How to Identify and Treat Weeds in Your Lawn

Many people spend too much time on their lawn looking for answers about weed treatment. If they were to track every single hour they spent in their yard, they would most likely realize how much time was wasted. While it is true that working to get rid of different intruders in the lawn can be satisfying, the routine will eventually get boring. Identifying weeds and finding their treatment is much easier when you get help from experts who are familiar with finding the most convenient ways to get rid of annoying weeds.

Common Weeds and their Control

Bindweed

This pesky plant is commonly known to the lawn world as Morning Glory and Creeping Jenny. It is a kind of weed that is hard to eradicate due to its widespread root system. It has a sprawling, prostate, vining growth habit that may climb by twisting around fence lines or twining around other plants’ stems. With arrowhead-shaped leaves, bindweed blooms during summer and is very attractive. It resembles the morning glory with its white or pink color.

Controlling this weed using herbicides like glyphosate is a good method to slowly eradicate them. You can paint glyphosate on bindweed leaves and continuous applications may provide good results. There are herbicides that can be sprayed on the foliage of the bindweed such as the 2,4-D combinations during its flowering season in August or September. This has been proven to be very effective. Remember that before applying pesticide, always read the label.

Crabgrass

Crabgrass is different than bluegrass. It has a lighter green color and wider blades which is also called summer annual grass. It normally grows flat to the ground and often has reddish or purple stems. It also grows below mowing height which makes it difficult to eradicate using different garden tools. In places with good density, crabgrass is less dominant. Increasing your lawn’s density using traditional practices will help to avoid spreading.

Herbicides that are pre-emergent such as benefin, trifluralin, DCPA, dithiopyr, oxadiazon, prodiamine or pendimethalin can be applied. If applied correctly at the proper time, these herbicides can help you control crabgrass. There are also other post-emergent crabgrass controllers such as MSMA, DSMA, and MAMA that can provide control effectively.

Dandelion

The dandelion is a common perennial weed that also has an extensive root system. Flowers are yellow in color and they can develop anytime from March to November. These flowers are then followed by the sprouting of fluffy seedheads. Dandelions thrive under low turf density, so in order to control its growth, increasing turf density is recommended.

It is easy to dig out dandelions just by using special tools. However, regeneration is still possible especially if there is a portion of the root left. The most effective herbicide to treat dandelion infestation is a combination of 2,4-D applied during spring and fall.

Foxtail

This is another summer annual grass that can easily creep through your lawn. It has wider blades compared to bluegrass which also has a lighter green-colored leaves. It grows faster than most weeds and seed heads can form even if you mow it regularly. With good turf grass density in your lawn, foxtail will be less dominant. It almost has the same remedy as crabgrass because you can also use pre-emergent herbicides to control it.

Buffalo bur
Often called prickly nightshade and Kansa thistle, Buffalo bur is a tap-rooted annual weed. It has yellow spines on its stems that are long enough to stand out in your lawn. It has flower heads that can also grow as high as 2 feet. This weed is also drought-resistant, making it harder to control during summer where it has its highest occurrence.

Controlling this plant is essential to your lawn’s health because it is one of the hosts for the Colorado potato beetle. Make sure to wear a pair of gloves when attempting to pull this weed to avoid injury caused by its spines. Herbicides can also be applied to control this plant during its late bud to its early flower stage.
Maintaining your lawn’s vibrant color starts with your plants’ health. Eradicate weeds using the proper tools and pesticides to avoid any further damage to your lawn. Remember, weeds are very persistent but if you have the patience to control their growth, you will have the beautiful lawn you have always wanted.
