3 Reasons Fall Is the Best Time to Take on Weed Control, Enterprise, Alabama

Weeds can be a real headache for homeowners—no matter how large or compact your lawn may be. When it comes to weed control, there’s no magic method of elimination, but there are some tips that will help immensely. Here, the team at Lucky Lawn Service of Enterprise, AL, shares three reasons fall is the ideal time to get rid of weeds.

3 Reasons to Tackle Weed Control This Fall

1. The Sunshine Is Fading

Weeds enjoy the summer heat, especially if you live in an area that gets frequent summer showers. Warmth also makes weeding more of a hassle, only for them to come back a short while later. As the sun drifts lower in the sky during the fall months, weeds will lose the strength they normally gain from the sun and rain, making your lawn treatment all the more efficient.

2. The Cool Air Will Work for You

As weeds grow during the spring and summer, they draw nutrients from the ground up toward their leaves and flowers. As temperatures start to drop, weeds draw their energy into their roots to build a reserve for the winter. When you apply treatment in the fall, the weeds will draw the chemicals into their roots, attacking the infestation at the source. The ideal outside temperature is usually somewhere around 60 degrees Fahrenheit, but check your herbicide for manufacturer recommendations.

3. There Will Be Less to Do in the Spring
