Question of the Week

Question: “Are these weeds I’m seeing in my yard?” Travis B., Williamsburg

Answer: The answer is no. Most common turf grasses will attempt to produce seed heads in the spring. Yet as the temperature gets warmer, the seed heads will stop. Do not think that mowing at a lower height will halt seed head production. Make sure you mower has a sharp blade to not shred the stem. Fortunately, there is a very small percentage of plants in a lawn that will enter the reproductive stage in spring. Seed head production will cease in the coming weeks.
