Weeds can easily ruin the appearance of your lawn or property thanks to their ability to spread quickly. The following are some of the most common weeds in Carlsbad.

Bull Thistle

Bull thistle, also known as a common thistle or bur thistle, tends to grow near fences, in ditches, along roadsides and near streams. This weed grows to be anywhere from 1 to 6 feet tall and usually has purple flowers. Bull thistle needs to be properly identified, since it can be confused with native thistles.


Cheatgrass is an annual grass that you might find in fields and ditches, crop fields, grasslands and other open areas. This weed, also known as June grass or bronco grass, has leaves that are greenish or purple and grow to be several inches long. Cheatgrass has spikes on it that range in color from red and purple to green.

Jointed Goat Grass

Jointed goat grass is an annual winter grass that you’re likely to find in grasslands and crop fields, as well as along roadsides. This weed can grow up to 2 feet tall and has cylindrical spikes on it. The leaves of this weed can grow to be more than 5 inches long.
