Dallisgrass is a difficult to control weed in dallas, ga. This difficult to control weed will germinate in the spring and summer months, and go dormant in the winter months. Dallisgrass thrives in clay and sandy soil and is a rather low growing weed that will tend to grow quicker than other types of grasses. Dallisgrass grows in clumps and is alot of times mistaken for crabgrass. While pre-emergents may be somewhat helpful to controlling dallisgrass they usually aren’t very effective in lawns that have had dallisgrass already, as well as other problems with this weed in the past due to the amount of seedheads that a plant can produce. Fall is a good time to use a post emergent on dallisgrass to help reduce and supress this difficult to control weed. Most importantly, keeping a healthy, well maintained lawn that is thick will help resist this weed. With smaller infestations it is best to pull out the weed being sure to remove all of the root and letting the turf fill back in naturally.
