Do you know the differences between Crabgrass and Dalligrass?

It can be hard to tell the difference, but we wanted to give some tips on identifying each. It’s important to know which weed you’re dealing with, because the treatment is very different.

Dallisgrass is a big problem comparatively, because it’s hard to get rid of or prevent, Pre-emergents and herbicide don’t work on this weed, because the root systems are just so deep and extensive. You’ll have to dig up each clump completely, or spray Round-up in the center of the clumps. This will also kill your grass around it, which is why we don’t normally recommend Round-up. Your grass will eventually grow back.

Crabgrass does respond to pre-emergents and herbicide, specifically Tenacity. If you’re not sure what weeds you have, you can call one of our techs to come check it out and treat the yard.
