4 Ways to Fight Weeds In Your Yard

 

Weeds can invade and takeover your yard. If you’ve ever witnessed this, you know exactly what we’re talking about! As weeds spread, they compete with your existing lawn for nutrients, water, and sunshine. The result is usually that your turf becomes stressed, the grass begins to die back, and you’re left with a nice, thick weed cover.

One common misconception about weed control is that the only way to fight weeds is to broadcast herbicide on your property. By planning ahead and keeping up with your routine lawn maintenance, you can fight more weeds with a lot less chemicals.

  1. Be proactive. Pre-emergent treatment is the best place to start, and that’s precisely why it’s the first step of our Green Select lawn care program. Being proactive is always the most effective, cost-efficient approach to weed prevention. Learn more about pre-emergent and how we can help by clicking here.
  1. Spot treat as needed. It’s nearly impossible to keep 100% of weeds out of a yard with just prevention, so spot treatments are a great way to get rid of weeds that do pop up. Spot treatments require significantly less herbicide than broadcast applications, making them not only effective, but more eco-friendly as well.
  1. Keep up with your fertilization and mowing. A healthy lawn is a thick lawn, and a thick lawn leaves little room for weeds. Mowing regularly and making sure that your lawn has the nutrients it needs will promote healthy growth. Want to know more about our fertilization program and mowing services? Click here.
  1. Hire a professional. You can certainly buy the products to do weed treatments at your local hardware store, but if you want some assurance that the job is being handled safely and correctly, hiring a professional is the way to go.
