Get rid of crabgrass from your lawn

Crabgrass is an opportunistic annual grass that sprouts in the late Spring, anywhere there is bare soil, water, and sunlight. It is a common weed in the lawn. Crabgrass continues to grow all summer and doesn’t really become ugly until late Summer when it spreads seeds. Even when the crabgrass is killed by the cold winter, the seeds remain intact for the next year. So, it is advised to take care of them by lawn maintenance services. They told me it was crabgrass and it is very easy to remove them.
1) The first step is to keep crabgrass seeds from spreading.
2) After that, kill the existing crabgrass.
3) Immediately remove the dead crabgrass plants.
4) Replant bare lawn spots with new grass seed.
5) Apply a crabgrass preventer at appropriate times.
6) Set your lawnmower at the high end of the range that is best for your grass type.
7) Restrict excess fertilizing or too-frequent watering since it promotes weed growth. Weeds reduce the quality of our lawn. So remove it early as possible.

Hope this helped!
