3 Common Weeds & How to Control Them

weedsIs your lawn plagued by common weeds? Fortunately, we can help! It’s true that a healthy lawn is the best weed deterrent there is. That’s why our weed control service is here to keep your lawn healthy, fight off those unwanted weeds, and ensure your lawn continues to look fantastic.

Check out three of the most common weeds and how to prevent them from spreading.

Crabgrass

This frustrating weed is all too common in the South. It grows between cracks and in grass. If you don’t take care of crabgrass immediately, the weed will spread and become more difficult to eliminate. If you have crabgrass, a pre-emergent herbicide can kill this weed. However, if you’re planning to seed or re-seed your yard, you must wait at least two months after you’ve sprayed the herbicide.

Dandelion

Most everyone loved spotting dandelions as a child, plucking them from the ground, and making a wish while blowing the seeds away. However, these wish-makers are actually weeds. If you choose to pull them up, make sure you get their deep roots so they don’t grow back.

White Clover

When your soil is full of nutrients, that’s a good sign of a healthy lawn. Unfortunately, the white clover loves rich soil too. This weed has three lobed leaves with white flowers sprouting from the center. If you see them in your lawn, remove them as soon as possible. You can do this by raking them, then mowing.
