Did you know that crabgrass is an aggressive summer annual that can produce thousands of seeds? In fact, one crabgrass plant can produce upwards of 250,000 seeds, which can stay viable in the soil for more than one year. These seeds can also travel great distances by wind, animals and your own shoes.
Once crabgrass establishes itself in your lawn it’s incredibly difficult to get rid of. The reason is because it actually produces and secrets its own herbicide which can kill nearby plants. It also grows extremely well in exposed or thin areas of your turf, quickly taking over and preventing desirable grasses from thickening up.
