Step 1 Identify Crabgrass
Crabgrass is an annual weed that grows during the spring and summer. It’s a light lime-green in colour, broader-looking than most grass and can even have stalks in its more mature stages. Because it’s an annual weed, it will germinate and spread if left unchecked. Since crabgrass can produce upwards of 150,000 seeds in one season, it spreads fast in lawns that are stressed out, dry or bare.
