Tips for Tackling Broadleaf Weeds
Are broadleaf weeds taking over your yard?
Are you tired of spending countless hours weeding every spring and summer?
Aside from their unsightly appearance, broadleaf weeds can jeopardize the health of your lawn by soaking up nutrients that would otherwise keep your grass healthy.
Common broadleaf weeds like dandelions are tough to get rid of. We can help! Our tips for broadleaf weed control:
- Mowing height: While short grass may have the crisp look of a golf course, it also creates a foundation for future lawn issues like broadleaf weed invasion. Repeated short cuts can cause stress to your turf and weaken the reserves that provide defense against weeds.
- Fertilization schedule: To make sure you have a well-balanced fertilization program, make sure to replenish nutrients in your soil. Make sure to schedule fertilizer applications for periods when the grass is actively growing.
- Preemergence herbicide: The best time to apply a preemergent herbicide is in early spring. That way, the chemicals are able to take effect before perennial weeds like dandelions and broadleaf plantain begin to produce seeds.
- Hire a professional company for weed control: The best way to ensure you get rid of pesky weeds is to hire a company to regularly treat your lawn. Two applications per year can make sure your lawn looks its best and stays healthy and lush year-round.
