The lovely mild Phoenix climate over the winter an early spring months means one thing for your lawn – a much longer growing season. However, the longer your lawn grows and the more it rains, the worse the situation becomes for weeds. Even as lawns are covered with snow in other parts of the country, winter weeds could easily affect your Arizona lawn, making Phoenix weed control is an absolute must.
Your gorgeous lawn can be quickly marred by weeds, and understanding exactly what you should expect can help you look for potential problems while they’re still small. Here are a few you may want to watch for.
– Crab grass is fairly common if you have turf grass as part of your landscaping. You may find it if you live in an area that is flood irrigated regularly. Crab grasses are summer annuals that generally grow in patches, can grow fairly tall and thicker than your Bermuda hybrid lawn, making it a real issue for your lawn.
– Filaree, henbit, mustards and dandelions can drain your lawn of its resources in a hurry. While the flowers can be beautiful, you certainly don’t want it to become part of your lawn.
– Mallows, a plant with heart shaped leaves, are rapid growers, with a strong tap root that develops quickly making them hard to remove even at a young stage. Dormant winter lawns can develop Mallow quickly with winter rains.
– Burclover tend to trail along the ground, at least in a lawn, to avoid the mower. While it can be thick and make a lawn look full, when mature it produces fruit that harden into pods with two to three rows of prickles that are like tiny hooks. These burs are very painful to bare feet, which means it can pose a real threat to your yard and to your feet.
