To learn more about how to beat crabgrass, explore some facts about this pesky weed.
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 did a study on mowing heights and found that every inch increase in height resulted in exponentially fewer weeds in the lawn. Your lawn’s ideal height should be around 4 inches. This 4-inch height will prevent the unwanted potential for crabgrass to occur.
Some people like the look of a lawn cut short. Many people prefer this because it hides the weeds present in your lawn. The only problem is that the shorter the height allows for crabgrass to continually take a stronghold on your lawn.
Scalping or cutting your lawn short will lead to the infamous crabgrass weed eventually overtaking your lawn.
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 benefits and strong root system of a lawn cut at the correct length.
In Maryland, watering at the correct time of day is almost as important as using 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 you will get.
It is important to water your lawn early in the day so it will receive, process and intake the water while also drying out before it gets too hot.
The heat is particularly troublesome in the dog days of summer. A wet lawn in 90-degree temperatures can lead to disease issues and creates a magnifying effect that causes temporary and or even permanent damage to your grass. It’s also essential to water for longer durations and on a less-frequent schedule. Many people make the mistake of watering for a few minutes several times a day. This watering method can lead to a shallow root system, which leave your lawn susceptible to crabgrass from the stress.
Aeration and seeding are important in Maryland because they replace the bare areas throughout your entire lawn with newly germinated grass, which fights off crabgrass. Yes, the grass is your best asset for preventing and fighting off the pesky crabgrass weed. Weeds generally 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 needed to gobble up that bare area. We will also provide your lawn with a well-timed, organic-based fertilizer program. Your lawn will benefit by having fewer weeds and zero crabgrass.
Our summer season in Maryland is very unpredictable. We have summer temperatures that can stay in the ’80s and create disease problems that allow crabgrass to thrive and flourish — therefore creating various issues with your lawn. Last summer, our temperatures routinely exceeded 90 degrees. Brown patches become a prominent issue, along with summer dormancy, due to the extreme heat.
Crabgrass loves the heat, and we must be properly prepared for any temperature variant that may present itself. Here are a few practices summarized to help with the fight with crabgrass:
OrganicLawns ensures your lawn receives the proper preparation to achieve excellent performance.
