Nothing says spring quite like running bare footed through a lawn of lavish green grass, however be sure to watch out for McDonough lawn burweeds! Lawn burweed, also known as spurweed or sticker weed, is a low growing winter annual that emerges when temperatures begin to warm up in the spring. During this time burweeds go through a phase of rapid growth, forming spine tipped burs at the leaves. The hooked burs from McDonough lawn burweeds are painful and unpleasant when stepped on. Maintaining a healthy dense lawn will help your turfgrass defend itself and outcompete the burweed for light, water, and nutrients.
