Georgia Weeds That Can Ruin Your Lawn

Removing weeds

Weed control service may be your answer if you are stuck dealing with difficult weeds and are not sure how to get rid of them. 

No matter what you do, weeds always seem to grow back, sometimes even stronger than before. They can quickly take over and turn your beautiful lawn into a weed-filled nightmare. Making weed control a priority can help reverse the damage that weeds have caused your lawn and help prevent them from spreading. Weeds you may encounter in Georgia include: 

  • Crabgrass
  • Annual Bluegrass /Poa
  • Dandelions


Crabgrass emerges in warm weather and can have long-lasting damaging effects. A single crabgrass plant can produce up to 150,000 seeds. Those seeds then germinate and start the harmful cycle all over again leaving you with a yard full of weeds. Although a tricky weed to get rid of, one will have to use pre and post-emergent to make sure this weed stays away. It's important to find herbicides that will only take care of the weed and not your lawn.

Annual Bluegrass / Poa

One of the most common weeds, Annual Bluegrass, can be a major problem in lawns and is a constant hassle for those maintaining their precious lawn. Its bright green color stands out like a sore thumb on your beautiful lawn. Though it might be hard to control the current Annual Bluegrass, preventative measures can be taken to prevent future growth.


Dandelions might bring a pop of color, but if you don’t desire having them in your yard or garden, they can be a pain to get rid of. Dandelions are a simple perennial and grow through the spread of seeds. Their roots can grow up to two feet long and can hide under the surface even after they have broken off causing constant growth.
