What is Goosegrass?

What is Goosegrass?

Spring and summer months mean big bad WEEDS! Some of the worst ones in these seasons are burweeds (Soliva pterosperma), crab grass and goosegrass.
We’ll tackle one topic each month and June’s subject is goosegrass (Eleusine Indica).
Goosegrass loves the heat and only sprouts when temperatures reach 60 degrees or hotter, hence the spring and summer emergence.

How to Spot It!

Here are 4 main ways:

  • It has broader leaves than Bermuda and Tall Fescue
  • The stems are round at the base of the weed, near the soil
  • It shows a mixture of a green and yellow tint
  • If you’re catching the weeds later on, the stems can get up to 12 inches long

Do you need help creating a plan of action to eliminate your weeds?
