Your property may be under siege by weeds. Weeds crowd out healthy turf grass and can leave your property looking poorly maintained. When selecting the correct lawn weed control measures, we offer a variety of specialty herbicides such as crabgrass control, pre-emergent herbicides, nutsedge control, and broadleaf weed control.Whether part of a comprehensive lawn care program or a custom-built program, we are capable of helping with your weed control solutions.
The best defense is a good offense! Keep your lawn thick and mow no lower than 3″. This will help to make it more difficult for most weeds to grow and will also encourage better growing conditions for your lawn.
Crabgrass Control: This annual weed is a common problem in most lawns. Crabgrass will typically begin emerging in late May to early June, and grow throughout the hot months of summer in sunny areas. As this weed matures, it will choke out turfgrass, and drop thousands of seeds in the soil for next year’s crop of crabgrass. Mature stands of crabgrass will choke out turfgrass and leave large vacant spots after it dies off from frosting in late fall. By using pre-emergent and post-emergent herbicides, crabgrass is treatable. This weed control is included in our lawn care programs and also offered as an a la carte service.
Broadleaf Weed Control: There are dozens of varieties of broadleaf weeds that grow in lawns in our area. These weeds will germinate in different times of the season, depending upon their variety. Whether winter annuals, summer annuals, or perennial broadleaf weeds, there are different recommendations for controlling these weeds. Broadleaf weeds are best controlled while actively growing, shortly after they emerge. Because of weed pressure occurring throughout the year, it is advisable to have multiple broadleaf weed control visits on a lawn care program. Our lawn care programs do a good job of addressing the common weeds that are more easily to control such as dandelion, chickweed, white clover, henbit, plantain, etc. Harder to control weeds such as ground ivy, violets, oxalis, thistles, and others will take repeated efforts year after year to reduce populations. This weed control is included in our lawn care programs and also offered as a la carte services.
Nutsedge Control: Nutsedge is a common weed that will start to emerge in our area in late spring and grow throughout the summer. Selective herbicides exist to control nutsedge. This weed is very persistent and control efforts will typically control existing plants, but repeat applications should be made as this weed will regenerate and appear again throughout summer. Because of this weed’s persistence during the season and subsequent years, it is recommended as a part of a proactive lawn care program including repeat visits.
