A weed is known as “a plant in the wrong place.” Weeds detract from the beauty of lawns due to the contrast in color and texture between the desired grass plants and the weeds. In addition, weeds compete with grass for available water and nutrients, usually resulting in thinning of desirable grass, as well as disease and insect infestation.
There are two important factors in determining what method to use in managing weeds, and we are the weed experts in your local area. First, in order to eliminate weeds you must identify the type of weed. Second, is the actual life cycle of the weed. Annuals have a one-year life cycle, biennials have a two-year life cycle, and perennials live longer than two years. Perennials are the most difficult weeds to eradicate because they reproduce and spread by fleshy underground roots.
A thick lawn is the best method for preventing dandelions, crabgrass and other broadleaf weeds in the lawn. Mow your lawn at a high setting on your mower, and follow a regular feeding program to achieve a lawn that is thick enough to keep weeds from establishing in the first place.
