As the 2010 Lawn care season takes shape; here are a few guidelines for managing your crabgrass organically.  Crabgrass control can be accomplished for Organic lawns by taking these 5 Steps:

  1. Maintaining nutrient levels in the soil by using Organic Fertilizers and applying Corn Gluten Meal in early Spring.
  2. Seeding, Seeding, Seeding.  keeping a thick lawn will discourage crabgrass encroachment.
  3. Mow high, reduce the sunlight to the soil.  This will prevent the weed seeds from germinating.
  4. Mantain a proper PH level.  allowing the nutrients in the soil to be fully effective.
  5. Hand pull out heavily effected areas and be cautious not to shake and distribute seeds.
