How to Fix an Ugly Lawn in 5 Easy Steps

Weeds like these make a lot of seeds. They get picked up by the wind and planted far and wide.

Weeds are taking over a newly seeded patch of lawn

You can reduce weed growth in lawns significantly by following good management practices and understanding weed growth patterns. Improper fertilization, irrigation or mowing practices make it easy for weeds to invade even an established lawn. Identify the type of weeds plaguing your yard before beginning a control program. Annual grassy weeds such as bluegrass, crabgrass and goose grass grow, produce seed and die within one season. They return the following year if this cycle is not interrupted.

“Weeds are simply plants that are able to compete well with the plants we want so they tend to grow a little faster and a little better than the vegetable does,” Miller explained. The grasses in your lawn are also perennials.

My daughter had a large oak tree cut down, and the front yard was a mess. So they filled in with some topsoil and planted grass. Now the new grass is growing, but so are the weeds. Apparently, that topsoil was full of weed seeds. Should they try to pull the broadleaf weeds that are growing or should they just mow them down? The weeds are growing much faster than the grass and it is driving her crazy to see that weedy front lawn. Could they keep cutting it and then in the fall put on a weed and feed product?

Lawn weeds can be one of the more troubling aspects of lawn care. Most weeds are opportunistic and will take advantage of any weakness in the turf. Thinner areas of grass, grass that is mowed too short and even infertile soil make perfect opportunities for weeds to grow. Weeds compete with grass for space, nutrients and water. Many weeds grow much faster than turfgrass and can quickly get out of control if measures are not taken to stop them. At the very least, they detract from the quality and appearance of your lawn. The conditions that allowed for weeds to flourish must be corrected or they will continually be a problem.
