicLawns provides 2 separate sets of crabgrass controls for all 3 of our lawn care programs that we offer to provide season long crabgrass control for your lawn to unveil its fullest potential.

Crabgrass Facts:


Mowing Height for crabgrass

The basic decision to increase your mowing height by even an inch can make the difference between success and failure. The University of Maryland Cooperative Extension actually did a study on mowing heights and what they found in the study was that with every inch increase in height resulted in exponentially less weeds in the lawn. The ideal height of your lawn should be around 4 inches in height. This 4 inch height will in itself prevent a lot of unwanted potential for crabgrass to occur.Some people like the look of a lawn cut short. The most likely reason for this is that it hides the weeds that are actually present in your lawn. The only problem is that the shorter the height allows for crabgrass to continually take a stronghold on your lawn and the idea of scalping or cutting your lawn short will lead to an eventual overtaking of the lawn by the infamous crabgrass weed.

Raise the blades of your mower and call OrganicLawns immediately so we can give you the best of both worlds. Let us provide you with an aesthetically pleasing lawn with the health befits and strong root system of lawn cut at the correct length.

Will watering Help with Crabgrass?

In Maryland the correct time of day is almost as important as the correct amount of water. The golden rule for watering your lawn starts with the birds chirping in the morning. The earlier you can water your lawn the better results. The reason it is important to water your lawn early in the day is so that your lawn will receive the water and be able to process and intake the water while also dry out before it gets too hot especially in the dog days of summer. A wet lawn in 90 degree temperatures can lead to disease issues and a magnifying effect to cause temporary and sometime permanent damage to your grass. When you water it is also too important to water for longer durations and less frequently. Many people make the mistake of watering just for a few minutes several times a day. This can lead to a shallow root system which will lead your lawn susceptible to crabgrass from the stress that will occur respectively.


Aeration and Seedingto Prevent Crabgrass

Aeration and Seeding is important in Maryland because it replaces the bare areas throughout your entire lawn with beautiful crabgrass fighting newly germinated grass. Yes, grass is your best asset for preventing and fighting off the pesky crabgrass weed. Weeds in general as well as crabgrass look for places to fill in. If your lawn has been aerated and seeded professionally by an OrganicLawns team member it will have the thickness and healthiness to gobble up that bare area and we will also provide your lawn with a well-timed organic-based fertilizer program that your lawn will benefit from by having less weeds and of course zero crabgrass.
