A smooth, flat-stemmed, grassy weed forms a rosette in the lawn, resembling the spokes of a wheel. The blades, 1/5 inch wide and 2 to 10 inches long, are slightly hairy near the base. Seed stalks 2 to 6 inches tall grow from the tops of the stems. Goosegrass resembles crabgrass, but it is darker green, germinates later in the spring to mid-summer, and doesn''t root at the stem joints. It grows an extensive root system that is difficult to pull up. Goosegrass invades thin areas of the lawn where the soil is compacted and infertile.
Reduce soil compaction. Maintain a healthy, dense lawn by following recommended lawn care practices.
