Annual Bluegrass or Poa Annua, is one of the most common grassy winter weeds here in Texas. Annual Bluegrass is a light shade of green, has a shallow root system, and develops a short seed head early in the growing season. Annual Bluegrass dies off when the weather starts to get hot, primarily in the summer months, leaving behind bare spots in your lawn. Annual Bluegrass germinates in the early fall, with the seedlings growing throughout the fall and winter to flower in late winter, early spring. 

Preventing Annual Bluegrass

Pre-emergents won’t be able to stop annual bluegrass from spreading, but they do help slow it down. There are some other ways to help prevent Annual Bluegrass from invading your lawn and landscape. Annual Bluegrass thrives in shady, damp areas of your yard. You can help prevent creating damp areas by watering your lawn deeply but infrequently. Doing this will prevent their roots from growing deeper.

Taller grass helps prevent Annual Bluegrass. Setting your mower higher will help keep your grass tall enough to keep Annual Bluegrass at bay, and make your grass more drought tolerant. In addition to keeping your mower higher, fertilization will also help keep Annual Bluegrass from creating havoc in your lawn.
