Here in the Atlanta area, homeowners are always asking their lawn services, “What’s the best weed control for my yard in particular?” If your grass ever goes dormant, it doesn’t last long. Our extended growing season makes weed control practically a year-round project if you want to have an impressive lawn. And to host the best cookouts and backyard parties on the block, you have to start with a thick, green lawn.
Everybody seems to have their opinion about weed control products and methods. Some people swear by their hardware store solution while others are totally committed to organic alternatives. Here at Kemko, we tend to group all of these weed control concepts into three categories. Keep reading to discover some good, better, and best weed control for your yard.
Good Weed Control
If your lawn isn’t thick with dandelions and crabgrass, then you can probably get away with yanking your weeds by hand. A hand trowel and some gardening gloves are all you need for effective weed control – no expensive equipment or chemicals necessary. On the contrary, you probably don’t want to use this technique if you have an acre lot (or bigger). But the backbreaking nature of this method makes it a major turn-off for many people.
Better Weed Control
To avoid stooping over and save yourself some time, you could hire a professional lawn care company to apply chemical weed treatments to your lawn. Different products can be used to not only eradicate existing weeds, but they can also prevent weed seeds from germinating. Experienced pros will only use EPA-approved products, and they will know exactly how to apply the chemicals to avoid damaging your turf.
Best Weed Control
Many homeowners don’t know that the very best weed control is a thick, healthy lawn. This truth can pose a conundrum for many people: how do you achieve a healthy lawn if it’s already full of weeds? First you get rid of the weeds, and then you build up the turf so that weeds and weed seeds are choked out of air, water, and sunlight. Once your grass is in tip-top shape, it will do an awfully good job of handling the weeds all on its own.
