It’s the time of the year when our lawn care company starts preparing for springtime lawn care services for home and property owners. As spring nears, blooms awaken, and with them come the weeds. It’s especially important to start planning your weed control and management strategy now!
Lawn care services for the DIY-er
Many homeowners and property owners opt to perform their own lawn care services including weed control and exterior pest control. From manually eliminating a small weed population to buying a spreader and tackling a larger growth, there are many granule and liquid based pre and post-emergent options available in stores today.
Although it may seem like an easy undertaking, we’ve had many a homeowner come to us when things get challenging. Being a lawn care company that’s been around for years we’ve seen many weed control plans gone awry. From incorrect chemical proportions that result in burnt yards to over or under spraying, things can sometimes get out of hand. With a few simple tips you’ll be just fine.
- Know your weed – it’s important to identify what type of weed or weeds you’re tackling and what stage of growth they’re in. Pre-emergent is best applied before weeds take root, but once they’ve arrived, then you may need to apply post emergent instead.
- Know your soil – a weed can give you clues about your soil. Moss growth indicates poor drainage or even low soil fertility or compact soil, whereas dandelions thrive in very acidic soil. Getting a soil test done can not only help you alleviate your weed problems but also give your welcome plants a proper environment for growth.
- What to use and when – Plan your weed and insect control. Applying too many chemicals at one go can be detrimental for your lawn. Keep in mind it’s not just about controlling the unwanted, it’s also about nourishing your garden.
