What is Winter Grass

Tufty, soft, light green grass with masses of seeds occurring all over the weed that will eventually overtake the lawn in winter. 

It seeds in Autumn, Winter and Spring and dies off throughout prolonged hot periods in the Summer. This leaves a weakened lawn that will become infected with even more Winter Grass the following cool season. It sets seed even at very low cutting heights.


How to protect your plants

Spray with a Winter Grass killer selective turf herbicide or remove by hand.
