Post emergent weed control requests are one of the most common types of calls professional landscapers get. Tons of homeowners get frustrated every summer as they try to combat their weed problem. When you spot crabgrass or dandelions taking over your yard, you might instinctively reach for the weed killer and go to town. Next thing you know, your lawn is covered in brown patches from where you sprayed too much weed killer.
The next natural step is to start pulling weeds by hand. But if your lawn is of any considerable size, that project gets old real quick. So what would you rather spend your money on: a boatload of painkillers and chiropractic visits, or a professional landscaper who will apply post emergent weed control products correctly?
What is post emergent weed control?
It’s common to get confused about the difference between pre and post emergent weed control products and techniques. Post emergent weed control is different from pre emergent products in a very important ways:
- Pre emergent weed control products will prevent weed seeds from germinating and becoming mature plants. These products are best applied to Atlanta lawns in the springtime.
- Post emergent weed control products eradicate mature weed plants. These are sometimes also called broadleaf weed control, and can be applied to lawns just about any time weeds present themselves.
Why should I care about professional post emergent weed control?
When people try to handle their weed problems on their own, they tend to cause more harm than good. Few homeowners correctly apply the weed control products they get from the hardware store. The success rate with home remedies is hit or miss. And of course, yanking weeds by hand is backbreaking, miserable work.
Professional landscapers have products and tools that the average person doesn’t. Plus, they have the training and experience necessary to use those products and tools correctly and effectively. Hiring an expert is the easiest way to ensure the successful removal of your entire weed problem.

The experts will know exactly how to get you that lush, green, thick lawn that you dream of. Post emergent weed control is only one small but important part of a complete lawn care plan.
