Even the most beautiful lawn is likely to have weeds appear at some point. Keeping your lawn weed free takes more than just having a couple of herbicide treatments each year. Nature finds ways to make sure something starts growing in any lawn that has become too thin. Bare patches of soil quickly fill up with broad-leaf and grassy weeks of all sorts. That’s why a healthy, thick stand of grass is the very best weed prevention there is.
All About Weeds
The two basic kinds of weeds in most lawns are broad-leaf and grasses. Dandelions and clover are broad-leaf weeds, while crabgrass is a grass type. There are also perennial and annual weeds with very different life cycles. Summer weeds have a think, waxy coating that makes them the toughest to control. We have specialized approaches for controlling the various types of weeds common to lawns.
Longer grass cuts off the light and warmth that weeds need to get started.
Whenever weed control is applied, the results are much better when the weeds are actively growing. So, water if necessary at treatment time.
Regular fertilization is the best way to produce a healthy, thick stand of grass that can fight off invading weeds.
Working together we can keep your lawn beautiful and healthy while keeping most of the weeds out too. Give us a call or contact us with any questions you may have about weed control or any other lawn concerns
