Homeowners who take pride in keeping a beautiful garden are always concerned about weeds on their lawns. Weeds like crabgrass are very aggressive, and once they make their way into a lawn, they soon take over the entire area and even flower beds, making the garden look overgrown and unmaintained.
There are at least 30 different species of crabgrass. However, the most common species in North America are Hairy crabgrass (Digitaria sanguinalis) and smooth crabgrass (Digitaria ischaemum). Both species resemble each other, and control methods are the same.

Bermuda grass (Cynodon dactylon) is a warm-season grass and is popular among homeowners for making a great lawn. Not only it’s drought tolerant and non-fussy about the soil type, but also, it’s highly tolerant to traffic, including that of kids and pets, and feels good on one’s feet. It grows well in southern regions but does well also northward up to USDA hardiness zones 5 and 6.
This vining grass spreads fast from its roots and forms a uniform lawn. It starts growing in late spring and continues to grow actively all through the summer.
Its growth slows down in fall when temperatures drop down, and ultimately it goes dormant in the winter.
