Weed Man's Crabgrass Control Service

crabgrassCrabgrass is a troublesome annual weed that does not blend well with the healthy, desirable grasses in your lawn, and it can be very invasive if not dealt with appropriately. Often confused with quackgrass or tall fescue, crabgrass has a lime green colour and resembles a miniature corn plant as it starts to grow in early summer. Later in the summer, it develops large seed heads, eventually turning a purplish colour and dying off in late fall. Areas that are sandy, sunny, already damaged by pests, or located along sidewalks and driveways are especially susceptible to crabgrass. Once crabgrass is established in your lawn, it can take several years of care and attention to get it under control. Your Weed Man lawn care professional will put expert methods to work for you, and in a few seasons, you can achieve a thick, lush, crabgrass-free lawn that is well worth the wait!


Take Back Your Lawn With Weed Man

crabgrassYour trained and certified Weed Man technician will discuss the crabgrass treatment plan that is best suited to the conditions of your lawn. Crabgrass is not controllable with standard broadleaf weed control products. Instead, using safe, ecosystem-based IPM strategies, we stand by the effectiveness of our specialized crabgrass control program for correcting the imbalances caused by a crabgrass invasion. Note that specific treatment methods will vary by region, depending on your local pesticide by-laws.


  • In the late spring, we’ll apply crabgrass control products before the crabgrass seed has an opportunity to germinate. (Following this application, do not rake or dig in your lawn, as this will result in a broken barrier and will negatively impact the effectiveness of the product.)

  • In addition to these applications, we recommend aeration and seeding to improve the density of the turf to reduce the amount of crabgrass germination.


A thick, healthy, well-maintained lawn is always the best line of defense against crabgrass and other weeds, pests, and disease.

Follow beneficial cultural practices like watering, mowing, fertilizing, and mechanical core aeration to make the most of your professional lawn care program.
