Crabgrass Control

It's A Pain In The Grass!

Crabgrass is an aggressive, annual wild grass – meaning it will re-grow from its seed each year. Crabgrass typically first appears along the edges of driveways and other paved areas.

Crabgrass seeds are transported either by animals or in the wind, then germinates when ideal weather conditions are reached. It germinates when soil temperatures are consistently above an average of about 15°C. Which gives us a narrow window to treat it pre-emergent meaning the earlier you take action the better.

How To Identify Crabgrass

  • Rolled stems
  • Stems may be reddish-purple
  • Coarse-textured, wide blades
  • Grow outward, star shaped pattern
  • Grow in patches on lawn or edges of walkways

How To Control Crabgrass

  • Pre-emergent corn-gluten application every April
  • Post-care treatments to replace any patches in your lawn ie. Aeration, Overseeding, Topdressing

Frequently Asked Questions

What products do you use?

We use corn-gluten which is a granular product that comes from milling corn. This means its is a natural way to get rid of your crabgrass.

How does corn-gluten work?

When applied at the right time corn-gluten prevents crabgrass seeds from growing and spreading by inhibiting them during germination.

*Crabgrass control should therefor not be applied recently after grass seed*

Can I walk on my grass right away after application?

Yes! It is safe for pets and family immediately after application!

How often will I need to water it after the application?
