Basket Grass, also known as Woodgrass, Annual Jewgrass or Mary’s Grass, is commonly found in moist, shady environments. This weed can be identified by its wavy leaves, which feature a white midvein that divides each leaf into two uneven halves. Basket grass germinates in the early spring, at approximately the same time of year as crabgrass, and it flowers in the fall.
Two to three weeks after basket grass germinates, it enters its cotyledon stage. When it first begins to grow, it will appear very similar to crabgrass. As basket grass matures, it grows several leaves, and the runner can grow to as long as 27″.
As with most weeds, basket grass is very persistent. It can be prevented using the same pre-emergent herbicides you would use against crabgrass, although weeds often find ways to grow despite the precautions people take. You can hand pick basket grass, but if your weed problem is widespread, or if there are other weeds in your lawn, it’s much simpler to use a post-emergent herbicide.
