There are several things that go into keeping your yard healthy and growing correctly. Not taking these necessary steps can prevent your grass from reaching its most optimal conditions. Properly fertilizing your lawn and landscape helps to ensure that they are capable of fighting off disease and pests. Weed control is yet another step you should take to maintain the health of your grass. Weeds can rapidly consume an entire yard if left uncontrolled. Here are a few reasons why you lawn requires regular weed control…
Pre-emergent Weed Control Keeps Weeds from Growing
If you’ve never treated your lawn for weeds, it is likely that they are types growing. In our Southwestern Ohio, we have common weeds like dandelions, chickweed, crabgrass, spurge, henbit, broadleafs, and more. By applying a pre-emergent treatment, you can kill them before they begin to grow. Our herbicides are formulated to only attack weeks so you can rest assured that your grass and other plants will be free of harm.
Weeds Take Away Vital Nutrients from Your Plants and Grass
Weeds are able to grow more rapidly than your grass and plants. This means that they are absorbing the nutrients from soil and reach the sunlight before your grass is able to. Plants require potassium, nitrogen, and phosphorus, which they get from the soil. When weeds have access to those first, it can weaken your plants. Weak plants are usually unable to fight off disease or pests make them more at risk for dying. Allowing weeds to live in your yard creates a nutrient imbalance in your soil. Since weeds grow so fast, they often take more of one nutrient over another. When that occurs, it can impact all the grass and plants that are growing in your yard.
Weed Control Saves Time and Protects Your Investment
As a homeowner or business owner, you’ve invested in your lawn and landscape. Weed control applications can help you protect your investment. Weeds suffocate plants and grass as they take away vital nutrients from them. Weed control treatments save you time and keep you from having to spend your valuable time pulling weeds.
Eliminating Weeds Helps Prevent Potential Dangers
Some weeds are poisonous. If consumed by your cats or dogs, they could face avoidable health conditions like indigestion, rashes, and vomiting. These may lead to a hefty veterinarian bill or even a loss of a pet. Flowering weeds can attract bees and wasps which increases your chance of being stung. Weed control can prevent these issues from arising.
