Self-management of weeds in your lawn is a hassle, especially during this time of the year and later on in the fall. When left untreated, the weeds quickly take over your lawn and affect the health and growth of your turf-grass. Even if you treat the weeds as they appear with a post-emergent weed control, it becomes a daunting task to keep up. The best way to combat this issue is timely applications of pre-emergent weed control so that they do not get a chance to become a nuisance in your lawn in the first place.
What is Pre-Emergent Weed Control?
Pre-emergent weed control is designed to act as a root inhibitor that will in turn suppress those weeds from sprouting during the spring and early summer months. This is usually applied as a broadcast treatment over the entire lawn at certain points of the year, usually early spring and late fall.
When is the best time to apply a Pre-Emergent to the lawn?
It is imperative to get the pre-emergent down before weeds germinate and begin sprouting. It is definitely better to be a little early with a pre-emergent treatment than it is to apply it once the weeds have sprouted. This time frame would be typically the first couple of months of the year for growing season weeds, and in the late fall for winter weed suppression.
How can Aggieland Green help you with Pre-Emergent Weed Control?
Our strategically timed pre-emergents keep weeds suppressed overall, but we also include spot treatment for weeds that emerge from the soil during the season. Certain weeds, such as nutsedge unfortunately are not suppressed through the use of pre-emergent, but many other weeds are. By suppressing weeds, we are able to encourage your turf to grow without the constant competition of invasive weeds.
Our team at Aggieland Green is well trained in the art of weed control, as well as fertilization, preventing lawn damaging insects, as well as controlling fungus and disease in your lawn. We have the knowledge and expertise to solve your weed control problems and other lawn care issues without the hassle of trying to figure how to do it on your own or hiring the wrong person who is not as well versed on those aspects of lawn healthcare.
