A healthy lawn can compete against mouse-ear chickweed if the grass is not mowed too short or too frequently.

    Note: Cutting it back will reduce its availability to pollinators. When growing without competition from other plants, common chickweed can produce approximately seeds and it takes 7 to 8 years to eradicate. The diminutive size of the plant also makes it easy to miss allowing it to scatter its seeds unnoticed. Dandelion greens are a nutritious superfood.
