Crabgrass Control for Worcester, Massachusetts

Crabgrass Control in Worcester, MassachusettsCrabgrass control for Worcester, Massachusetts and throughout central New England is often a multi-step program that requires several crabgrass control treatments to break the cycle of seeding, growth, and reseeding.

Crabgrass is a tough, herbaceous annual plant that keeps coming back once it takes firm hold on a lawn, so early crabgrass control is crucial. Each crabgrass plant can produce as many as 150,000 or more seeds, so once crabgrass gets established in your lawn, you can see how hard it can sometimes be to truly get rid of it. Fortunately, because it’s an annual plant, it begins as a seed each year and then dies at year’s end. For lawns in Worcester, Massachusetts the trick for effective crabgrass control is to break its cycle of life.

The most effective crabgrass control requires a pre-emergent treatment that puts down a barrier to kill the crabgrass before it has a chance to grow in. For Worcester, Massachusetts this is usually by the first week in May – right around the time many people begin to think about lawn care — crabgrass has already begun to germinate. That’s why it’s so important to get an early jump on crabgrass control.

Here at Ford’s Hometown Services, we offer a comprehensive crabgrass control program and lawn care for Worcester, Massachusetts that starts with pre-emergent treatment. But if you start treatment beyond when crabgrass begins to germinate, it makes it increasingly difficult to control. Often it means you should expect to get crabgrass during the first year of treatment in your crabgrass control program and that in the next year crabgrass control treatment will control approximately 85 percent of it and it will get progressively better each year after that. If service is performed before May 1st we will continue our efforts and spot spray with a post emergent herbicide to reduce the number of plants. Post emergent can take a couple of weeks before seeing results.
