Do you have grasses or weeds that are difficult to identify? We have a detailed field guide to help you dig deeper into potential lawn care issues.

Broadleaf Weeds

Broadleaf weeds are aggressive but common lawn weeds. They’re easy to spot because they look nothing like grass—that’s because their biological makeup is different from grass. But it’s these organic differences that make it possible to use a broadleaf weed killer (herbicide) to control the weeds without harming your lawn.

Grassy Weeds

Grassy weeds may look like grass, but make no mistake—they’re weeds. Actually, anything you don’t want growing in your dream yard—including other types of grasses—are lawn weeds. The problem here is that most grassy weeds (except for sedges and rushes) are in the same family as turf grass, meaning mowing, watering and nourishment actually help these weeds grow. This makes control without harming your lawn difficult. Identification and prevention are key.

Grass Basics

The secret to having an inviting lawn that’s the envy of the neighborhood is this: There is no secret. It’s all about learning the three basics of lawn maintenance—soil, mowing and watering—putting in the work and then enjoying the rewards. Of course, a few extra lawn care tips from the pros at TruGreen® won’t hurt—we won’t tell your neighbors if you won’t.

Lawn Pests

Out of the 1 million species of insects in the world, only about 30 are lawn-damaging insects, so proper control relies on proper lawn insect identification. Examining lawn damage and the suspect’s biological features helps distinguish actual lawn pests from the other bugs, spiders and mites that can be beneficial to your yard. Once the culprit is identified, protect your lawn and family from tiny bites with a four-step approach to insect control.

Turf Grasses

A beautiful, well-maintained lawn doesn’t just make for a better life outside—green, dense grass can also enhance your home's appearance, value and environment. Your yard’s grass type—professionally referred to as your species of turf grass—makes a difference. Maximize your lawn’s appeal while minimizing turf grass management by choosing the right kind of turf grass for your climate.

Lawn Diseases

Diagnosing lawn diseases can be difficult because the signs can sometimes resemble damage from insects or drought. The difference is that lawn disease symptoms are specifically caused by a pathogen like lawn fungus. In order for a lawn disease to occur, a few things have to line up: Your yard’s grass type has to be susceptible to the type of pathogen that’s present along with the exact environmental conditions that that particular lawn disease thrives in. If any one of these factors are off, chances are you’re not dealing with lawn disease.
