Tips for Controlling Springtime Weeds
How to Grow a Great, Green Lawn in the Jacksonville and St. Augustine area.
Controlling weeds in the spring time can be challenging, but with some applied knowledge and hands-on effort you can enjoy a healthy green lawn. Below are some tips for controlling springtime weeds.
A Healthy Lawn is the Best Defense
It’s a natural: as lawns come out of winter, helped by the application of fertilizers (appropriate or not), the accompanying weeds spring up and grow, too. And while weeds are easiest to treat in mild temperatures, the best defense against weeds is a thick and healthy lawn. And that requires the use of the correct herbicide to control each type of weed.
Accurately Identify Weeds is Key
Before you join the many homeowners that run right out to the nearest store to buy the newest and most touted herbicide, remember that accurate identification of the type of weed. While they don their yard-warrior armor and declare war on anything remotely looking like a weed, they can be killing the wrong thing…or, maybe worse, nothing. In fact some even attack bugs with their herbicide…after all, if it can kill weeds it certainly can kill bugs, right? Not really.
The Wrong Treatment Could Do More Harm Than Good
Often all you kill or burn when you treat your lawn with the wrong herbicide is the healthy grass, especially since not all weed products should be used on all types of grass. Think the manufacturer will tell you? Not necessarily…they want to sell their product. So, before you ride out and into battle, it’s up to you to read and follow all herbicide Warning instructions carefully.
But, if your lawn suffers from an overly eager, weed-spraying frenzy, we also offer sod replacement. It’s your back-up plan to assure Great Healthy Green lawn and victory.
