Description: Round green leaves. White to lavender flowers.
Peak Season: Late summer (July - August)
Mallow is characterized by round, lobed leaves which are often confused with ground ivy. The leaf is attached to the stem from the back while ground ivy is connect from the center with a hairy top.
From May to October the flowers will bloom. They range from white to lavender in color.
When will I see Mallow?
Mallow can be a perennial (it lives for years) or an annual (it lives through the season) depending on the species. Therefore, you may see it in your lawn throughout the year (from early spring to late fall) peaking during July and August.
How do I get rid of Mallow and how long will it take?
Mallow is one of the harder weeds to kill with a selective herbicide, but it can be done. Apply this every 5 to 6 weeks. You should start to see damage and withering to the leaves after the first or second application, with the plant completely killed after 6 consecutive applications. If you don't want to wait for the whole summer, you may consider weeding them by hand.
How do I prevent Mallow from infiltrating my lawn?
While there is no way to perfectly keep out all mallow, there are a few things you can do to help prevent new growth in your lawn. These include:
Your lawn will look its greenest 3 weeks after an application. If it’s not green to your satisfaction be sure to give us a call and we’ll re-spray at no additional charge.
All existing broadleaf weeds will be damaged after 2 consecutive applications. Hard to kill weeds, such as spurge and morning glory, take 6 consecutive applications to kill their root systems. We also spray a pre-emergence herbicide twice to help prevent spurge, crabgrass, and other summer annual weeds.
If you see brown spots anytime during our service for your lawn, please call immediately. We’ll be out to take care of the problem at no additional charge. This includes insecticide, fungicide or information for drought.
100% NO RISK Guarantee!
You’ll never be locked into a long-term commitment. It’s totally application-to- application and is up to you to decide if you're getting more than enough value for your hard-earned money.
