Little Booger Causing Problems

American burnweed has been a problem in many lawns this season. Easy fix to post treat but we just wanted to discuss why you may find it in your lawn even when a premergent was applied at an appropriate timeline. Many of these seeds stay above the soil profile which tremendously inhibits the preemergent's ability to stunt the plants growth and prevent it from maturing. These plants have very shallow root systems and are easy to pull. They can also be treated with common products such as those containing 2-4D and glyphosate. Only use the latter if you are spraying in non-turf areas and/or areas where other desirable plants are not nearby. If we maintain your property and you notice this weed, feel free to give us a call and we can take care of them for you.
