If you Spot Seed Heads, You Don’t Have to Worry

annual_bluegrass_seedheads1-1

Does your lawn look like it’s full of waving wheat or white topped weeds? Chances are, you are seeing seed heads.

Your lawn is full of millions of grass plants. At this time of year, some of those plants will try to reproduce  by growing seeds encased in seed heads. You may notice that some of these seed heads look white while some have a reddish cast to them. The appearance all depends on the variety of grass growing in your lawn.

If you see any seed heads spouting outside of your home, there is no cause for alarm or concern. Seed head formation is not indicative of any issues with your grass. It also will not actually reseed your lawn. The seed heads will go away naturally in the next 2-3 weeks. After that, you probably won’t see them again this season.
