Crabgrass is a highly-germinating, warm-season annual that has the power to take over your entire yard. A single crabgrass plant can produce up to 150,000 seeds! These seeds not only germinate in the spring but can also remain dormant and germinate in the future years.
Once crabgrass seeds germinate and plants appear, mowing your lawn short won't stop the seeds. With its low-growing, crab-like growth, crabgrass can spread seeding even when cut as low as 1/2 inch! To rid your yard of this pesky plant, professional treatment is needed to prevent crabgrass from becoming seed-spreading plants.
