Common Weeds in Georgia

One of the most important parts of a weed control program is the ability to recognize each weed and know the best way to kill that particular weed. Every weed is different and requires the right product at a vulnerable point in its life cycle in order to kill it. If the wrong product is applied, even when the weed is vulnerable, it will not die. Weeds tend to be most vulnerable at the beginning and the end of their life cycle. They are more difficult to kill during the middle of their life cyle because they have reached full maturity and continue to grow with vigor. Different types of weeds begin their respective life cycles in each of the four seasons.

 

Crabgrass

Crabgrass

Crabgrass is one of the most common grassy weeds that exist in the south. It is a fast growing weed that can completely take over an entire lawn, killing all "real" grass in its path. It is a summer annual, which means it starts from seed in the early spring and grows quickly in the summer. It will die in the winter, leaving seeds behind to start the process over again. The best way to control crabgrass is by applying 2 coats of pre-emergent in the early spring. This creates a layer in the soil that kills seedlings as they sprout. Crabgrass is very difficult to kill once it reaches maturity in the summer.

Spurge

Spurge is a low growing weed that creates a mat over the existing lawn. This dense mat will smother and kill the grass underneath it. It grows in clusters of vines with several small leaves on each vine. Some spurges grow in the winter and others grow in the summer. Spurge is an annual weed and can be prevented by applying pre-emergents in both spring and fall. It can also be killed with certain types of post emergent weed kill products.
