Prevent Weeds with these Winter Atlanta Lawn Care Tips
Here in Atlanta, we have the perfect conditions for so many weeds to thrive. Many winter weeds, such as annual bluegrass, can become a real problem. Thankfully, fall is the perfect time to begin treating for winter weeds.
Preventative Winter Weeds Treatment
During the fall months, we find that putting down pre-emergent goes a long way to help prevent invasive winter weeds. Pre-emergent fights weeds before they have a chance to germinate. By inhibiting a key enzyme, pre-emergent can stop weeds while they’re still seeds.
Right now is the perfect time to start fighting these winter weeds because they likely haven’t had time to establish themselves in your yard. If you wait just a couple more months, you’re likely to be fighting an uphill battle, so act now!
Aside from pre-emergent, this is one of the most important things you can do for your yard to fight weeds. By directly targeting the weeds that are already present, we can stop weeds before they have a foothold on your yard. Make sure to kill these weeds now before they take over.
One of the best ways to fight weeds is to make sure you have a healthy lawn. The stronger and healthier your grass is, the harder it is for weeds to take over. Regular fertilization can help your grass become more resistant to invaders. Likewise, mowing your yard at the proper height is very important. Many people cut their grass too low, creating thinner spots in their lawns. Not only does this look worse, but it also makes room for weeds to grow. When at the proper height, your grass itself can help shade the soil, preventing weeds from getting the light they need to thrive.
