Common Chickweed is a weed found in untreated lawns in Hagerstown, MD

 Do you have Common Chickweed in your lawn or landscape beds?

Have you seen this weed in your lawn in Hagerstown, MD?

Have you tried and failed to control Chickweed in Clear Spring, MD?

Would you like some help to have a green, healthy lawn?

Common Chickweed is found in lawns in Williamsport, MD that are not properly care for.

Common Chick weed is in the Carnation family and is related to some of the regions prettiest wild flowers and flourishes in cold weather.


Common Chickweed
Life cycle: Common chickweed is a winter annual that has smooth stems and leaves; can have several generations a year during cool wet seasons and forms prostrate dense patches in turf, landscape and vegetable gardens.
Conditions that favor growth: thin, weak lawn, prefers poorly drained sites but common in a wide range of soils and conditions

Cultural control: Maintain healthy, dense turf that can compete and prevent weed establishment. Even established chickweed is easily removed with hand pulling. To keep turf strong, fertilize cool-season grasses in the fall rather than spring when it favors the weedy, summer annuals. Mow high to keep grass growing strong. Never scalp or take off more than 1/3 of the height at a time. Water deeply as opposed to frequent, light sprinkling, which encourages weed-seed germination.

Crabgrass Control in the SPRING in Williamsport, MD Lawns


Crabgrass is a weed most of us have seen and have in our lawns in Hagerstown, MD and Williamsport, MD.

Are you tired of fighting CRABGRASS?

Would you like to save your time and money and have the lawn treated right the first time?

Would you like to save what free time you have to spend it with your family and have a thick, lush, green, healthy lawn?

Annual grasses like crabgrass are extremely aggressive. Without treatment, they'll thin and choke out your good grass as they compete for growing space in your lawn in the Williamsport, MD area

Crabgrass grows in lawn, landscape beds that are not properly maintained, mulch rings around trees and shrubs and also can be found in container gardens as well as gardens in the Hagerstown, MD area.

A complete Lawn Treatment Program from Grosh's Lawn Service can help with the crabgrass problem.

Crabgrass flourish's along driveways and sidewalks that have been stressed from the heat/sun and thins out the 'good' grass and scalping of the grass with a string trimmer along the blacktop, sidewalks and curbs allows the crabgrass to take hold.

Millions of dollars a year are spent on crabgrass control to help control the spread of this grassy weed.

Proper mowing height is one step that can help keep crabgrass from spreading throughout the lawn. Crabgrass loves the heat and sun and will out compete with cool season grass under the above mentioned conditions.

Now is the time to do something so that we can get a start of controlling crabgrass in your lawn!

Crabgrass
Life cycle: summer annual
Growth habit: grows up to 2 ft. tall; decumbent growth habit; swollen nodes
Reproduction: may root at nodes
Conditions that favor growth: mowing the lawn too low
Cultural control: maintain a mowing height of 3-4 in.; keep lawn properly fertilized and limed; water in drought conditions
