How to Identify the Right Species of Chickweed.

Chickweed is a winter weed native to regions in Europe and Asia. Records dated back to the 16th-century showed herbalists used this plant for medicinal purposes, mostly for digestive problems. It's safe to consume in moderation and has been seen in recipes and certain cultural dishes around the world.

Because of their white, star-shaped flowers, chickweed is commonly referred to as the "snow in the summer" since it blooms in the spring and continues through the fall. There are various chickweed species, including star chickweed and mouse-ear chickweed, so it's important to identify the right type to avoid using the wrong treatment method.

What Are the Growing Conditions for Chickweed?

Chickweed likes to grow in the damp, shady areas of your lawn and form thick mats that cover your grass. They also grow in areas with poor drainage.

The biggest reason for chickweed infestation comes from an unkempt and overgrown lawn. It allows the seeds to spread quicker and germinate in the sparse areas of your yard.

How to Effectively Remove Chickweed from Your Lawn.

Stubborn chickweed growth can be treated with pre-and post-emergent weed control when needed. Post-emergents should be added to the afflicted areas and may need to be reapplied after 7 to 10 days if the weed is especially problematic and persistent.

If the chickweed is a yearly problem, pre-emergent weed control is applied during the fall around September so the seedlings can't germinate from the cold weather.

One of the most effective ways to prevent future chickweed growth is to maintain a thick, healthy lawn to keep their seedlings from establishing in the soil. Deep, infrequent watering is also recommended since chickweed thrives in dampened soil.

Any newly seeded lawns need to mature before applying post-emergent weed control since the herbicide can harm and kill new grass growth.
