1. The Dandelion
Dandelions have green leaves that are edged with ‘teeth’ that grow mostly flat to the ground. These bright yellow flowers will fade to form a white puffball. They will appear in yards that aren’t as healthy as they could be and most often in the spring and the fall.
This weed germinates in the spring and will show up in summer in the bare areas of your lawn or in dry spots. It’s will show up in a crab-like circle and has a blue-green tint to it’s leaves.
