How Often Will I Need Weed Control Services to Keep My Lawn Weed-Free?

Weeds are tricky to deal with, often reappearing again and again even after we think they have been killed off. Weed control services can help you get control of your lawn and treat weeds systematically so they won’t continue to reappear.

How Often Will I Need Weed Control Services to Keep My Lawn Weed-Free?

Unfortunately, weed control isn’t a one-time fix. Weed seeds are constantly being brought to your yard by birds, animals, wind, and even on your person, so continual weed control services will be necessary to keep your lawn looking lush and weed-free. Also, different weeds require a different treatment plan, so how often your lawn needs to be serviced will depend on the weeds infesting your lawn.

Weed Control ServicesGenerally, there are two basic approaches to weed control. Pre-emergent weed control is to prevent the weeds from growing up in the first place. This is a preventative approach at weed control that ideally will keep the weeds from appearing. If it is successful, you might feel tempted to discontinue your weed control services, since you aren’t seeing any weeds in your yard, but you’ll soon regret it because no untreated yard will last long without weeds. Post-emergent weed control is for the weeds that have already sprouted in your yard. This type of weed control is most effective when the leaves of the weed are very long, so it’s important not to cut your lawn for several days before the weed service shows up to treat your lawn.

Weed control is most effective when combined with proper watering, fertilizing, and timing of grass cutting.
