What is that purple flowered weed in my yard?

Spring is a great time of year.  The birds are singing, the weather is warming, and the flowers are blooming.  Annual broad leaf weeds also start germinating in lawns in Coweta County and Fayette County Georgia this time of year.  One of the more common weeds that we see in the Newnan, Peachtree City, Senoia and Sharpsburg Georgia area is henbit .  It is an incredibly invasive weed that can grow to 12 inches tall.  It usually produces 2-4 stalks with a vibrant purple flower on the tips of the stalk.  No doubt this plant has a very beautiful bloom, but its place is not inside a well maintained lawn.  Our custom broad leaf weed treatment program helps to prevent this weed from germinating and eliminates it if it gets by a pre emergent treatment.  For more information on how we can provide you with the lawn you have always wanted, visit us at www.mathisoutdoors.com or call us at 770-301-5643henbitHenbit
