Let’s dive in and learn more about Poa Annua and Rescue Grass

In our previous blog post, we discussed the importance for preventing spring weeds and promoting healthy turf development through potassium. This month, our focus shifts to tackling the winter grassy weeds that emerge when temperatures start to rise.

The Pesky Perennial: Poa Annua

One of the most common culprits in lawns is Poa annua, also known as annual bluegrass. This cool-season weed thrives in the mild temperatures of spring and fall. It grows in low, dense patches that can crowd out your desired turfgrass. Poa annua can be particularly problematic in shady areas of your lawn.

Rescue Grass Renegade

Another common winter weed in our region is Rescue grass. Introduced as a temporary turf solution, Rescue grass can quickly become a nuisance if left unchecked. It spreads aggressively through stolons (above-ground runners) and seeds, forming dense patches that can displace your desired turfgrass.

Our March Treatment Strategy

To combat these winter grassy weeds, we utilize a broad-spectrum herbicide that targets a wide variety of unwanted plants. This proactive approach ensures that not only Poa annua and Rescue grass are controlled, but also other weeds that may be lurking in your lawn.

Beyond Weed Control: Building a Thick, Healthy Lawn

weed control remains important throughout the growing season, our focus gradually shifts towards promoting healthy turfgrass growth as spring progresses and summer approaches. A thick, lush lawn is the best defense against weeds, as it effectively shades the soil and prevents weed seeds from germinating.
