Proper identification of grassy weeds is a vital skill that turfgrass managers must possess and continually improve. Grassy weed identification depends heavily on the vegetative characteristics of the plant and time of year. The first step in turf weed control is a turf management program that produces a dense and healthy turf. This can be accomplished by growing an adapted turfgrass variety to your conditions and by properly fertilizing, mowing, aerating, overseeding, and watering.

Crabgrass is a warm season annual grassy weed that is common in Minnesota lawns. Read our tips for controlling crabgrass in Minnesota to keep your lawn healthy and happy!

Ground ivy and wild violets are the hardest broadleaf weeds in Minnesota to control. Ground ivy and wild violets are aggressive, low-growing, cool season perennials that favor shaded, moist areas. They are most active in the spring and fall. Because turf is usually thinner in shaded areas their ability to thrive in those conditions contributes to the problem. Wild violets are hard to control because their extensive underground root system enables them to spread through use of rhizomes. Ground ivy spreads on the top of the ground by using stolons or runners very similar to strawberries. Ground ivy and violets have a waxy coating on their leaves which can repel herbicides. This makes them both hard to eradicate; however, ground ivy is typically easier to control than wild violet. 

Thistles are warm season broadleaf weeds that can be a nuisance in many Minnesota lawns. There are two different types of thistle: perennial and biennial. The most common biennial thistles in our area are the bull and plumeless. The most common perennial thistle in our area is the Canadian thistle. Biennial thistles can be controlled by digging and cultivation; however, this is more difficult with perennial thistles because they spread by creeping underground stems (rhizomes).

Broadleaf weeds, of which there are many common types, are among the most bothersome pest in lawns. The development and maintenance of a dense, healthy lawn is the best control strategy for reducing the amount of broadleaf weed problems developing in home lawns.
