Apply a pre-emergent herbicide to your lawn prior to an annual bluegrass breakout to prevent the weed from growing.
- Remove existing solitary plants
Hand pull or use a hoe to remove existing annual bluegrass plants with their roots to prevent regrowth.
- Wash lawn equipment after each use
Maintain the habit of washing lawn equipment frequently to help eliminate the spread of annual bluegrass seeds.
- Apply a postemergent herbicide
Make sure any postemergent herbicide can be used on your turf species to prevent killing your entire lawn.
