Quick Tips For Killing Crabgrass

Crabgrass can really cause you a lot of trouble when it comes to keeping you yard look nice. It can make it difficult to enjoy a nice time in the yard with bare feet as well.  There are a few things that you can do in order to help get rid of the crabgrass and keeping your grass green.  Start with some of these ideas before you get too worked up about it.

1.)   Purchase a pre-treatment that you can place on your lawn.  You can look at your local hardware store or your local nursery in order to find the right type of treatment.  Ask for assistance if you can not find it because you do not want to purchase something that will kill your grass.

2.)   Try not to cut your grass really short.  If you are the type of person that really enjoys having a short lawn you may need to reconsider.  The crabgrass needs the sunlight in order to grow. If you let your grass get a little bit higher it will block some of the sunlight from reaching the roots and it will not grow as frequently or as quickly.

3.)   Consider digging it up the roots. This may be a good idea if you do not have a lot of crabgrass in your yard.  Just remember to wear thick gloves if you are going to be taking this approach.
