Landscaping companies and landscape maintenance services experts know that the battle with weeds can seem never ending.  But armed with a little bit of knowledge, you can take a proactive approach and gain an upper hand.
In case you have a pre-existing weed infestation, landscaping companies can help get this under control while educating you on how to manage your yard in the future.  Our landscape maintenance services team have years of experience and tremendous success in eradicating even the peskiest of weeds.

What’s that weed?

A weed is any type of plant that is undesirable or unwelcome in your yard.  There are a few common weeds that we see in most yards that are infested, including:

  1. Virginia Buttonweed
  2. Geranium
  3. Crabgrass
  4. Dollarweed
  5. Spurge
  6. Clover
  7. Kyllinga
  8. NutSedge

Before you rush out to buy weed killer, it’s important to correctly identify the weed or weeds that you’re dealing with to ensure that the product you choose does in fact eradicate the problem.  Since weeds can blend in with grass, our landscape maintenance services team visits and walks your yard to determine how many and which weeds are present.  With the help of our extensive experience and our reference guides, we can accurately identify them, and also implement the right solution to exterminate them.

Landscape maintenance services for weed control

There are many off-the-shelf products that you can purchase for weed control.  Although spot control is widely suggested, landscaping companies recommend applying weed control products across your yard to maximize protection to avoid the possibility of weeds spreading and eliminate any weed infested areas that you may not have identified initially.
Scotts, Weed-and-Feed, MSM Turf, 2,4-D, or others can be effective on some of these weeds such as Geranium, Crabgrass, Dollarweed, Spurge, Clover, however others like Virginia Buttonweed, Kyllinga, and Nutsedge may need professional intervention.  It’s important to confirm that any product you apply in your yard will in fact eliminate all the different weeds that you are plagued by.  As always, when in doubt, call our landscape maintenance services team.  Our thorough 6-step annual maintenance program eliminates all these weeds successfully.  Also timing is important.  Just because you see a weed or two pop up, doesn’t mean that it’s the right time to treat the problem.  Putting out weed control too early in the season could result in other unforeseen problems in your yard.

Don’t wait till weeds have taken over your grass. Call our landscape maintenance services team on 337-313-3002 today to take back your lawn.
