Weeds overtaking my lawn
I believe the weed taking over my lawn is the hairy bittercrest (see attachments). Just wanted to confirm that. What is the best way to get rid of this weed from my lawn. If I use some type of week killer, how long should I wait to plant grass seed?
Montgomery County Maryland
This looks like chickweed (Stellaria sp.). It is an annual plant that thrives in cool weather and is most often found in moist shady areas (but can move into other areas as well). Chickweed is native to Europe and Asia and is common now in most areas of Maryland.
You can seed now.
