Common Virginia Turf Weeds
Annual Bluegrass (Poa annua)
Annual bluegrass is a light green, low growing bunch grass. It’s easy to pick out in most lawns because of it’s light color. Annual bluegrass does well in lawns that are cut short. It also likes areas with low pH, compaction, poor drainage and/or shade. When turf is fertilized at improper times and given frequent light watering, tends to favor annual bluegrass. In irrigated lawns, annual bluegrass seeds can germinate and persist through the fall growing season.
Management controls begin with getting a soil test and adjusting the pH as needed. Improve surface drainage by aeration and topdressing if needed. Increase mowing height and overseed thin areas to limit the ability of this weed to establish in the lawn. Clean mowing equipment between using the mower in an area with annual bluegrass and annual bluegrass free area to avoid spreading seeds.
