The desert southwest has unique plants that require unique care. Use this guide to figure out how to manage some of the most common Arizona weeds before they wreak havoc on your yard:

Crabgrass and Bermuda Grass

These weeds have parallel veins and long, thin leaves. If you notice a few of these popping up in a certain area of your yard, you should remove them as soon as possible so they do not take away valuable water and nutrients from the plants that you want in your yard. If you are having difficulty controlling these weeds, you might want to call for some professional help.

Cheese Weed and Bur Clover

These weeds have intersecting veins and usually have wider leaves. The leaves are often in an oval shape, which makes them easy to spot. Although they look relatively harmless, they can quickly overtake your yard. Call a pest control company to come out and control the weeds in your backyard before they cause damage to other plants and trees.

Fringed Pigweed

This weed is an annual plant that has branches that can grow up to 3 feet high. Fringed pigweed often has egg-shaped leaves and smooth edges. This kind of weed often grows in washes or other dry, sandy soil. It is commonly found throughout Southern Arizona. It usually blooms between July and October. If you have any fringed pigweed in your yard, it is very important to get rid of it before it starts to spread throughout your outdoor area.
