The questions we get most often in the spring and summer are about dandelion weed control. What’s the best way to get rid of the dandelions that are already growing? How do I prevent more from popping up in the future? These weed seeds seem to be everywhere. As a result, it seems like no lawn is immune to their infestation.
Fortunately, professional landscapers are familiar with the easiest techniques and products for getting rid of dandelions. So, here are tips from the pros on the hard way and the easy way to handle dandelion weed control:
The Hard Way
Dandelions are broadleaf perennials with taproots that extend 2-3 feet into the ground. Consequently, pulling them out by hand is backbreaking work that provides an immediate improvement in your lawn. However, those taproots will continue to send up new sprouts until the root is entirely eradicated. That task usually calls for chemical intervention in the form of dandelion weed control products.
The Easy Way
Expert dandelion weed control begins with a broadleaf weed killer. These products wipe out the existing dandelion plants without damaging your turf. So, pre-emergent weed control products should be applied at another time to prevent dandelion seeds in the soil from germinating. As a result, this two-pronged approach to dandelion weed control provides complete and lasting dandelion prevention through the spring and summer.
