3 Essential Tips for Fall Weed Control, Enterprise, Alabama

With the arrival of autumn, you might think the only lawn maintenance you’ll need involves a rake. The reality is that many weeds continue to grow during the fall. Taking steps to ensure proper weed control now will help your lawn look great as the weather continues to cool—and especially when warm temperatures return in the spring.

Top 3 Tips for Fall Weed Control

1. Use Pre- and Post-Emergent Herbicide

Fall is the prime growing season for winter annuals such as chickweed and henbit. Perennial weeds also begin preparing their roots for winter during this time. To eliminate both types of weeds, apply pre- and post-emergent herbicides to your lawn during the fall. For best results, you should apply the herbicide when outdoor temperatures are at least 50 degrees Fahrenheit. 

2. Aerate

Aeration is another popular fall lawn care activity that can help prevent future weed growth. By removing small plugs of soil from your yard, grass roots are given more space to grow and have easier access to water and other nutrients. This healthy root growth essentially crowds out areas where weeds might grow.

3. Apply Fertilizer

Fall fertilizing will give your grass extra nutrients to get through the winter and prepare it for strong spring growth. Better still, many fertilizers also contain weed control formulas, giving you an extra layer of protection against potential growths.
