Herbicides & Weed Control

There are many factors that come to having a beautiful, weed free lawn. One thing to know is you are in a constant battle with mother nature and weather conditions, so applying pre emergents and spot treating weeds with liquid weed killer are the best ways to control weeds and maintain a weed free lawn. Some weeds are perennial (come back from root) which will require a direct kill (liquid or granular, preferably liquid). Then there's annual weeds that die every year and drop seeds that germinate in early Spring. Weed seed can enter in many different ways; previous years weeds die and drop seeds, the wind can blow seeds from nearby, a bird could poop weed seed into your lawn, farmers field straw have weeds, and box store brands grass seed have weed seed. Annual weeds like crabgrass, chickweed, clover, etc. die in the Winter and drop seeds that can germinate by the time Marcgh/April rolls around, so it's important to use our Step #1 to start your lawn off right in the Spring, and more importantly follow up with these 3 easy maintainence steps

3 important things to rememer when trying to control weeds.

1. Apply TWO pre emergents, one in early Spring and another 6-8 weeks later. Steps #1 & #3 on our 6 step program has fertilizer with pre emergents mixed in, this prevents weed seed from germinating and fertilizes the grass. The difference between our pre emergents and box store brands is the innovativeness, strength and concentration. Our pre emergents are the newest chemicals at a higher concentration that last longer and work more effictevly. It's what they use on golf courses and by turf care professionals.

2. Keep a concentrated weed killer on hand (shown below) and spot treat weeds as they come up. An easy way to do this is to simply stay on top of it. Once a week or even once every few weeks, walk around the yard and spray the weeds dead with a liquid broadleaf weed killer. Granular weed killers also work but liquids give a more direct effective kill, and only get applied to areas with weeds rather than throughout the whole lawn causing additional stress to your healthy grass. You may have a grassy weed or unwanted weed every once in a while, which will require a different chemical that we will help you with.

3. Over seed EVERY Fall. Fall is the best time to over seed your lawn to repair summer damage and to thicken up your grass. Aerating, spreading grass seed, fertilizer and lime is your key to success to not only choke out weeds, but maintaining a healthy lawn. After a few years of this you should be thick and established, requiring less maintenance and a lighter over seed every fall.
