The Best Lawn Care Practices for Summer Weed Control, Enterprise, Alabama

Now that summer is in full swing, lawn care maintenance is going to be all about weed control. Novice gardeners are often overwhelmed by what is needed to eliminate these pesky yard additions, and they are usually unsure which lawn maintenance strategies will help them achieve their goals.

3 Tips to Eliminate Weeds This Summer 

Identify the Types You’re Looking For

weed controlThe first step in weed control is understanding the types you may find in your yard. Each geographic region is prone to a unique set of weeds, and dealing with each of these will require different landscape design and maintenance strategies. The two main categories are grassy and broadleaf weeds. Grassy weeds include crabgrass and quackgrass, while broadleaf weeds include knotweed and ivy.

Investigate Control Options

Each weed category will respond differently to various techniques. Working with an experienced lawn care provider is the best step you can take toward effective weed control and will ensure that you choose the best treatment option for your particular lawn needs. The two main options include cultural techniques, like hand weeding, and chemical techniques, like weed killers. For most lawns, a combination of the two methods will be the best course of action.

Practice Preventative Care

Like all areas of home maintenance, preventative care goes a long way toward eliminating the problem and reducing the amount of time and money you need to spend on tackling the issue when it arises. The best preventative course of action you can take is to lay down weed preventers in the early spring, and then follow up with another application eight weeks later. Mark these dates on your calendar because premature or late application yields significantly reduced results.
