Whether your lawn’s primary use is for entertaining the kids, or boosting the curb appeal of your business, one particular foe of an attractive lawn is crabgrass. This is an annual weed grass that, if left unattended, can overtake your landscape. 

Treating Crabgrass

Crabgrass is likely to flourish in warmer temperatures, but, gets its start during the spring when lawns aren’t watered as frequently. When a lawn goes an extended period of time without being watered, it has the potential to become thin and patchy. This creates an ideal environment for the crabgrass to get the foothold that is necessary to begin flourishing. A natural defense against crabgrass is keeping your lawn healthy as well as thick. Watering your home or office’s lawn on a regular schedule ensures that the soil retains an ideal moisture level.
