Cultural Strategies for Controlling Crabgrass
Land–Art nutrients are utilized for proper growth and root development. A thick healthy lawn is very effective in fighting weed germination and growth.
- Strategy 1: Avoid establishing turf from seed at the time crabgrass normally is germinating. Avoid any disturbance of a pre-emergence barrier. Irrigate to avoid wilting of turf.
- Strategy 2: Raise mowing height slightly at the time crabgrass seed is germinating, lower height of cut and collect clippings during the time that crabgrass is setting seed.
- Strategy 3: Always follow good cultural practices; mowing, irrigating, and the Land–Art fertilization program all season long.
- Strategy 4: Utilizing both pre-emergence and post emergent products.
