Crabgrass Look-Alikes

Posted by John Coppola on Apr 23, 2018 3:00:00 PM

At ExperiGreen, we start to receive calls from customers each spring who state that their lawn is beginning to be overrun with Crabgrass. In most cases, Crabgrass will not be of a size that you would notice it in your lawn until mid to late May.  Crabgrass is a summer annual, grassy weed that germinates when soil temperatures reach 62 degrees at a depth of 1 to 2 inches for 3 straight days. In our area, Crabgrass germination can occur any time toward the end of March, at this point however, the Crabgrass seedlings are so small (if they exist) that they are not easily seen in the lawn. In most cases, if Crabgrass did germinate, you would not notice it in your lawn until mid to late May.
