When it comes to maintaining a lawn that keeps the neighbors jealous, finding the best weed control is a huge factor in the battle for best lawn.

Besides watering, mowing, and fertilization, controlling weeds in your yard can become a summer long process.  The tips below are meant to aid you in your lawn keeping and give you more time to spend enjoying your yard.

So What’s the Best Weed Control?

Weeds compete with your grass for water, nutrients and space.  Certain species of weeds are harder to control than others, and may require spray on applications to hinder and eventually stop their growth.

Keeping a thick lush lawn will make it harder for weeds to sprout and grow and allow you to selectively treat areas when weeds sprout up.

If weeds to sprout up, move quickly to remove them before they have a chance to spread.  Catching weeds early in the spring before they germinate is the best way to minimize their effect.

When weeds become too much to remove by hand, a de-thatching tool can be used to rake them from the grass (Creeping Charlie is a common weed in which de-thatching can produce good results).

Chemical Herbicides and Weed Control.

If pulling weeds by hand is not an option and your yard is overrun, a bi-weekly or monthly application of weed killer or herbicides may be your only hope to restore your lawn.

Herbicides have come along way over the years and are scientifically created to be safer, more effective and produce better results than ever before.
