When it comes to weed control services, homeowners who want to have the best lawn on the block simply have no tolerance for unsightly weeds. They want those invaders gone right away. They dream of a permanent solution to the crabgrass and dandelions they have to keep yanking or spraying in their yards. If you find yourself dreaming of a green, unblemished yard, then weed control is an integral part of a smart plan to help you achieve that goal.
If your aching back has had enough of the constant quest to banish weeds from your lawn, then keep reading. Here’s what you need to know about weed control services before you make a call to your local lawn care expert.
Which Kind of Weed Control Products Do You Need Right Now?
Weed control products fall into two categories. If you can already see the weeds growing in your lawn, it’s time for a broadleaf weed control application. These products are designed to kill weeds but not the grass surrounding them. However, using too much of these products can certainly damage the grass.
On the other hand, pre-emergent weed control products stop weed seeds from growing past germination. If it’s early in the growing season and you are starting to notice some little weed shoots coming up between your grass blades, a pre-emergent application could help knock down the weeds you see in the coming days and weeks.
Proper Lawn Care Is the Best Defense against Weeds
If you keep your lawn healthy and happy, you will see far fewer weeds. When your grass grows thick and robust, it will choke out the vast majority of weed seeds that are trying to sprout in your soil. With little or no water, air, or sunlight penetrating through your thick grass, those weeds don’t stand a chance. So get your lawn on a precise schedule for watering, fertilizing, aerating, and trimming in order to prevent weeds from growing in the first place.
